Live session: Drax Project

Tuesday 26th April 2016

Drax Project drop into Blue Barn Studios to perform some favourites from their new EP.

Wellington quartet Drax Project started out as a fixture of the Friday night Cuba Street busking scene with drummer Matt Beachen and saxophonist Shaan Singh jamming for rent money. Their improvised interpretations of pop favourites attracted a loyal following, some extra band mates (Sam Thomson on bass and Ben O'Leary on guitar) and sold-out gigs.

Releasing their second EP T/W/OO earlier this month, Drax Project enlisted Devin Abrams (Pacific Heights, ex-Shapeshifter) on production duties to record at Wellington's Blue Barn Studios. 

Returning to scene of many late night studio sessions, RNZ Music's Yadana Saw joins the band for a live, stripped back session of original and interpreted tunes.
