Foley is the late night conversations, not-so-existential crises & the genuinely unbreakable friendship of 20-somethings Ash Wallace and Gabriel Everett.
Honest to a fault, Foley have quickly picked up a fanbase of young like-minded listeners for their confessions of love, loss and learning. With a sibling like closeness at their core, their transparency with each other and their audience makes for a hilarious, emotionally authentic and carefree relationship that will have you laughing and crying in the same breath.
The pair have developed a strong point of view as commentators of millennial doubt and confusion. They have never shied from laying bare the stark challenge of navigating love and relationships in your 20s, attempting to piece together some sense around the madness.
Their debut EP ‘On My Conscience’, saw huge success across commercial radio and streaming platforms, hitting #10 on the NZ Album Charts and plastered the pair across multiple Spotify playlist covers
Their single ‘Midnight’ was added across all major NZ radio stations, landing the pair their first radio Top 40 chart position, while also becoming the #1 independent song on NZ Radio on both the overall chart and the Pop Top 40 (a feat also achieved with previous single ‘Cola’).
Now gearing up for 2021, Foley have unveiled ‘So Personal’, which was added across-the-board to major radio playlists instantly on release & fan-track ‘Rendezvous’ – setting the stage for their sophomore effort.
Foley have graced New Zealand’s largest New Years festival Rhythm & Vines 3 times, most recently playing a main-stage slot on New Year’s Eve. The pair have also shared the stage with Two Door Cinema Club, Flight Facilities & Crooked Colours at indie fest Spring City and opened for Drax Project on their NZ tour, and Six60’s stadium show in Hamilton early in 2020.
Foley landed a prestigious APRA Silver Scroll Nomination in 2019 for their fourth single ‘Can’t Help The Way’ which also hit #2 on the Official NZ Hot 20 charts.
The pair now have over 5 million streams and have featured across multiple global DSP playlists, including Spotify’s New Music Friday US, UK, Sweden & AU/NZ and Apple Music’s A-List playlists.
Behind the scenes, the duo have formed lasting relationships with producers Josh Fountain (Benee, LEISURE, Paige) and Djeisan Suskov (Mitch James, Matthew Young, LEISURE), as well as frequent collaborators Ambian & Sleo (Lepani, Nico Walters, LA Women), and Josh Naley (Wells*)
