Last year, after tip-toeing around the idea of a solo project like this one for a while, an experiment with a four-track recorder led Shaun Blackwell to strike the match that would ignite Hemi Hemingway and result in 'The Lonely Hunter' EP. A glittering six-track ode to sixties pop, it takes its cues from both classic and contemporary influences, and embraces the lovesickness of the aforementioned era, subtly shifting focus on to modern relationships, masculinity, and his own roots as a New Zealander.

Blackwell's indigenous heritage profoundly informs 'The Lonely Hunter' throughout - from the musical ideas he explores to the lilt of his vocals. His interest in reading also played a large role in the cstruction of 'The Lonely Hunter', helping Hemingway to explore his lyrical ideas from broader points of view.

In Dec 2021, Hemingway returned to Aotearoa to finish his debut album. With a tour of NZ in March 2022 and an album on the way, what began as a simple experiment looks set to become his creative lifeblood.
