Celebrate New Zealand Music throughout May with Christchurch City Libraries, CHART, RDU and live gigs.

Martin Phillips – The Chills
With early releases via the legendary NZ label Flying Nun, The Chills produced a number of critically acclaimed records such as the single “Pink Frost” (their first hit) from the album Kaleidoscope World and the LP Brave Words. Martin has a single-minded determination to take quality original NZ-sounding, melodic rock music global. His drive stems from the punk rock ethics of his musical awakening and from the subsequent proximity to people like Chris Knox who drove home how crucial it was to always deliver music with intensity and conviction. The Chills will be releasing the new album Silver Bullets in 2015.

Singer/ songwriter Kaye Woodward along with fellow Bats members Paul Kean and Malcolm Grant have punctuated their career releasing 2 Eps and the critically acclaimed effervescent Bounce Around album. They currently have a new album worth of material recorded and will offer up a few of these along with a selection from their repertoire.

The Swan Sisters
Amiria Grenell and Amy Grace perform a delicate blend of music styles – alt folk with beautiful harmonies, a touch of country, a bit of dreamy pop and a dash of swingin’ blues encapsulating their friendship and love of storytelling.
