Ma9Na started playing drums at 13 years and was sneaking into New Zealand venues watching bands setup and soundcheck.
Living in Tasmania, a small island on the southern tip of Australia which he fondly calls 'the Arts end of the World', is no deterrent. With technology and social platforms, he says the opportunities for sharing his creations are endless.
Drumming will continue to be his first love, but he's always had a secret passion for writing, recording, and producing his own original songs.
Nowadays, he has a revamped home studio where everything is at his fingertips. Manaena is also a closet bass player, a born-again guitarist and he says he plays keyboard like a one-finger typist. It's a good thing that doesn't stop him!
