Theia Is The Next Big Name In NZ Music
Gin Wigmore, Broods and Lorde may have already made a name for themselves overseas, but this rising star is well on her way to hitting the big time. She burst onto the music scene with her debut single ‘Roam’, which has already reached 100,000 Spotify streams in just one week!
Theia's amazing energy and addictive tunes are part of the reason why her fan base is growing more and more by the day. Her career is taking off, ‘Roam’ debuted at #1 on the NZ Top 50 Viral Chart and is rapidly making its way up the US Viral Top 50 Chart on Spotify.
Produced by Josh Fountain, 'Roam' is going to be your new fave tune. The single is a great indicator of things to come, as Theia is not one to shy away from writing about the angst and bliss of youth, love, heartbreak, identity and finding yourself.
“I had back-to-back trips away writing in studios. One week in Sydney, the next in Auckland. Living out of hotel rooms, walking back at dark under the city lights, feeling like a gypsy and lonely,” she says. “My emotions - like the tides - would be continually up and down. I realised I had to get to the place where I was so at peace and strong in myself that it didn't matter where I was, or the circumstances, I was at home. Hence the lyric – “everywhere I roam is home”.”
Warner Music recently announced they signed the local artist.
“We are very excited to welcome Theia to the Warner Music family,” says General Manager Phil Howling. “Since hearing her first recordings almost six months ago we have seen this incredibly talented young woman develop musically and personally into someone who has a very bright future ahead of them.”
Until she releases more tunes, we'll just have 'Roam' on loop.
