Gig Information

Guy is an Auckland singer-songwriter who has released 4 solo albums and 2 band albums
with Selon Recliner. In 1990 Guy won the Silver Scroll Award for his third album
“Don’t Take Me For Granted”. The same year he also won the Most Promising Male Vocalist Award. He is now releasing his 5th solo album, “West by North” after returning from 4 years in India and Thailand. He has toured NZ extensively on several occasions with long time friend Derek Lind (who acted as “Recording Reviewer” on “West By North”), as well as supporting a variety of local and international acts over the years.
Recorded at Roundhead Studios, “West By North” exhibits a distinct country feel by way of Glenn Ross Campbell’s captivating pedal steel playing.
Recording and mixing by Jordan Stone, (Neil Finn, Wilco, Passenger, The Datsuns).
Guy and his band will be touring nationwide in May-July to promote the new release.

It’s been a long time ‘between drinks’ for award winning New Zealand musician Derek Lind. 13 years after recording his last album, '12 Good Hours of Daylight', comes his emotional and intimate new acoustic double-album, SOLO – released on the second anniversary of his wife’s passing. Two years ago Lind was about to start recording his seventh album when his wife of 35 years suddenly died. The music, the writing and the painting all took a back-seat for a while.

After some coaxing and cajoling from his friends, Derek finally caved into their suggestion to try a KICKSTARTER crowd-funding campaign to help finance the production of a new album. You can read more about the success of Derek's Kickstarter campaign here.

Derek Lind’s new release, SOLO features lyrically rich storytelling, set to live acoustic arrangements that together help recreate emotional touch-points. Listeners will find moments of empathy and commonality as they traverse the twin discs that make up SOLO.
