Hinemoana Baker

Musician and writer Hinemoana Baker will team up with singer-songwriter and recording artist Charlotte Yates, and multi-instrumentalist and sound designer Gil Eva Craig, for a pre-Berlin bash in Paekākāriki in September.

Many will remember Charlotte Yates from the iconic 1990s band ‘When the Cat’s Been Spayed’, and her work directing and producing the critically acclaimed poetry-to-music albums 'Baxter', 'Tuwhare' and 'Ihimaera'.

Charlotte and Gil have just completed an extensive North Island tour with Arts on Tour, and worked together on Charlotte's most recent album 'Archipelago', which was produced and arranged by Gil.

Charlotte has recorded six albums of her own, studied contemporary music technology and composition in Australia, produced two Melbourne Fringe Arts Festivals, been artist in residence in Christchurch (2002) and was a finalist for the APRA Silver Scroll Award with the song 'Red Letter' from her first album 'Queen Charlotte Sounds'.

Hinemoana Baker was recently awarded the Creative New Zealand Berlin Writers' Residency. She leaves for Germany in October but not before celebrating and farewelling in style with one of her most long-standing musical mentors in the lovely village where she used to live.

Hinemoana has previously performed her music and poems with sonic settings around New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia and the US. She was Arts Queensland Poet in Residence in 2009 and writer in residence with the International Writing Programme at the University of Iowa in 2010. She spent 2014 as writer in residence at the International Institute of Modern Letters, Victoria University.

The event in Paekākāriki will offer a mix of recent releases and much-loved favourites from Charlotte and Gil, as well as songs and poems from Hinemoana's two albums and three poetry collections.

"Yates' fine voice and astute pop songwriting are more than ably backed up by her intuitive guitar work." North and South

"Had she been born a few decades later, the Kiwi music machine would be all over her talent and hooky semi-acoustic songs like the proverbial rash. Archipelago sees her paired with producer-musician Gil Eva Craig, who adds extra colour and texture to the confident unguarded emotion that is the hallmark of Yates' work." Nick Ward, Stuff

"[Hinemoana] has a remarkable voice, velvety and musical, cool and laconic all at once." David Eggleton, New Zealand Listener
