About this artist...

Decade(s) active:

We say:

Coming out of the creative melting pot that is Wellington, a breath of fresh air emerges on it’s infamous winds and one way streets… We are GUIDANCE, a pop-ternative band with big aspirations and an eclectic sound. Our music fuses elements of rap, pop, soul, funk and electronica, mixed together with a healthy dollop of peace, love and positive change…

    "In this episode from a series for secondary school music students, James Reid (from The Feelers) and his brother Donald (a singer-songwriter who has co-written several Feelers songs) recall their school days when music making was frowned on by guidance counsellors rather than encouraged by projects like this one. Armed with acoustic guitars and a piano, they play excerpts from four songs (‘Communicate’, ‘We Raised Hell’, ‘Fishing For Lisa’ and ‘Unleash the Fury’) and discuss their philosophy of songwriting which is “all about being in the moment”."

    "Three-piece alt-rockers Decortica arrived, as the title suggests, looking to make a statement with 2008 debut album, A New Aesthetic. Recorded in Raglan under the guidance of esteemed producer David Holmes (Jakob, Battle Circus and Gramsci), the post-grunge album has been described as a "bold proclamation" aimed at "embracing the ideals of dynamism and questioning dated concepts". Two of its singles 'Peace May Come' and 'Macchina' were staples in music channel video rotations throughout the latter half of 2008." (NZ On Screen summary)

    "The self-proclaimed saviours of fun, Rubicon released their debut album Primary in 2002, getting the "double thumbs up" from Fur Patrol's Julia Deans who described its "dirty rock 'n' roll attitude as definitely worth a listen". The Auckland-trio underwent a makeover in 2004, when two members famously resigned via an email sent to lead singer Paul Reid. Two new members and a second album, recorded in Hollywood, soon followed under the guidance of producer, Bruce Witkin (of Foo Fighters fame)." (NZ On Screen summary)
