Tiki Taane



My road in life has been direct.
Growing up in Christchurch, he was always getting into trouble.
He got pretty close to going down a certain path, which probably would've led to gangs, drugs, or prison.
His parents saw that music put him in a better place, so they bought him a guitar to give him a creative outlet.
He spent time working as a sound engineer for other bands, but he was always writing his own music on the side.
Fronted the well-known New Zealand band Salmonella Dub for 11 years.
Eventually, he decided to break away and work on his own music.
His first solo album, Past, Present, Future, was the number-one album in New Zealand in 2007.
Now he's gone back to his production roots; founded Tikidub Productions, where he acts as a producer, engineer, and artist.
