PAPER CRANES AND LI'L CHUCK LONGLISTED FOR TAITE MUSIC PRIZE
The 2016 Taite Music Prize longlist of nominees has been announced. As expected it's a wonderfully varied bunch which happens to include Songbroker country folk artists Paper Cranes and Li'l Chuck The One Man Skiffle Machine!
Paper Cranes released their debut album The Road Home on March 20th 2015, receiving high praise from NZ's most discerning reviewers.
Li'l Chuck released his album Blues in Full Swing in February 2015.
His mostly original songs are inspired by the sounds of the era - Blues, Early Jazz, Western Swing, Ragtime etc. and are performed in the style of the street performers from those glory days.
We wish them all the best.
