Biography

Henika is Henrieta Tornyai, a newcomer multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter whose music blends genres as diverse as alternative rock, folk and jazz.

Announcing the self-titled debut EP by Henika, an NZ alternative solo artist, arriving on September 1st 2016. Recorded and produced by the legendary Andrew Buckton (Midnight Youth, Steriogram, D4) and featuring veteran drummer Mike Franklin-Browne (Pluto, Head Like A Hole), it is a polished yet fresh debut. The 6 track EP includes Henika’s previously released single ‘You bring me down’, a song that won Wildcard funding by popular vote from NZonAir in 2015.

Somewhere between Joni Mitchell and PJ Harvey, the EP swings from darkness to light, from stripped down, to a huge wall of sound. The vulnerable openness of a track like ‘The River’ is contrasted by the Jeff Buckley-esque dissonant layered guitars of ‘Torn in Two.’ A creamy and haunting lead vocal, introspective lyrics and 3 part harmonies combine to create a dark cinematic atmosphere, not unlike a David Lynch soundtrack.

ART IS MUCH LESS IMPORTANT THAN LIFE.............

Everyone is doom and gloom about the state of the music industry these days. There is no money in music anymore, it's a scarcity mindset, it's saturated, the glory days are over.

ON A GOOD NOTE - We are here to experiment and see if we do our bit (write great songs and perform them + collaborate + break some rules), can we PUT THE JOY BACK INTO THE HUSTLE'

Yes, ART IS MUCH LESS IMPORTANT THAN LIFE..........

.......BUT WHAT A POOR LIFE WITHOUT IT

Support the hustlers, come and catch a show.
