Terry’s Songwriters Show won Best Music Programme in the Access/Ethnic Radio category at the New Zealand Radio Awards 2007. It’s a weekly programme hosted by Terry Shore – who is a singer/song-writer himself. Every week Terry showcases local singer/song-writers who play in open mic nights around Wellington. Terry invites various singer/song-writers on to his show to showcase their original musical talent. It is a show designed for unknowns who have yet to be discovered.
And this week, it was Skedæddle. Listen in or download here:
Big thanks to Terry Shore today. Just had my first radio interview on Wellington Access Radio. Apparently he’s been doing it for a while now. Our paths crossed at an open mic night at the Welsh Dragon Bar. A singer songwriter himself, Terry has a very unique and original style to his music. If you get a chance, check him out at Bandcamp. The programme, which features recordings and live tracks will be aired on Saturday 24th of March 2018.
Alex Moffat is a Wellington singer songwriter who creates memorable little ditties in the mold of The Counting Crows, Elvis Costello and their ilk. More than happy to accompany him on bass guitar recently at the New Town Festival, here in Wellington. Over 80,000 people attended. We were the last act on the Emmet Street stage.
Thanks to everyone involved with the “Sneak Peek” at The Karori Event centre. Some good local talent to be heard in this new venue. Almost complete, funds are still being raised for what will eventually, i’m sure be a valuable asset for wider Karori community. It really is a great space. Can’t wait to see what kind of things will eventually utilize this space. Hopefully, they ask me back.
Karori Event Centre is a new facility funded partially by the Wellington Council and public donations to provide a community venue for functions, events and other purposes. I will be playing a few songs alongside a host of other entertainers at a sneak peek event. See details below.
My gratitude goes out to Glenn Kilmister and Pete Bigley for helping me out with Skedæddle while i was in Napier. Glenn has since formed his own band called Rope Tin, whom I had the pleasure of playing bass guitar with for a while. Pete Bigley, who’s mercurial rhythms on congas and occasional drums captivated all-comers, was last seen hanging around an old Fender Princeton. Bit of a dark horse is our Pete.
Good to see my old mates Rope Tin getting some good gigs. Alongside Napier’s own Bus Crash they will supporting The Feelers @ The Cabana on January 12th 2018. More details here > Rock on brothers.
