Summer Thieves

Rising from the dusty rinsed streets of ‘Scarfieville’, Dunedin’s Summer Thieves are a melting pot of reggae, hip-hop, rock, and funk. It’s a laid back approach that’s proven dangerously effective too, with the band comprised of Johnny Ward (Drums and Vocals), Adam Spencer (Bass), Angus Cleland (Keys, Samples and Percussion) and Jake Barton (Guitar and Vocals) amassing a legion of breathers nationwide.

In 2014, the boys first entered the studio with Kiwi legend and multi-platinum award winning artist and producer Tiki Taane, to start work on their debut album.

The release topped off an already huge year for the boys who were selected to join spiritual braddas Sticky Fingers once again on their now third sold-out NZ tour; adding to the list of international and local acts they’ve worked with which includes Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Six60, Ocean Alley, Katchafire, Sons of Zion and many more.
