Thursday 18th May 2017

Aka “Tourettes”, Dominic Hoey has released five critically acclaimed studio albums, two books of poetry and four short films. Performing two sellout shows with Sam Hunt at Auckland's Golden Dawn, he also opened for Sam Hunt at Splore Festival. Dominic has performed in Australia, Europe, England, Japan, and North America, and he toured New Zealand last year with musician Will Wood, releasing four singles from his album "Feel like shit, looking great!"
