This slinkly Sax man is making a name for himself in New Zealand and abroad with his tasty licks and unique performance and production styles. He has performed with countless artists, including Molly + The Chormatics and Strangely Arousing, and contributed with songwriting and arrangement for acts such as Superhero Second Line, New Jungle Order, and Straight Face. We have been lucky to have him in on the project from the start.
Sean, tall as a pylon and a constant reminder of the 70's, is an Auckland based drummer, who has spent the last decade playing around New Zealand & Australia. Starting with Auckland based pop group The Earlybirds, Sean now spends his time playing in synth-pop group Lightning on Me, and drumming for Zaine Griff. We were fortunate to have him play the drums on Come Around Sundown.

With my last rupee I bought a chocolate bar which happened to contain a golden ticket to Aotearoa. Dean studied at jazz school much to his parents' dismay, and has since played with bands such as Batucada Sound Machine, Stormporter, Stanky and the Acetones as well as a few other gigs around town.”
Ema's sultry vocal has snuck it's way into the jam room and we are always stoked when it does. Her voice adds a lovely colour to any project as evident in The Lucky May Duo and at her solo performances. You will most likely find Ema hosting fantastic Open Mic Nights at Portland Public House, playing music or even on screen.
