Gin Wigmore is a distinctive singer/songwriter, whose sound is driven by a startling voice and outstandingly honest songs; her delivery has been succinctly described by a critic as ‘whiskey and dry’ and her self-penned songs provide a refreshing new take on life as a ’20-something’ and yet relate across the generations.
Geographically, Gin tracks from Auckland to Buenos Aires to Sydney. Vocally she runs from Macy Gray to Blondie to Edith Piaf.
Gin has just recorded her brilliant debut album, Holy Smoke, in Hollywood’s famed Capitol Studios. and once you’ve heard Gin sing, you won’t forget the name
Gin created Holy Smoke with Mike Elizondo as her producer [Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor, Eminem, Nelly Furtado, Maroon 5] and with The Cardinals as her backing band [as in the very same Cardinals from Ryan Adams & The Cardinals].
Cardinals’ guitarist Neal Casal has described Gin as “unquestionably one of the most exciting new artists to emerge in many years. Her voice is raw and emotional, with phrasing far beyond her years. Her debut record is a fully realised statement of intent, promising a great career ahead.”
