Gig Information

Jamie McDell with guest Jenny Mitchell are performing at an intimate evening in Dunedin's Regent Theatre on Friday, 16th of February 2019, starting at 19:30. This is an evening celebrating great NZ artists, enjoying great music and in support of a great charity - Heart Kids NZ (Otago Branch).

Jamie McDell (New Zealand singer / songwriter) has achieved a prolific amount of success for someone 24 years of age. Being signed to EMI at age 16 sparked the beginning of a successful musical journey, making Jamie McDell a household name across the nation. With the release of her debut album ‘Six Strings and a Sailboat’, she went on to achieve Gold album sales, receive three NZ Music Award nominations, winning Best Pop Album of 2013. Her sophomore record ‘Ask Me Anything’ gained global attention, seeing album track ‘Moon Shines Red’ featured on American TV series Pretty Little Liars.

In 2018 Jamie McDell independently released her new record that celebrates her musical roots and the sounds of her upbringing. This new recorded project came together between Auckland, New Zealand and Nashville, Tennessee where she recorded the tracks with Australian award-winner producer Nash Chambers. The record features a hearty cast of country music legends including Kasey Chambers, Bill Chambers and Tami Neilson. It was the music of her childhood that would form the fundamental elements of what excited her about songwriting the most - an honest vocal, lots of acoustic guitar and deep storytelling.

Special guest for the evening is the very talented Jenny Mitchell - Dunedin singer / songwriter (one New Zealand's brightest musical talents). Jenny is a songwriter that blends alt-country, folk, and Americana into her own captivating style. At 19, Jenny Mitchell has won a NZ Gold Guitar Award, MLT Songwriting Award, Southland Entertainer of the Year Award & played to audiences in Sweden, Ireland, Australia & countless shows in NZ. Her debut album, 'The Old Oak,' debuted at number 1 on the NZ Country iTunes Charts, number 2 on the Independent Music NZ Charts & received critical acclaim from around the globe. Her unique style has delighted audiences of all shapes and sizes, from the thousands at the Tamworth Country Music Festival Opening Concert to intimate house concerts in her home region, Southland. A University student by day & a songwriter by night, Jenny's passion for her craft is evident in every performance.

Jamie McDell and Jenny Mitchell collaborated on a song previously. Both artists will be performing independently and together during the show.

This evening will be in support of Heart Kids NZ (Otago Branch) - a charity that supports over 200 Heart Kids clients (children & adults) and their families in Otago. 12 Babies a week are born in NZ with a Congenital Heart Defect (the highest incidence of childhood illnesses in NZ) that very often devastates families. Heart Kids NZ’s mission is to provide lifelong support to all affected by a childhood heart condition or heart disease acquired through childhood.

Heart Kids is here to help at every step of the heart journey – from when a heart condition is diagnosed, through childhood, the teenage years and into adulthood. The practical, emotional and educational support offered by Heart Kids is vital for all those affected, helping individuals and families cope with the day to day challenges of living with a childhood heart condition.
