Shona Laing has always had an ambiguous, sometimes turbulent relationship with the music industry (who hasn't).
Integrity and respect have always been non-negotiable for Shona. She is an intelligent and hugely talented singer/songwriter who surfaced as a result of extensive television exposure on the show New Faces in 1972 with her song 1905 (dedicated to Henry Fonda). While still a teenager she collected gold discs, Rata Awards and represented NZ (twice) in the Tokyo World Song Festival before relocating to the UK where, amongst other things, she was a member of Manfred Mann's Earth Band.
Following her return to New Zealand she released a number of albums for both Pagan and Sony, as well as extensively touring Australia (Glad I'm Not A Kennedy was a number nine single there) and the USA where she supported Erasure. Shona has an extensive catalogue of material that not only spans three decades but continues to endure, and endures well. She has currently completed her new album "Pass the Whisper".
Singer/songwriter Monique Rhodes was born in New Zealand. She left the Land of the Long White Cloud more than a decade ago to take on the world and pursue a musical career overseas. Currently based in France, Monique is also quickly becoming a rising star of music in New Zealand.
Monique is classically trained and has gone from violinist to rocker. Her acoustic rock sound has been described as a cross between Grammy award winning artist Sheryl Crow and Canadian songstress Sarah McLachlan but, in reality, she is in a league of her own. Her intimate and positively charged performances often deeply move members of her audiences and her desire for complete connection with her audiences create a masterful and exhilarating experience.
