There’s something refreshing about Gin Wigmore’s stage show. Looking slightly grungy and unashamed to tell the crowd to hush-down, the New Zealand-born Wigmore’s voice surprises with its earthy, Macy Gray-like tone. We saw her play to a packed house at the Supper Club in Sydney, and she captivated the room with her unique sound. But it’s the construction of her songs that shines through: they’re touching, emotive and beautiful. Hallelujah, honouring her father’s life (and winner of the US-based International Songwriting Competition) is an particularly stunning song. But she really is the complete package. And, with her debut EP out on August 4th, is certainly one to keep an ear out for.
