Following a run of three sold-out headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne, Papua New Guinea born now Sydney-based singer-songwriter Ngaiire, caps off a huge year by announcing a 2020 live tour visiting Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney with accompanying festival appearances in Perth and Adelaide.
In October, Ngaiire released her first taste of new music with “Shiver”, which had previously been shortlisted for the Vanda and Young Global Songwriting Competition before it had even entered the world. Premiered via Billboard, the single saw Ngaiire explore her Papua New Guinean roots, tackling head-on the light and dark of life, death and the spirit world. The track has since been added at triple j and community radio, appeared on Spotify’s New Music Friday and Apple Music’s New Music Daily playlists, and adored by fans the world over.
Ngaiire has built a musical identity that effortlessly crosses genre and art form. Having become renowned for her impressive vocal force, tight beats, incredible costuming and big pop sounds, Ngaiire has acquired countless accolades including four National Live Music Awards, an FBi Radio SMAC Award for best live act and the inaugural Australian Women in Music Award for Artistic Excellence.
A breathtaking performer, Ngaiire has graced the world’s most renowned stages, from Splendour in the Grass all the way to Glastonbury. Consistently in the company of greatness, she has toured alongside the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Alicia Keys and Leon Bridges, as well as composing for dance companies and showcasing her work at experimental art spaces.
