New Zealand born producer, rapper, singer, songwriter, KINGS burst onto the music scene in 2016 with the release of his single, ‘Don’t Worry ‘Bout It’. The track was the biggest local release that year and surpassed the record for longest #1 on the New Zealand Singles Chart, spending 33 consecutive weeks at the top. In late 2017, KINGS returned, with his independently released debut album, ‘Chapter One’. Featuring the hits ‘We’ll Never Know’, ‘Domino’ and ‘In The Sun’.

Despite a seemingly overnight success, KINGS has been on the grind since 2010, producing music under his self-run label Arch Angel Records. He first learned the skills of his trade from completing a foundation year course at MAINZ. Taking what he had learned in commercial music production, KINGS provided music production services for companies around the world for use in commercials, television and film. He also made a name for himself on a number of tracks with some of New Zealand’s finest electronic producers including Dan Aux, General Lee, and Jolyon Petch.
Not just dominant in the studio, KINGS has become one of Aotearoa’s most in demand live acts, performing at some of the country’s biggest events and festivals, including Homegrown, Rhythm and Vines, One Love, Bay Dreams, Electric Coastline and Soundsplash. In 2019, Kings set his sights on hitting overseas, starting with local shows in Australia. Performing at TRL on MTV Australia being the most recent interaction with the Australian audience.
