Vodafone and Parachute Studios present
A NZ Music Month Project Featuring:
Massad, Loui the Zu, Brooke Duff and the Dave Dobbyn songbook

May 3 2013: Vodafone and Parachute Studios are teaming up to bring you a slice of Dobbyn this New Zealand Music Month.

LOYAL will see pop chameleon Massad, Illegal Musik starlet Brooke Duff and hip-hop wunderkind Loui the Zu converge on Parachute Studios to perform sets of their originals. They’ll also be tipping their hat to New Zealand music royalty, reaching into the pages of national treasure Dave Dobbyn’s songbook to rework one of his iconic tunes.

Each artist has chosen their top three Dobbyn songs and it’s up to their fellow Kiwis to decide which song each of them will cover. Music-lovers can cast their vote on Vodafone’s Facebook page – voting is open from now until 5pm Tuesday 7th May. One of the artist’s in-studio sets will be released each week throughout the rest of May.
