Courtney Hate

Self-described Space Princess rockers, Courtney Hate’s sound swirls and enchants. After forming in 2014 in a Green Bay High School year 11 music class, they became, within months, the Smokefree Rockquest’s National People’s Choice winners and then National Finalists in 2015.

They’ve been actively gigging around Auckland (and beyond) ever since - from the all-ages scene at the Old Folks Association, to Golden Dawn with Miss June, bFm’s Fancy New Band showcase, Chronophonium, Others Way festival, with Mermaidens and HEX in Wellington, performances at the Auckland Town Hall and at the last APRA Silver Scroll awards.

Courtney Hate are Xanthe Brookes (drums), Ruby Colwell (guitar), Jami Kerrigan (voice/synth), and Marieke van Orsoy de Flines (bass/voice).
