What is your single about?
Life in Sunshine is a really fun song I wrote at
the beach where I spend most of my time. I love having fun with my friends,
hanging out around the ocean and enjoying the sunshine so those things inspired
this song. I’m hoping it can bring on some sunny weather vibes for this coming
Where did you record this single, and who helped
I recorded the single at York Street studio with
the York Street session band. They have now decided to become my actual band
which I’m really stoked about and look forward to performing with them.
Have you got a video out, if so what is the
theme/story behind the video?
The video for Life in Sunshine really represents
what the song is about. It involves a lot my actual friends all having fun
together, heading off to the beach, and fireworks on the sand dunes showing off
some of Mangawhai’s awesome attributes.
Who’s in your band?
I’ve been solo for a while and have finally got a
band together. At the moment this consists of Scotty Pearson, Stephen Small,
Thomas Healy, and Clint Harris. Awesome people.
Have you got any tours coming up?
Nothing set in stone yet but I am opening for Owl
City on November the 16th and I hope to be doing a few shows around
the place over summer. Check out my facebook page for updates!
Have you got an album coming out soon?
Yes my debut album ‘Six Strings and a Sailboat’
also comes out on November the 16th. I’m really excited to release
some more of my songs right before my favourite season!
