About Free Fall Rock
Free Fall Rock was formed in 2014 and morphed into a four piece rock band consisting of Tana Tapri (lead vocals) Afzer Zameer (drums) Keith McGlade (bass) and Stefan Doll (guitar).
Each of the band members are looking back on years of successfully playing rock music in New Zealand and overseas. In 2016 Tana Tapri and Keith joined Free Fall Rock, replacing Andrew Hight on the lead vocals and bass. ... read more
We had a great gig in Hamilton as part of the Rocktober concert playing along such talented bands as the Ellerly Daines Trio, fantastic. You see a short clip of the song that gave our band its name: Freefall to Freedom. (expired link)
Every song has a story to tell, so this one was written after our house was destroyed by an earthquake and we decided cut all strings and move out of the earthquake zones. Leaving friends behind was not easy, so the song is about a mix of sadness, uncertainty and excitement that comes with a move and starting something new. On the road up north. Here the lyrics:
Freefall to Freedom
Hanging in a safety net strings are holding and connect
To people, places, work and play, predictable - `til yesterday
Shattered earth, shattered life, snapping strings leaves fear to strive
The city’s gone, the rubbles to stay, uncertainty - since yesterday
Uncertainty - since yesterday
Freefall, freefall, freefall to freedom
Cutting loose a few more strings, taking memories, selling things
Leaving the place you know behind, relationships are redefined
Feeling stripped right to the bone, vulnerable and alone
Relying now on what’s inside, awakening senses to survive
Awakening senses to survive
Sad to leave, keen to move, feeling light, right in the groove
White canvas waiting to be filled; new strings are going to be built
Looking far, looking up, sipping from a coffee cup
Freefall from old to new, heading past Putaruru
Heading past Putaruru

Free Fall Rock had a great show. It's been the first time with Tana Tapri on the lead vocals and people loved her. We had a fantastic audience who went along with our different styles of original rock music.
Here the link to the video of our song Kind Words.
I will upload a few more video clips once they are ready. We’d love to get your comments and feedback.

We have our debut show in our new line up on 23 July in Hamilton, New Zealand. Those who can make it will hear experienced rockers performing original songs. This is also the first time of collaborating with established vocalist Tana Tapri who is lending her strong raspy voice to complement what Free Fall Rock is standing for: raw emotions, energy and a fun night out. Tell everyone, FREE event.Read more
Free Fall Rock is going great with our 2 new members Tana and Rod. We are busy practicing new songs and a cold shed (we have winter in New Zealand) cannot hold us back. Tana brings her raspy rock voice and award winning Tapri songs and we are getting right into it adding 2 more songs every week. You can check out some of them here on NumberOneMusic, just search Tana Tapri.
We are really exited with this new line up and it seems N1M listeners love both, the old Free Fall songs and Tapri songs. For weeks the 6 songs we have together on N1M are taking out the first 6 places in the New Zealand rock charts!
As a band we are getting tight and the songs are going to be slick performances. We can't wait to take them to the first show in this new line up. Hopefully we can share soon some photos or video footage, as I know most of you are not in New Zealand to make it to a show.
Until then, take care
