KINGS & ASSOCIATES
Kings & Associates were recently named 3 time winners of the 2018 Australian Blues Music Awards for Best Band, Best New Talent and Best Producer.
Since their humble beginnings, winning the 2014 South Australian Blues and Roots Association award for 'Most Outstanding New Act', Kings & Associates have truly developed into one of Australia's most uniquely new and exciting neo blues bands.
Their 2014 debut album Red Dress, recorded in Adelaide and mixed by Andrija Tokic ('Alabama Shakes' 'Boys & Girls'), hit no.1 on the iTunes Blues charts in Australia.
Their 2017 follow up album, Tales Of A Rich Girl, produced by Jim Scott (Rolling Stones, Sting, the Chilli Peppers, Foo Fighters, Crowded House) and mixed by Vance Powell (Dixie Chicks, Jack White and Chris Stapleton) went to number 1 on the Australian Blues and Roots Radio Charts in week 2 of its release, and reached number 15 on the Roots Radio International Charts, compiled from global radio playlists.
Reviews have been nothing short of astonishing with Huffington Post’s Randy Radic labelling it “a humdinger from the land down under”.
After 2 successful shows in NZ last March, Kings & Associates return to Aotearoa in August for a 7-date tour of the North Island, starting in Paihia for three shows at the Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues Festival, then heading on to Whangarei, Wellington, Napier and Hamilton.
