Album Review

Already a star in her native New Zealand, Gin Wigmore makes her global debut with the release of Holy Smoke, an album that shoots to bridge the gap between neo-soul and rock & roll. On paper, Wigmore certainly has the makings of a popular artist; she’s blonde, brazen, and named after a liquor, even if her raspy alto sounds more whiskey-soaked than gin-splashed. She also surrounds herself with some of the industry’s most competent characters, from former Ryan Adams cohorts the Cardinals (who perform on every track here) to veteran producer Mike Elizondo. The result is an album that finds some middle ground between Wigmore's neo-soul croon and the Cardinals' country-rock, with songs like "One Last Look" featuring the best of both camps.

Going 4 a smoke!

Quite possibly the best Kiwi artist I've come across to date! Nice work Gin

Stunning album! Kiwis going global!

Seriously awesome album! Saw her live at the good ole Coroglen Tavern the night before new years and havve been listening to her album since then :) Stoked to hear her on the radio whilst in Denmark last week! Go Gin!
