Artists

 


Awesome things happen when you keep taking positive steps in one direction. Others join in when they see you are comitted, then things really get rolling and the momentum carries you forward.

We are blessed to have the support of great artists. Some statesmen of New Zealand music, others on their way, and more working to emerge.

A good mix for a new record company, itself working to emerge;


Chris Parfitt

Chris Live As lead singer for the High Revving Tongues, Chris Parfitt had a huge hit here in New Zealand, with "Rain and Tears" in 1969. He's played a lot of gigs and written some beautiful songs, since then; and his new album "Beyond The Blue Wall" showcaes his many talents.

A professional singer since he started in Eldred Stebbing's basement, way back in the sixties, Chris' vocal talents are at their finest on the new album, and his multi instumental abilities are everywhere.

Beyond The Blue Wall, showcases excellent song writing in a work we think is exceptional. The songs on it fit beautifully with each other to create a listening experience both harmonious and uplifting.......this album will have you singing along for sure.
