THE TAITE MUSIC PRIZE 2022: WHAT WENT DOWN?

THE TAITE MUSIC PRIZE 2022: WHAT WENT DOWN?

News

The news is written by a mysterious person. Maybe Wendy Broccoli.


It has been a long time since we could all get together face-to-face to recognise the bounty of musical talent we have in Aotearoa, as well as the people who put a lot of time and work into making it the amazing scene that it is. Thanks to the great people Independent Music New Zealand, we were able to do so, in person, at Q Theatre for a night full of laughs, catch ups, claps and songs (shared over a couple of glasses of wine, perhaps).
With a very rich cohort of talented nominees across all five categories (including two of our very own, Vera Ellen and Reb Fountain for the main prize), there was no doubt that the prizes could go to any of the deserving musicians. So, we sat in an........................ticipation, waiting for the night to unfold.
We were treated to an enchanting two-song performance from Reb Fountain as well as an array of presenters including host Sarah Thompson, Sir Dave Dobbyn, Poppy Reid (editor in chief of Rolling Stone Aus/NZ), Pippa Ryan-Kidd (IMNZ Chairperson), Helaina Keeley (Creative Industries Development Manager), Jo Oliver (CEO of Recorded Music NZ) and journalist Colin Hogg
