Expect to be moved says Ria Hall as she prepares to go on the road with Rob Ruha.

The Behind the Lines tour kicks off in New Plymouth in late October and will blend songs from Hall’s, Rule’s of Engagement album and Ruha’s Surveillance set into a two-hour show.

Hall says she’s impressed with Ruha’s transition from kapa haka to the pop world.

She wants her music to move people, rather than be tailored for mainstream success.

" I just want it to be really soulful and I want it to move people. Whether it's moving their body, their spirit, their ngākau, I just want it to be really engaging on that level," Hall says.

The Behind the Lines tour starts in New Plymouth on October 18 and finishes at Q Theatre in Auckland on November 3.
