Aotearoa Music Award-winning artist Leaping Tiger is back in Aotearoa for the first time in months after spending the second half of the year in the UK homing his crafts. It was only right the jack of all synths brings back his live electronic set back to the city, this time at the newest live venue in town, Big Fan. It’s hard to stay still during a Leaping Tiger set, whether he’s tearing it up on bass, getting into a groove on the keyboard or getting a workout in on his synth pad.
With support from rising indie pop star Hanbee, the songstress has been seen with the Always Be Grateful collective who have been on a roll around the country throwing live gigs and club nights. More recently Hanbee opened for Fazerdaze at Hollywood Avondale and released her debut EP ‘Seashell Casette’, capping off a big 2022 for Hanbee.
