NAVVY Biography

Born and raised in Auckland, Navvy arrived at pop music while studying at university. With a childhood background in classical and musical theatre, it wasn’t a direction she’d ever really expected to head down, but once she stepped outside of her comfort zone, it was transformational.

With joyful melodies, compelling rhythms, and heartfelt declarations, Navvy’s music is a sophisticated-yet-expressive take on synth-pop and vocal electronica. Recalling the emotional art-pop of La Roux and Robyn, her songs – often created in collaboration with the likes of Wells* and Alex Wildwood – capture the red-hot intensity of feelings as they hit in the moment, and the clear-eyed reflection and contemplation of pink sunsets on summer evenings.
