Whether it's drumming for Australia's most critically acclaimed band The Drones, fronting his own outfit The Gentlemen of Fortune or releasing solo albums such as 2011's much lauded "The Balladeer Hunter", Mike Noga has carved a huge name for himself in the Australian music scene. From the lyrical and sonic assault of three-time nominated and one-time winners of the Australian Music Prize, The Drones, to the stripped back folk-rock of his solo efforts, Noga is one of the most in demand musicians in Australia.

2012 was spent touring the world behind his acclaimed solo album, including a 20 date European jaunt opening for USA's Band of Horses, as well as Australian tours with Okkervil River and Mark Lanegan, and now, for the first time, Noga makes his way across Tasman for two shows supporting his dear friends, North Carolina's Band of Horses once again, as well as performing his own one off, intimate side-shows.

With critics declaring The Balladeer Hunter “an Australian classic” and Noga "one of Australia's most talented new singer-songwriters... a new Paul Kelly or Tim Rogers”, for his first visit to New Zealand Noga will present the album in solo mode - with just his guitar, his harmonica and his voice. 'The Balladeer Hunter' is a modern day mix of folk ballads and slap-in-the-face, venom-filled rockers that wreak of early Springsteen, 70s Dylan, the relentless pummeling of Suicide back to back with the secret whisper of Leonard Cohen. Don't miss out on these special shows!
