The Latest From Moana...
TONIGHT - Gig Alert! (5 Oct)
I am so thrilled to be performing tonite at IKA (3 Mt Eden Rd) before the wonderful, talented Don McGlashan - all to help fundraise for the TPPA court case. Fine food, great company and I do promise you, a special evening of lovely music. There are only 10 seats left - so don't delay, ring them on 09-309 3740. You won't regret it.
APRA Maioha Awards (16 Sep)
Really looking forward to Thursday night. Honoured to have Upokohue as a finalist in this years APRA awards, alongside two other great songs. Maioha is all about Te Reo AND quality songwriting so it doesn't matter how many albums you sell (or don't!) or how famous are you (or aren't!) - there's no hype. Hanging with a bunch of songwriters is always good for the creative juices!
Waiata Maori Music Awards (9 Sep)
Moana & the Tribe are finalists in two categories at this years Waiata Māori Music Awards. The first is for Best Video (Whole Worlds Watching) and the 2nd is for Urban Roots Album of the Year (RIMA). Unfortunately unable to attend due to an injury but so thrilled to be considered. Good luck to all the finalists.
