We’re in the home of Homegrown, one of the country’s best music festivals and we’re hunting out the capital city’s best musical talent at the Wellington Smokefreerockquest heats!
In 2009 we found Jesse Shehan at the Wellington heats and he went on to become our first ever soloist to win the National Final. Since winning the ultimate Smokereerockquest title Jesse has been touring extensively including playing international gigs with two of NZ’s music greats, Neil Finn and Dave Dobbyn. Naturally we are keeping a close eye on this year’s solo/duo acts from the region.
In this episode we meet Right Seater and even get a personal introduction to their instruments. We also catch up with KOA who are incorporating Te Reo into their pop music.
