The New Zealand Music Hall of Fame pays tribute to those musicians who have had a significant impact on New Zealand life and culture through music.  APRA (Australasian Performing Right Association) is proud to announce that Dave Dobbyn will be inducted into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame at the 2013 APRA Silver Scroll Awards.

“Music brings us together, in both our everyday lives as well as at times of special celebration and commemoration.  Dave Dobbyn’s music is very much at the heart of New Zealand’s national soundtrack, and it is APRA’s privilege to honour him by welcoming him into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame” says Anthony Healey, Director NZ Operations APRA|AMCOS.

Through his career of nearly 40 years, Dobbyn’s music has made its way into virtually every New Zealand home and heart, his songs now woven into the fabric of New Zealand life and culture.  Dave Dobbyn will be inducted into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame as a part of the 2013 APRA Silver Scroll Awards.  The night will mark a return for Dave, who has been awarded the APRA Silver Scroll Award three times in his career – the most of any songwriter in the award’s 47 year history.

“Dave Dobbyn’s songs can be many things: devotional, angry, playful… but most of all they’re generous and brave. They can be whispered stories of hope and longing, or anthems bellowed by happy drunks along empty streets after the last bus has gone. Often one song can be both those things. Dave’s songs are deep inside every New Zealander. We’re lucky to have him.” says Don McGlashan, APRA New Zealand writer director.

The New Zealand Music Hall of Fame was created in 2007, with inductions shared between APRA and Recorded Music New Zealand. To date the award has paid tribute to Jordan Luck, Johnny Devlin, The Topp Twins, Straitjacket Fits, Hirini Melbourne & Richard Nunns, Ray Columbus & The Invaders, The Fourmyula, Shihad, Hello Sailor, Dragon, Toy Love and Herbs.

The 48th annual APRA Silver Scroll Awards - Tuesday 15th October at Vector Arena.  The event will be streamed live via NZ Herald Online.
