Nai Palm - lead singer of Australian multi-Grammy nominated band Hiatus Kaiyote - is the type of artist that arrives once in a generation, and PAINT IT GOLD is extremely excited to invite her back for a very special set of shows
Nai Palm is a composer, instrumentalist, producer, vocalist and poet who approaches all of these self-taught disciplines with an intuitive, infectious grace which sent her on a journey to sculpt songs that have been received and treasured across the world. It is a world she has travelled many times over with her live band project Hiatus Kaiyote, who along with Nai Palm have become household names since they first began playing together in Melbourne in 2011.
Championed the world over by musical icons including Questlove, Erykah Badu, Anderson Paak and the late Prince, 2017 has seen Hiatus Kaiyote's album sampled on two of Hip-hop’s biggest releases, opening Drake's project More Life, and closing Kendrick Lamar’s album Damn.
This success set the stage for Nai Palm’s first solo release Needle Paw in 2017. Needle Paw is Nai Palm’s self-imposed challenge to explore the potential for immortality and timelessness within her music by stripping away the produced layers to focus on the element that is closest to the source of the human soul, the voice. Following her sold out tour of Australia we’re excited to invite her back for her first NZ shows
