Wax Chattels:

Wax Chattels are a trio of former jazz students hailing from Auckland, New Zealand. Several years after meeting at the University of Auckland, Amanda Cheng, Peter Ruddell and Tom Leggett formed Wax Chattels and were quickly snatched up by legendary New Zealand record label Flying Nun Records.

With the band releasing their debut, self-titled album in 2018, the Live Delay crew was on the ground to capture their BIGSOUND showcase performance at The Foundry.

Originally the solo home recording project of musician Ian Powne, The Stress of Leisure has grown into a full fledged band since forming in the early 2000s. Over six albums, the group has steadily evolved into its present form of singer/guitarist Powne, singer/keyboardist Pascalle Burton, bassist Jane Elliott and drummer Jessica Moore.
