TEEKS (real name Te Karehana Gardiner-Toi) grew up surrounded by music and performance . Teeks has just released his debut EP GRAPEFRUIT SKIES. Recorded both in New York and in New Zealand, the EP makes a powerful statement that boldly introduces a young artist, who is unequivocally in my opinion one of New Zealand's next great talents.
Steeped in old-school soul and yet glimmering and shimmering with golden moments that capture TEEKS’ strength of youth, the songs that make up GRAPEFRUIT SKIES - from its velvety smooth lead single ‘If Only’ to the simmering soulful ‘Wash Over Me’ - are no short of stunning. The fact that 23-year-old is completely unassuming about his talents only makes him more appealing as an artist. He’s a clever, kind, committed songwriter, and I am sure he’s on the road to big things. I will attach three of his songs.
Wash Over Me
