Introducing "The Beautiful Dreamers" from Catherine Tunks

Introducing "The Beautiful Dreamers" from Catherine Tunks.
(Māori singer - Te Whānau-A Apanui/Whakatohea)

Catherine Tunks is an Aotearoa singer/songwriter/musician, a Waiata Māori music awards nominee and this is Part One of her 3 part international project. She has travelled the globe and released 2 acclaimed albums but this “The Beautiful Dreamers” E.P. is is truly personal, full of heart and raw emotion.

Although Catherine Tunks is well known as her Black Sand Diva persona, she is gently leaving this behind with the "The Beautiful Dreamers" releases to create and explore new musical boundaries. As well as gracing the stages at an impressive list of international festivals, she is always in the process of exciting collaborative projects, just like this.

In these releases she is connecting deeper into her heritage and country church upbringing. Drawing on her Irish and NZ Māori lineage gives her that undeniable South Pacific groove and now, she weaves in the new threads of Americana sound.

Forming a songwriting partnership with German musician Thomas Koenig (Solid Brew) after a chance meeting at Auckland’s Waiheke Jazz Festival in 2015, was the beginning of this cross cultural music exchange which will continue into 2017 with a NZ and German Tour. (MORE)

Full of intimate stories from her life, “The Beautiful Dreamers” E.P. is here.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach.

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:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. 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>>
