SOL3 MIO announce nationwide tour to round out the Kiwi summer! SOL3 MIO, will perform in some of the country's most loved regional venues with a repertoire of classics as well as debut some of their own new material.
Sol3 Mio are an operatic pop vocal trio from Auckland, New Zealand. Comprised of Samoan-descended brother's Pene and Amitai Pati - both tenors - and their baritone cousin Moses Mackay, the group fuses classical, opera, and pop music with a playful wit and frequent nods to their Samoan heritage. All three are classically trained and had been pursuing their own careers when, in 2008, Pene and Moses found themselves in the backing choir for famed Italian star Andrea Bocelli.
The inspiration they felt from that concert stayed with them, and in 2011 they united with Amitai for a series of fundraising concerts that would launch their career as Sol3 Mio. By 2013 they had signed with and recorded their self-titled debut, a collection of traditional and popular songs that immediately topped the New Zealand Albums Chart and became the biggest-selling album in the country that year. Sol3 Mio's success continued in 2014 with the release of a four-song EP, a holiday single, and appearances around the world. Their 2015 follow-up album, On Another Note, also reached number one in New Zealand led by the single "I See Fire," a cover of Ed Sheeran's song from The Hobbit soundtrack.
Having rescheduled their Spark Sessions Auckland show to March 11, the trio are excited about adding new tour dates and hitting the road!
"It's been a tough year for everyone and it's time to get together and sing!"
"We love touring here in Aotearoa, especially to perform in some of these stunning venues, we can't wait to share these new songs with you,” Moses Mackay said.
