I love fresh new music, and if there's a gorgeous face that goes along with it, how could it get any better? Blogs have been hyping New Zealand's Gin Wigmore for a couple of years now, but I had never listened to her music until a few weeks back and I'm in luuuurve. Her genre is …..? I can't even tell you. Pop? Rock 'n roll? Throwback?
She's like a darker, quirkier, cooler, sassier, platinum, Kiwi version of Amy Winehouse. You could compare her sound on ballads to Mazzy Star's angelic lead singer Hope Sandoval, Nancy Sinatra or even Roy Orbison. To most though, she sounds like a much more talented (and tattooed) Duffy. Gin's music is a complete breath of fresh air and I can't wait to hear more of it.
On stage, she is just a big freakin' ball of energy! Her top notch performances of "Black Sheep" and "Man Like That" on Jimmy Kimmel from a few weeks back were seriously awesome - check them out here. Her 4-song ep Man Like That is the only thing keeping our ears satisfied in the US until her Motown debut album Gravel & Wine hits stores in March.
All in all, girl's got a cool name, a catchy, great sound, and a gorgeous face. Gin Wigmore is an artist to keep watching hardcore in 2013!
