To match his very impressive and quite often moving debut album Awa Blues (released March 2021). Grant Haua was longtime half of blues-roots stompers Swamp Thing (with drummer Michael Barker). He will present in concert his deep-timbered soul blues vocals/acoustic guitars and foot percussion (Cajon/snare) in a performance of style that relates heavily to his Māori culture which is at the heart of these songs. Grant wants the audiences at his show to feel like they’re guests in his home and like the songs, his home is pretty simple but it’s warm, cozy and friendly. So welcome. This is his place. Awa Blues tour 2022. Kia ora koutou!
‘A seasoned artist who touches all kinds of points in the blues and folk from Taj Mahal and JJ Cale to dialled down Stevie Ray and even an adventurous touch of acoustic James Blood Ulmer. Seems like this is Grant Haua’s time’ Graham Reid (Elsewhere Magazine).
