Volume Sunday Sessions: Rubita, Helen Corry, Vallkyrie
Join us in March to hear the Latin swings and pop ties of Rubita’s modern day take on jazz, the sounds of dynamic live performer Helen Corry and epic South Auckland artists Vallkyrie.
Songwriting has always been Rubita's greatest strength. She won best songwriter in the national Battle of the Bands competition in 2016 for her raw picturesque lyrics.
Rubita played in multiple bands before concentrating on her own music. Her debut EP Brutal Yet Dulce Soap, with Latin swings and pop ties, will have your heart swaying to her lyrically clever and emotive songs.
She recently graduated with a degree in composition and performance from the University of Otago, and was the first woman to graduate with a major in electric guitar.
Helen Corry is a darling of the festival scene where she has brought her dynamic live performance to Rhythm and Vines, Homegrown, New Zealand Beer Fest, Our House, Deep Hard 'N' Funky, and Spring Break Fiji among others. With her own EP due out in early 2017 you can expect big things in the coming year from Helen.
Helen's ability to put her own special touch on classic covers has made her an in-demand entertainer in New Zealand and Australia. Her debut EP is due out in 2017.
Rebel Reid and Omer Gilroy are the powerhouses behind the industrial storm that is the new-age girl-power band Vallkyrie. Brandon Haru is their Viking drummer.
Theatrical, anthemic, and epic, Vallkyrie have worked ceaselessly to create a unique sound and an entire immersive world. They are proud Māori artists, with their heritage playing a key role in their songwriting.
The trio have placed third at Battle of the Bands 2015 and taken home the title of Best Vocalist at the Demon Energy Award. Vallkyrie will release their anticipated debut album in 2017.
Volume Sunday Sessions are presented in in partnership with the Music Managers Forum and The Rockshop.
