Gin Wigmore

 
 

Gin Wigmore is a New Zealand born singer-songwriter known for her emotional, intelligent, pop-rock style. Gin's big break in the music industry came when she became the youngest and first unsigned artist to win the Grand Prize in the US-based International Songwriting Competition in 2004. Besting 11,000 entries from 77 countries to take home the Grand Prize brought her a record deal with Universal Australia, and she has since gone on to release three full-length albums – Holy Smoke (2009), Gravel & Wine (2011), and Blood to Bone (2015) - all of which have topped the New Zealand Albums Chart.
 

The distinctiveness of Gin's voice and her captivating songwriting (with influences ranging from Neil Young, David Gray and Jeff Buckley through Edith Piaf and de la Soul) have won her international acclaim. Additionally, in recent years Gin's music has been featured in such major television programs as Grey's Anatomy and ABC's Revenge, and in major television ads such as a James Bond Skyfall tie-in spot from Heineken. In September of 2016, Gin announced that her fourth full length album was set to be released in the coming months.
