Over the last decade or so Mara TK has made a name for himself for having one of the more soulful voices in Aotearoa. Having played with the likes of Troy Kingi, Avantdale Bowling Club, and fronting electro-soul trio Electric Wire Hustle, TK made the decision to branch out on his own. His debut album offering, ‘Bad Meditation’, proves an eclectic mix of psychedelic soul and spacey RnB.

Troy (Te Arawa, Ngāpuhi, Te Whānau-ā-Apanui) is an actor and an multi-award-winning, multi-genre musician originally from Rotorua and Te Kaha. A small-town boy at heart, Kingi is now based in Kerikeri, Bay of Islands, where he lives a pretty simple life with his wife and five children.
