Last April 13th in Chicago, I had the opportunity to see Gin Wigmore—one of New Zealand’s finest and Vodafone’s Best Female Solo Artist in 2015—give a performance that was undeniably electric.Gin WigmoreThe musician played songs from all three of her studio albums, as well as her latest single “Willing To Die.” Gin’s distinctive vocals were filled with genuine soul & endless passion, making each song unique in its own right. The feverishly compelling drum solos of “Written In The Water,” & “Man Like That”—which were played back-to-back—had us dancing in ways we never knew were possible.Gin WigmoreEach of the skilled musicians that backed her brought their own aesthetic to the table. A photo barely serves as justice for such a performance, but hopefully these will convey some semblance of Gin’s brilliance.Gin WigmoreGin Wigmore will be supporting Matthew Santos on the “Willing To Die Tour” through May 5th.
