The New Zealand Music Foundation has released a full report from its New Zealand Music Community Wellbeing Survey. Conducted in July this year, the survey is currently the world’s largest per-capita quantitative research project to examine the health and wellbeing of the music community.
Starting tomorrow, both the Official New Zealand Music Charts and IMNZ Charts will include physical and digital sales from Bandcamp – an online community where artists and labels sell their music direct to fans.
Thrash metal band Alien Weaponry (Niel Hammerhead) made New Zealand music history this year when they won both the Smokefreerockquest and Smokefree Pacifica Beats competitions. Now, they’re about to launch an assault on the airwaves with their single ‘Urutaa’.
Two of New Zealand’s favourite singer-songwriters hit Australian shores this Nov/Dec, with an intimate double bill solo tour from east coast to west. Anika Moa (Rodney Hewson) & Mel Parsons will be performing songs new and old, with plenty of laughs in between.
