Welcome to RnF's journey!
Avec Toi is the 2nd song written as a band and reflects on the pleasure it is to be playing music with each other. The video is a No cut music video.April 2020
RnF's 2nd Festival with a fantastic lineup in Tutukaka at Waitangi weekend.Feb 2020
It was a blast to play outdoor for the 1st time to a great chilled crowd on a summer afternoon.Jan 2020
Can you work out what this song is about? Check out the video for some cues.Jan 2020
The only True Rock and Roll.DEC 2019
We finished recording the album! Gave a listen to our crowd and played all our other songs acoustically for the 1st time. Beautiful night.NOV 2019
First Rock n Roller. This was a trial and it was a blast. Can't do more Rock n Roll than that! Playing on skates is fantastic! Best high heels!NOV 2019
It was a blast shooting this video crazy dancing on the full moon rising.OCT 2019
With a couple of European film makers who were travelling around NZ we wacked out three videos in 10 days and that's a world record, no pun intended (Autumn Moon, Petrol and Wine and Avec Toi)OCT 2019
First single chosen for its characteristics of rock reggae with a bit a rap carried by a triplet groove gave our audience a cross section look at the early stages of the bands development from two guys n two girls working separately and then bringing what they had together.SEPT 2019
Into the pressure cooker with Scott our producer with his finger on the temperature dial, never letting the steam off until each song was fully cooked. Individually we had our fears of not measuring up on the day of each performance but by the end of 9 days hard grind with some good food and laughs we managed a great album.AUGUST 2019
Scott Seabright was our chosen producer and engineer. Pre-production involved choosing the tracks, playing them one by one working on structure. New dynamics changes were achieved by shifting verses or choruses, tempos and beats giving each song a sense of freshness and vibrancy. Guide tracks were recorded ready for production and real recording.AUGUST 2019
With 25 original songs and only space for 6 new ones to follow up "Thunder" we called in the help of our Producer and a live audience to choose from our live set which 6 go on. Coffee stood out as unanimous but it doesn't mean it will necessarily make it to the album, will see with Scott the producer.JULY 2019
For around 18 months RnF have been getting together for a full day rehearsals. Always on a Friday from 10am and often we would start with cookies and coffee. By lunch break it was wine and cheese and from that came our 2nd colab song "Avec Toi". It has a French spin: C'est un plaisir de jouer avec toi = It's a pleasure to be playing with you.JUNE 2019
Another great House concert with our regular crowd and some new ones. Our sound are shaping beautiful songs. We now have nearly 20 tracks to play withMAY 2019
This video was a mash up of different people behind the camera then on to different people behind the editing. What we cooked up with these individually great people was a treat for us to watch. Hope you enjoy it too!MARCH 2019
Feb is the band's 1st birthday. One year of growing friendship and creativity. Played the 12th monthly gig to a great crowd and enjoyed every second of it. This year, we will be writing some more as a band. We just started on a new one.FEB 2019
RnF finished the year with their own bang, playing and dancing to welcome 2019. New Zealand always the 1st one welcoming each new year!DEC 2018
Sometimes, you have to do things the wrong way around twice ;) Having another film maker in house again, it would be a crime not to shoot something again. Decided to shoot the footage for "Nothing to preach" before recording it.NOV 2018
RnF are having a 5 week break from playing live and are hitting the studio instead, starting with the new song they wrote together a few months back. Tracked it quite quickly but lots of work has to be done in the box. Playing it live has helped to create a direction for what they wanted to hear. Chris, the sound engineer, did a little production work on it and added touches that will give a fresh direction to live playing.OCT 2018
Sometimes, you have to do things the wrong way around. Having a film maker in house for a while, it would be a crime not to shoot something other than gigs. Decided to shoot the footage for "Thunder" before recording the song itselfSEPT 2018
RnF wrote their 1st song together as a band. Brigitte came up with the music, Nic with the lyrics, Richard with a cool bass line and Grant is strong tribal beat. It's called Thunder. Let's see how it develops over the next few months.AUG 2018
The beauty to play at sunset over the ocean never ceases to amaze us.AUG 2018
Hibernating by the fire, love creating music in winter. Gig number 5, finetuning and still experimenting with who plays what and how to make each song better and better.JULY 2018
Rocks n Flowers keep on rocking on every month at sunset, perfecting the songs they started with and adding new ones to their repertoire. They already have 20 songs to play with cool variations, since each one reflects the style of their respective writers.JUNE 2018
Rocks n Flowers kicked off their 1st performance in a venue like no other, their home base in Tutukaka, starting at sunset, as it is the last place to see the sun each evening. They gave themselves the challenge of a year of monthly House concerts for them to fine tune their original music.APRIL 2018
Music is growing and developing, been exploring each other's songs and see what each can bring to the table to enhance those pretty melodies and meaningful or quirky lyrics. It is when Grant (drummer aka name finder extraordinaire) proposes to call this little unit Rocks n Flowers. No objection, everyone loves it..FEB 2018
The flowers meet another flower, Kat and invited her to join the band, adding her creativity to the mix.DEC 2017
All started when 2 rocks and 2 flowers decided to collaborate and mix their respective sounds. They get to know each other musically. The chemistry is there, the creativity is there, the complimentary skills are there. Feels good :)NOV 2017
3 years of musical collaboration, a lifetime passion for music
Two gals two guys all original melody makers or story tellers...
A mix of cultures creates an eclectic rock pop dance sound, best described as "positively melancholic rock with meaningful lyrics and rocks blues trans tunes. They are often being compared to Fleetwood Mac but they beleive it's only a look similarity.
RnF create a buzz in their own space by holding House concerts on the top of their hill surrounded by the big blue. They recently turned their space in a recording studio and recorded their first album with the influence of music producer Scott Seabright. This year, RnF has played 2 festivals and is ready to go further afield.
