have been your main musical influences ?
Armatrading, Kate Bush, Ruia Aperahama, Che Fu, Radiohead, Annie Crummer,
Paul Ubana Jones, BjÖrk, Ngoi Pewhairangi, Dave Dobbyn, Stevie Wonder,
Joni Mitchell, Rickie-Lee Jones, Whirimako Black, Dark Tower , Emma Paki.I
could go on and on! My Mum and Dad, too - they taught me about harmony,
and they both love music.
greatest musical moment?
far (because the best is yet to come, heh heh..) my greatest musical moment
has been winning a K.Yairi guitar in a singer-songwriter competition in
Auckland . It was second prize, but it could have been 99 th for all I
cared.I was just blown away that this beautiful instrument was suddenly
mine. I walked round for the rest of the night literally unable to say
anything else except 'I won a guitar.I won a guitar.' I still play it
as my main guitar 4 years later and I think I will do so for the next
40; it does me proud. (Now that I think about it, this is actually one
of my best life moments).
thoughts about the Kapiti Live Music Club?
has so got it goin' on. I'm really looking forward to meeting and working
with some of the great talents we have out here. Kia kaha, kia maia, kia
