NZ On Air Critic’s Choice showcase line up revealed

NZ On Air Critic’s Choice showcase line up revealed

The 2015 line-up for the NZ On Air Critics’ Choice Prize as part of Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards has been announced with three up-and-coming bands selected to perform at the showcase.

First up in this year’s line-up is Boycrush, the moniker of songwriter and producer Alistair Deverick. An accomplished drummer, his collection of demos led to an invitation to attend the respected Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid to launch his solo career. Boycrush has released a variety of tracks with the latest EP Girls On Top.

New Gum Sarn joins the line-up with a growing fan base following the release of debut album New Gold Mountain. The group comprises Sophia Lawler-Dormer, Durham Fenwick, Dave Weir and Oscar Dowling and is inspired by the likes of Neil Young, Talk Talk and Television.

Auckland 3-piece Bespin completes the line-up of the talented artists ready to take their music to the world. Alex Freer, Jonathan Lee and Joel Beeby played the 2015 Laneway Festival and they will be releasing their debut EP soon.

Established in 2010, the Critics’ Choice Prize recognises up-and-coming artists and potential future Tui recipients.

The three 2015 contenders perform a live showcase at The Kings Arms in Auckland on November 5 followed immediately by the announcement of the recipient of the Critic’s Choice prize. Tickets are available for purchase at the door of the Kings Arms for just $10.

The 50th annual Recorded Music NZ Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards ceremony will be held at Auckland’s Vector Arena on Thursday 19 November.
