As you don’t already know, May is New Zealand Music Month.  This is the time of year when New Zealand artists get extra special promotion on the radio and a flurry of shows are held all across the country. 

To celebrate, I have set a blogging goal for the month.  I am going to introduce to you a different Kiwi musician every day in May.  I decided this back in February.  This is why you haven’t seen many music videos as of late. 

I’ll try to keep up with other content as well, especially all my travel adventures. 

Anyway, today’s new artist is Bic Runga.  She is a soulful singer-songwriter from Christchurch.  Her style is suited for endless rotation on 106.1 Magic FM (much like Nickelback on every station here).  Her stuff is okay, but it’s a little sleepy for me.

Her big hit from 1997 is “Sway.”  This is the song that presumably all the girl guitarists here learn early on in their careers.

A second song of hers is “Drive.”  It’s from 2005.
