On August 24th Iva Lamkum releases her debut album Black Eagle.

A songs-as-storybook collection of half a decade day-to-day experiences, Black Eagle consists of a series of deeply personal, yet universally relatable meditations on family, hard-work, internal conflict, the loved and the loveless.

Drawing stylistically on elements of roots reggae, folk, rock, funk, indie and beyond, the album repositions Iva, an artist oft viewed under a neo soul light, within a borderless musical world.

To celebrate the release of the album, Iva is embarking on her first national tour.

Kicking off the tour in Iva’s hometown Wellington with a massive album release party. 

For this special gig only many of the artists who appeared on the album will be performing on stage with Iva and her full band.

Guests such as Aaradhna, Bella Kalolo, Stephanie Paris, Winnie Baxter and Lisa Tomlins. As well as if that wasn’t enough, the line up also includes DJ Ayesha, Kemara Fuimaono, Jean Pompey and DJ Don Luchito.

The tour travels to Auckland, Raglan, Leigh, Christchurch and Dunedin. (Support acts tbc).

“For those who miss Amy Winehouse's alto blues pipes, try the New Zealand-based, Samoan/Chinese singer Iva Lamkum on for size.” – MTV Iggy

“Iva first came to my attention on Sola Rosa’s fantastic Get It Together from 2009. Hearing lead single ‘Turn Around’ for the first time I was instantly hooked … who was the lady with the husky, soulful, funk-tinged voice?” – Soul:UK
