ABOUT TROY KINGI
2018 is Tory’s year and he’s still buzzing from taking home four music awards in 2018, including two Tui’s for the Best Māori Artist, and Best Soul R&B Artist at this years Vodafone Music Awards. Also the Best Māori Pop Artist and Best Māori Male Solo Artist awards at the Waiata Māori Music Awards in September. 
Troy has a string releases and is well known for his soulful live performances. His latest studio album 'Shake That Skinny Ass All The Way To Zygertron' is a soulful masterpiece that has established Kingi as a versatile artist in both Te Ao Māori and as a soul R&B artist. 

“A big inspiration during the writing process was Shuggie Otis's 'Inspiration Information' album from 1974. Just the overall aesthetic of the album - warm, real pleasing to the ear but weird at the same time. This album ' Shake That Skinny Ass All The Way To Zygertron' is a fictional account of two people from different times & dimensions meeting in the cosmos - falling in love and having a child with golden feet - fulfilling an ancient prophesy written in the hieroglyphics of the coming of the messiah”
The Kerikeri-based actor and musician wears a lot of hats, he's acted in roles such as TK in Taika Waititi's Hunt For The Wilderpeople, and won the APRA Silver Scroll Maioha Award in 2015 for his song with Stan Walker ‘Aotearoa’. Kingi has now unveiled his sophomore album Shake That Skinny Ass All The Way To Zygertron, a sprawling sci-fi soul odyssey inspired by interstellar love, mystic prophesy, and 70s cosmic funk artists Funkadelic. Recorded with his band including fellow vintage synth enthusiast Ed Zuccollo (Trinity Roots), and Mara TK (Electric Wire Hustle).
