Music: New Zealand Music Month 1

DebE —  May 4, 2012 — 1 Comment

Hey, it’s May! It’s New Zealand Music Month! You know what that means … It means I ought to showcase a little Kiwi talent right here. I mean, I’d love it if, one day, some other Kiwi artists of whatever variety felt like talking about me (obviously, I’d have to have done something worth talking about … one day), so here I go …

Since it’s taken me a few days to think to actually do this (I’m thinking I’ll aim for one song a day for the month) I’m going to start with a double-post (actually, I was going to put these two versions of this song up together anyway, and the random number generator picked it for today).

“Anchor Me”, originally done by The Mutton Birds, later used to promote Greenpeace. The cover stuck pretty well to the original, and I’m a Ché Fu (second vocalist) and Anika Moa (3rd vocalist) fan anyway, and I appreciate Golden Horse’s Kirsten Morelle’s (1st vocalist) voice, as well.

and the cover …

I hope you will enjoy this ride with some of New Zealand’s most popular artists/songs with me.




Deb E was born in New Zealand’s North Island, but her parents corrected that within months, moving south to Dunedin and staying there. Childhood nights were spent falling asleep to cover versions of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and other Rock ’n Roll classics played by her father’s band, and days were spent dancing to 45 LPs. Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction. Mum of one human & four fur-babies.
