MPR CONSULTING – New Zealand’s root reggae rockers Katchafire have been nominated for two NZ Music Awards – ‘Best Roots Artist’ and ‘Best Maori Artist’ – off the back of the release of their 5th studio album ‘Legacy’ in June. The 2018 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards takes place in Auckland on November 15, 2018. Having proudly repped New Zealand roots music around the world for the past 20 years, Katchafire were also honoured earlier in 2018 with a nomination for Best Group at the Island Music Awards in Hawaii.
As the band readies for their upcoming Legacy Love Today Tour with Jamaican self-contained reggae band EarthKry, Katchafire has announced the video release date of fan favourite track “100”! From their successful ‘Legacy’ album, ‘100’ will premiere October 5 via TopShelfReggae.com (The people’s source for reggae rock news, reviews, and videos www.topshelfreggae.com), and will have its broadcast premiere on MTV NZ RnB Block (5 Oct – 8.30am). The song has been receiving radio airplay and has hit the NZ Hot Singles Chart + Shazam charts over the past few weeks.
Speaking about ‘100’ singer Logan Bell said “it’s a song about real subject matter; about missing home, about our lifestyle. It focusses on mums, and wives and grandmothers and it’s a tribute to the ladies in your life that create life and give life…”
