Return to the roots for singer-songwriter with international music career.

After playing in over 60 countries, Kiwi singer-songwriter Steven Jaymes is back playing a NZ tour. Originally from Oamaru, Steven’s professional music career began when he toured NZ at 17 years of age, soon followed by Australia, and beyond.

Steven’s beautifully gravelly voice and fabulously engaging piano playing have led him to give concerts all over the US, Europe and Asia, including festival and prestigious venues like London’s Ronnie Scott’s and The Bitter End in New York.

While Steven is no stranger to large audiences, he says he equally really enjoys playing in small intimate venues, where there is a true interconnectedness with the people in the room: “I’m really excited to be sharing my music, and in particular the new songs I’ve written since returning to NZ, with people of my home region”. In the past decades, friends and family had to content themselves with listening to him online, via his many albums, but he says that “real magic happens in live performances”. He says he’s very much looking forward to taking his audience on a special journey, by combining his songs with stories from the countries he’s visited.
