Tom Rodwell & Storehouse - Wood And Waste


Friday 24 March 2023




Ticket Info:

Initially launched in mid-2021, when you might recall it was bit of a madcap time for touring in Aotearoa (re: the global pandemic), Tāmaki Makaurau tunesmith Tom Rodwell has announced a official nationwide tour celebrating his latest long playing opus Wood & Waste. Featuring UTR office favourite 'Touch Me Like A Teddy Bear' along with eight more deftly executed, soulful, rhythmic and rockin' gems, the album was laid down at Roundhead Studios on with 100% analogue production courtesy of their custom NEVE console (originally commissioned for The Who). Wood & Waste charted on US radio when it first dropped and will now be celebrated in style with an epic 14 date relaunch tour across the motu.

Tom Rodwell and Storehouse are kicking off proceedings tonight at the super city's iconic The Wine Cellar, featuring Darryn Harkness (Loud Ghost/New Telepathics) on drums and DJ Jon Bywater — while later shows in Raglan, Whangarei, Waiheke and Wellington will bring into the fold Chris O’Connor and Count Bassy. Southern audiences will be treated to Rodwell solo performances in minimalist mode, and all attendees can look forward to "trafficking rolling and tumbling treatments of Wood & Waste material alongside new tunes from recent tape studio sessions, stretches of improvisation and sacrilegious dives into a greasy barrel of calypso and gospel obscurities"

“We’re pleased to be able to bring it all to a lot of different towns this time. The live experience is a special one, and we aim to make each night a distinct kettle of fish.”
