Friday 28th July - Loons, Lyttelton
Saturday 29th July - San Fran, Wellington*

Known for her mesmerizing, country-inflected music, Erny Belle has already impressed audiences with her debut album, Venus Is Home, released in February 2022, which was self-produced and reissued on vinyl LP by Flying Nun.

As an exceptional performer, Erny Belle has previously opened for Billy Bragg, Orville Peck, and Andy Shauf during their international tours. Her upcoming shows on the Hōtoke Tour are highly anticipated and not to be missed.
