Sons of Zion have well and truly earned their place as one of the strongest forces in the Australasian music scene and ‘Come Home’ - the first single from a new body of work - sets the bar high for the next chapter in their legacy.
‘Come Home’ follows their Top 40 smash ‘Drift Away’ which is now certified platinum in New Zealand and was the #1 most played song on NZ radio for 11 weeks running, achieving the #1 NZTop20 NZ Single, over 10 million streams and almost 1 million video views.
‘Drift Away’ was featured on their 2018 album Vantage Point, alongside a slew of their other hits including ‘Leave with Me,’ ‘Now’ and ‘Is That Enough (Ft. Aaradhna).’
From their humble Kiwi beginnings, to playing shows across the globe and dominating charts, Sons of Zion have amassed over 40 million streams on Spotify, more than 20 million views on YouTube and 100,000-plus followers on social media.
Their accolades include a NZ Music Award for ‘Best Roots Artist’ in 2018, NZ on Air Best Music Video Award for Superman and nominations for ‘Best Māori Urban Roots Album’, ‘Best Song By A Maori Artist’ and ‘Best Song Writer’ at the Waiata Maori Music Awards.
For members Rio, Sam, Joel, Matt, Ross, and Caleb, it’s a track record that has established them as one of the southern hemisphere’s most-loved and well-respected bands.
