Lewis Eady is over the moon to present Lawrence Arabia performing an intimate solo concert in our showroom.

James Milne (real name Lawrence Arabia) has toured the world over, all the while enchanting crowds with his riveting lyrical imagery and understated prowess on the guitar. His recordings for international record labels the Bella Union, Yep Rock, Spunk and NZ's own Honorary Bedouin (his own label no less) and Flying Nun Records have earned him a discerning listenership of fans both young and old. Along the way his efforts have been awarded The APRA Silver Scroll Award, The Taite Prize, and several Vodafone NZ Music Awards, as well as finding the time to write various TV and film scores, an ongoing podcast series with Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) and to this very day, still remains a “real good bugger”. This limited capacity concert will see James perform songs from his long and luxurious back catalogue in an intimate performance in the seated comfort of our piano showroom. Be sure to reserve your seats fast as this will most certainly sell out!

Brace yourself! What’s it all about?
