Songbroker welcomes Looking For Alaska

Songbroker are delighted to welcome Hamilton folk duo Looking For Alaska to the fold.

Members Aaron Gott and Amy Maynard create a sound rooted in country-style guitar and soaring harmonies woven together at their very fibre, intensified by their on-stage chemistry. The duo's familiarity, closeness and authenticity is fuelled by their real-life romance, creating a magnetic performance style that captivates their audience time and time again, and has seen them open for the likes of Fly My Pretties, Herbs and Tiny Ruins, and as a featured act at the Auckland Folk Festival.

In 2016, Looking For Alaska and their band spent 2 whirlwind days recording at the legendary Roundhead Studios in Auckland; what emerged was their self titled debut album Looking For Alaska. Released in October 2016, the album has since spent 5 weeks on the NZ album chart and been a finalist for the Auckland Live Best Independent Debut Album award at the 2017 Taite Music Prize.

Since then, Looking For Alaska have been busy touring, playing to sold out rooms around New Zealand on their album release tour, and writing new material. 2017 will see Aaron and Amy take to the road again to share both songs from their debut album and new songs due for release on their sophomore album in 2018.
