Whistle and Hum nominated for NZ Country Album of the Year

Whistle & Hum

Arghhhhhhhhhhh! I’m so excited. Whistle and Hum has been nominated for NZ Country album of the Year in this years TUI Awards.

I’m absolutely thrilled as it feels like not only a win for me but for half my local town of Wanaka. So many people donated their time to helping bring this album together and it has claimed the title of Wanaka’s 1st 100% locally-made album which is pretty special.

The winner will be announced on May 23rd at the NZ Music Awards in Gore. I’m a little nervous as finalists have been asked to perform and our new baby is due on the 10th. If bub decides to hang out for a bit….well, let’s not go there just yet.
