About our featured Artist -

Melodownz hip-hop lyricist (Bronson Price), is a half cast’ Polynesian urban poet and artist raised in the phone line tangled urban village of Avondale, Auckland, New Zealand. From feel-good partay vibes that will keep your head nodding to pre-tinder date jitters or an epic song for a local boxer as he enters the ring, musically, Melodownz has you covered. Through solo endeavours, his team (Third3ye) or collective (Young Gifted and Broke), Melodownz has taken his stage spot at major festivals and shows throughout Europe and New Zealand including Rhythm and Vines, Home Grown, Sound Splash, Northern Bass, Splore, Bay Dreams and the main stage at Laneway festival.
