One of New Zealand’s most compelling voices of modern soul, TEEKS (Te Karehana Gardiner-Toi) shares his long-awaited debut album Something To Feel.  

To mark this special milestone, TEEKS is proud to announce a very special, six-date album tour, which will see the celebrated Māori artist perform in some of New Zealand’s greatest concert venues of all time. Following last year’s The Invitation Tour, which sold out in less than 7 days, this is TEEKS in full force, backed by full band and string quartet in a headlining tour that is not to be missed.

Written and produced by TEEKS, the album’s first single ‘Without You’ was followed by ‘I’, offering some emotional comfort in a time of uprooted living during 2020's Covid-19 lockdowns.  This was followed up by ‘II’ and a very special, sold-out tour late last year which gave audiences in select New Zealand towns the chance to experience Something To Feel up close and in person. Backed by the acclaimed Black Quartet, TEEKS performed in beautiful, historic venues from the Far North to the Deep South. 

Before long, TEEKS revealed his greatest love song to date, 'Remember Me'. Between the bars of this soaring, expansive anthem, he bleeds emotional vulnerability in a bold statement of modern masculinity. Watch the music video here, in which TEEKS made his directional debut, working alongside director Ray Edwards and producer Mia Henry-Teirney. 

Arriving at a crucial time, Something To Feel is an album of deep emotion, showcasing the artist’s connection to family, heritage, and his home country through the lens of Te Ao Māori. Cast from the most isolated corner of the earth – a private universe away – TEEKS shares a songbook destined to connect the world. New Zealand audiences will be the first to witness this precious album live.
