Kingsley Spargo are three-piece performance trio Kingsley Spargo (guitar, voice, pūmoana, trumpet) Kim Meredith (poet and spoken tale) with Chris Orange (double bass, vocals). Poet Kim Meredith shouts of epochs in the 21st century, the daughter of a failed migrant farmer with Hollywood dreams manifesting in popcorn love, she calls on her ancestors to bring her complex modern tales to the stage.

Auckland based for the past two decades, the vocalist, musician and sound artist riffs heavily on soundscape and darkness to transfix audiences with Meredith’s tales. Ever the musical anarchist, bass man Chris Orange’s pedigree spans the golden era of ‘70’s Auckland punk (Terrorways, The Features) to free jazz in Japan, and here he adds texture, colour and a sense of lightness to the heavy themes of a 21st century conversation.less
