Hip-hop sensation Scribe dominates the winners’ list collecting seven awards while emerging talent Brooke Fraser and singing sensation Hayley Westenra both take out two Tuis.

Dimmer, the creation of former Straightjacket Fits front man Shayne Carter, also picks up two top awards.

With Scribe’s tour-de-force debut album The Crusader, the hip-hop superstar wins Playstation 2 Album of the Year, L&P Best Urban / Hip Hop Album and Best Male Solo Artist. His debut single, Stand Up, is awarded Single of the Year while Not Many – The Remix! – co-written with P-Money, Con Psy and Savage – wins its authors the award for Songwriter of the Year.

Scribe also wins the Vodafone People’s Choice Award – voted on by New Zealanders around the country.

Chris Graham’s video for Stand Up earns both him and Scribe Tuis in the C4 Best Music Video Award.

Melodic pop artist and awards rookie Brooke Fraser takes out the Export Gold Breakthrough Artist of the Year title together with Best Female Solo Artist following her triple platinum debut album What To Do With Daylight.

Hayley Westenra’s outstanding success in the UK, Asia, and Australasia is recognised with an International Achievement Award. Hayley’s album Pure wins Highest Selling NZ Album having sold more than 1.5 million copies world-wide.


The distinctive dark tones of You’ve Got To Hear The Music have won Shayne Carter’s Dimmer the Export Gold Best Group and Channel Z Best Rock Album awards.

Recording Industry Association of New Zealand (RIANZ) music awards spokesperson Adam Holt says the 2004 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards winners strongly reflect the quality and depth of local music.

“Increasing numbers of young local talent are now achieving success both here and internationally and that means the future of New Zealand music is in great shape.

“It’s also fantastic to see that artists are excelling across a number of different genres. Local musicians are producing great music that caters to the tastes of all New Zealanders.”

Salmonella Dub continues to produce winning beats picking up the Best Dance / Electonica Album for One Drop East. The group won the same award last year for Outside the Dub Plates.

The award for the Highest Selling New Zealand Single goes to pop idol Ben Lummis for They Can’t Take That Away and Goldenhorse takes out Airplay Record of the Year with its single Maybe Tomorrow.

In a poignant moment during the celebrations the late Shaun Joyce (former Director of Marketing and Buying at Sounds Music) posthumously received the Lifetime Achievement Award from RIANZ president Michael Glading.

In his tribute Mr Glading described Shaun as a person who championed artists saying many, both local and international, owed their music triumphs in New Zealand to Shaun.

The 2004 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards are presented by RIANZ and are in their 39th year.
