In Swings Anika

In Swings Anika


From releasing her most critically acclaimed album yet, Anika Moa will be performing throughout Aotearoa this December.
  
In Swings The Tide is Anika’s latest release which brings a country flavour to her pop sensibilities and is her first ever self-produced album. The albums’ first single “Dreams in My Head” is currently the number one New Zealand track on radio and is a testament to Anika’s undeniable song writing and vocal talents.
  
After rave reviews and a huge audience response from her recent support of Ryan Adams, Anika knows how to woo and capture a crowd. Her live shows are a myriad of beautiful melodies and amazing musicianship  - seeing Anika live is where she oozes her unique character. Joining her on stage is the incredible talent of Nick Gaffney on drums and Chip Matthews on bass.
  
Anika will be supported by the folk talents of singer songwriter Age Pryor.  Age Pryor, well known for his contribution to Fly My Pretties has just released his third solo album Shanks Pony, where single “I Don’t Want” was on the hit movie Eagle vs Shark.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>

Howard Davis: Get It On, Bang A Gong, Pt I

Several readers have recently inquired about the significance of the image that accompanies my by-line. While the man-bun is long gone, I still incorporate the sound of the gong in my Kundalini Yoga classes. More>>
