The Vodafone NZ Music Awards were celebrated last night in Auckland. Congratulations to our MMF artists Marlon Williams (Best Solo Artist and Album of the Year), Alien Weaponry (Best Rock Artist), and Chores (Best Electronic Artist)
Yesterday Auckland City of Music (ACOM) celebrates the launch of its strategy for Auckland as a member of the UNESCO Creative City Network as a designated City of Music. We are proud to have achieved this recognition for our city and delighted to share with you the benefits this status will bring to Auckland residents, New Zealanders and international visitors.
Kiwi thrash metal band Alien Weaponry are embarking on their first ever Australasian tour. The trio from Waipu, Northland will bring their unique sound of thrash metal and Te Reo Māori to six centres in New Zealand and another six in Australia throughout March next year.
Over the last five years, the New Zealand Music Foundation has invested $300k in 66 projects, with 42 partners, from Whangarei to Invercargill, all using the power of music to change the lives of over 60,000 New Zealanders in need. Now the charity is rebranding to MusicHelps, a name that is more direct, more impactful and speaks to the heart of the not-for-profit’s core purpose.
Indie-folk artist Mel Parsons has revealed another song from her highly-anticipated, upcoming third album GLASS HEART. A break-up song that cuts through with hard-hitting lyrics, but deceptive sonic simplicity, ‘Just ‘Cause You Don’t Want Me’ showcases the depth and breadth of Parsons’ songwriting prowess.
Tempist Fujit are bringing original music back to where it all began with the release of their Debut Album in their home town of Waipu. After many late night sessions in the studio and mixing suite the time has finally come to catch all that studio glory in one dynamic production package.
