Multi-instrumentalist Andrew Keoghan returns from a recent Europe and USA tour, to play new songs and material from his 2011 prize nominated debut Arctic Tales Divide.

Joined by collaborator and percussionist Chris O'Connor (The Phoenix Foundation), the pair have a special musical synergy, with songs sometimes delicate and sparse, other times layered and orchestral. Keoghan mixes carefully arranged folk, pop and electronic, through the use of guitar, beats, synths, violin and looping one-man choir vocals. Songs reflect a fascination with unexpected encounters and unlikely heroes.

His debut LP Arctic Tales Divide received a nomination for the 2012 Taite Prize and was named The New Zealand Herald’s top local album of 2011. A classically trained singer and arranger, Keoghan worked closely with Lawrence Arabia on the string elements for his new release, The Sparrow and The Ruby Suns’ forthcoming album Christopher.

'New Zealand's Andrew Keoghan strikes an engaging midpoint between folk and pop… Expect plenty of plucked violin strings, nimble instrumentation and pretty melodies' – Timeout, New York

'On the night he swapped between mediums with such ease, it was hard not to be impressed by his raw talent' – Broadsheet, Melbourne
