Quickly making a name for themselves with their sun-soaked reggae-inspired sound, Corrella has become a new favourite on the Aotearoa music scene. Their single ‘Blue Eyed Māori’ is the sleeper hit of 2023, and the band has continued that momentum throughout summer 2024 with a busy schedule of live shows, and their latest single ‘Lady Divine’.

After their impressive summer run, Corrella is thrilled to announce their upcoming North Island headline tour. Performing Friday 17 May in Mount Maunganui at Totara St, Saturday 25 May at Auckland’s Powerstation and Friday 31 May in Wellington at San Fran, tickets are on sale now

Named for the naval-base where the band met, Corrella’s first release, their self-titled EP was released in 2021, announcing their arrival on the reggae-music scene. They wasted no time following up with a series on singles through 2022, including the track ‘Raumati’, which was featured as part of the Waiata Anthems 2022 series. 

‘Skankin’, the first single from their album, announced their arrival to the wider music scene, making an impact on New Zealand radio. May saw the release of their debut full-length album, Road From 26. The album is a powerful, modern & outright vibe which takes the listener on a journey from Corrella’s past to present. With their signature feel-good roots-reggae, the album sees them incorporating funk, soul & pop-rock sounds throughout. 

One of the standouts from the album, the track ‘Blue Eyed Māori’ has seen the band’s audience grow on the back of this laid-back earworm. The track is one of the most-played songs on NZ radio & one of the most-streamed tracks through 2023. The track has spent over 30 weeks at Number One on the Official NZ Top 20 Singles chart, and is on its way to setting more records.

March 2024 will see Corrella release the Live At Roundhead Studios EP, a new release that showcases the band's live sound and presents four new live versions of tracks from their catalogue. 

Driven by rhythm guitarist & hype man Te Naawe Tupe (Ngāi Tūhoe) & lead singer Pipiwharauroa Campbell (Ngāi Te Rangi, Ngāti He, Ngāti Pukenga), Corrella are set to keep the ball rolling with a North Island Tour, and more new music to come to establish themselves as a new staple of the Aotearoa music scene.
