Elton John has just recently had two pretty epic guests on his Apple Music show Rocket Hour.

The guests are well-established Kiwi artists Matiu Walters (Six60) and Benee - and they joined Elton on a special episode dedicated solely to Kiwi music.

The show will air this Sunday on Apple Music and in it, Elton gushes over both Matiu and Benee's talents, describing Benee as "an amazing young artist" and Six60 as a "wonderful band that I am crazy about!".

The show sees the three talented musicans delve into what Kiwis influenced them to play and some of their favourite local tracks including Split Enz, Th' Dudes, Aldous Harding, Lorde and Fat Freddy's Drop.  

How awesome!
