New Zealand is famous for several things including New Zealander Sir Edmund Hilary who was the first person to conquer Mount Everest, Manuka honey which is produced by bees foraging on the flowers of the Manuka tree, a very special tree that only grows in New Zealand and it is the backdrop for both The Lord Of The Rings and Hobbit film franchises. Well we know introduce to you musician, singer, writer and film composer Blair Jollands.

Jollands’s hometown is Grey Lynn, New Zealand an inner Grey Lynn, New Zealand and he has worked on many much loved television series and films including ‘Poldark’, ‘Fortitude’, ‘Doc Martin’ and Rihanna’s 2013 TV movie documentary ‘777.’

In addition, he has previously collaborated with Boy George and The Strokes producer Gordon Raphael, and released albums under his alter ego El Hula. However, Blair Jollands is now releasing a brand new album under his own name entitled ‘7 Blood’. The album was inspired by his travels around the world, and recent battle with Lyme Disease. ‘7 Blood’ takes its name from a killing herb that Jollands collected from an Andalusian mountainside, in order to combat the superbug.

You can watch the official video for ‘Restless Soul’ which is taken from this album in this article.

“Restless Soul seems quite sad at first but then it has these lyrics of resilience. However, the real highlight from the track is Jollands smooth harmonica playing which is very easy on the ear alongside the powerful backing vocalists. A very impressive introduction to this gentleman.” – Glenn Sargeant Just Listen To This 

The record was recorded in London, Andalucia & Aotearoa. Blair Jollands also produced the entire record and enlisted Kirsa Wilkenschildt for the album artwork.
