"WiEkko" are a husband and wife, two piece acoustic act, formed in March 2013.
Natasha Kinsey, a Canadian born Tongan singer/songwriter, has a style influenced by the acoustic arrangements of Bon Iver, Ben Howard and Laura Marling. Natasha combines unique, minimalist, arpeggio guitar arrangements with ethereal sounding vocals.
Daniel Doyle is a British born singer/songwriter, now based in New Zealand. After 5 years with progressive rock band, Silhouette Showgirls, Daniel decided to embark on a new journey that could fully utilise his emotive songwriting skills and all power, yet vulnerable sounding vocals.
"WiEkko" met in late January by chance at an Open Mic night. After becoming good friends, (now life companions), with a dedicated passion for music, they started to write some original material together. Inspired by an eclectic mix of shared life experiences, it epitomises the raw, honest nature of their sound.
