Papaiti Records presents Welcomer, Mystery Waitress and shannengeorgiapetersen.
Papaiti is a DIY label started Whanganui in 2009, now based in Auckland. All releases are free, including their extensive live music archive.
Despite being a relatively new project, Welcomer has already garnered a reputation for poignant live shows. The 5-piece, centred around main songwriter Miles Sutton, write wry and misty pop songs.
Mystery Waitress is the project of Wellington-based songwriter, Tessa Dillon. Tessa is the vocalist, lead guitarist and occasional pianist in the Mystery Waitress band which also includes Olivia Campion (Yumi Zouma, Girlboss, Dam Dans), Xanthe Rook (Recitals) and James Morgan.
Fast becoming a cherished voice in New Zealand independent music, Shannen Petersen (who also performs in Fruit Juice Parade, Sports Dreams and Welcomer) writes localised heartful classics. When asked for a bio, Shannen offered 'sgp is a man with an axe'.
