L.A.B’s groove blends an eclectic mix of reggae, electronic, blues, funk and rock – all combining to create a sound entirely their own. Formed by drummer & producer Brad Kora, L.A.B comprises his brother Stu Kora, Ara Adams-Tamatea, Miharo Gregory & frontman Joel Shadbolt. L.A.B released their debut album in 2017, releasing a new album every year since.
L.A.B made their name on the live stages of New Zealand and won Radio New Zealand’s publicly-voted Best Live Act of 2019, with this reputation seeing them play to over 200,000 people that year. Their fourth album, L.A.B IV in 2020 debuted at Number One on the Official Album Charts, while single ‘Why Oh Why’ reached Number One on the Official Top 40 Singles Chart. Their hit single ‘In The Air’ peaked at Number One in 2020, and has remained in the charts ever since. L.A.B’s success story continues – selling-out arenas and stadiums, dominating the charts, and being awarded People’s Choice and Best Roots Artist at the 2020 Aotearoa Music Awards.
Internationally, demand is high for L.A.B. Their debut headline tour of Australia has sold over 20,000 tickets despite being postponed multiple times since the original dates in 2020 due to the pandemic. The latest postponement has seen the tour shift to April 2022, with multiple sold-out dates in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Fremantle, alongside new shows soon to be announced in Melbourne and Sydney.
L.A.B continue to assert themselves as one of NZ’s hardest-working acts, with no signs of slowing down. Late-2021 will see the release of their fifth studio album, supported by three large outdoor New Zealand shows in January 2022, including Auckland’s iconic Western Springs Stadium and five sold out Australian shows in April 2022.
