THEIA burst onto the scene in 2016 with her hit song ‘Roam’.
Her distinctive vocals and exquisite harmonies paired with
dreamy, ethereal glitter-pop and sultry R’n’B, made an indelible
mark and left audiences around the world wanting more.
‘Roam’ also dominated the airwaves in New Zealand, reaching
radio’s coveted ‘Top 5’ in the Airplay Charts and holding #1 spot
as the most played Kiwi song for seven consecutive weeks.
It has also received airplay on Top 40 radio in South East Asia.
In June 2017 THEIA made her most significant statement yet
– the release of her self-titled debut EP. The six-track record
captures a young artist at a career-defining moment in time
and establishes THEIA as a rare talent with a bright future
ahead of her.
The six songs that make up the EP stand alone as individual
pieces of work – well-crafted with meaningful lyrics and infectious
melodic hooks. And yet side-by- side, they come together as a
complete body of work showcasing Theia’s knack of seamlessly
blending genres and taking the listener on a journey.
The EP debuted at #15 in New Zealand’s Official Top 40, and
at #3 in the NZ Album Chart. It also charted in the NZ iTunes
Top 10. Internationally, it peaked at #7 in the Malaysian iTunes
chart, #3 in the Malaysian pop chart. In Indonesia it peaked
at #53 in the iTunes chart and #28 in the pop chart. It also
entered the iTunes Top 100 in Japan, Spain and France.
This debut success has just seen THEIA announced as a
finalist at this year’s Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards –
nominated in three categories, ‘Single Of The Year’ (‘Roam’),
‘Pop Artist Of The Year’ and ‘People’s Choice Award’. THEIA
has also been announced as performing at the awards –
televised live across New Zealand.
THEIA has been labelled one of New Zealand’s brightest
emerging talents and she’s taken her music to the world –
playing at this year’s MUSEXPO in Los Angeles and also at
Music Matters in Singapore. She also supported Broods on
a nationwide tour over summer 2016/17 and opened for
The Kite String Tangle on his Australian tour early in 2017.
To celebrate the release of her EP, THEIA carried out a
headline tour in New Zealand, receiving rave reviews:
“She instantly commanded the crowd’s attention as she
launched into the opening track of her EP Silver Second, and
proved to everyone who was seeing her live for the first time
that her new found fame is totally deserved” – The Speakeasy
In December 2017, THEIA will support Sia, alongside MO and
Charli XCX at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland. She will also
perform at three of New Zealand’s biggest summer festivals
– R&V, Bay Dreams and Electric Avenue.
