Artist of the Month
We Mavericks: Highland FM’s 100% Home-Grown feature artist
Official Website: www.wemavericks.com.au
The trans-tasman powerhouse duo who pack punches but bring songs to heal your scars. Featuring only a foot-stomping Kiwi girl and an Australian country boy, their music is more than the sum of its parts.
Lindsay Martin’s masterful strings and vocals meet Victoria Vigenser’s magnificent voice, in driving rhythms and a connection you have to hear to believe. With echoes of soulful Americana and Celtic roots in their gritty, evocative material, it’s award-winning musicianship wrapped in a trademark tightness.
Nominated “Best Folk Artist” in the 2022 Aotearoa (NZ) Music Awards, nominated Australian Folk Music Awards “Artists of the Year, Best Duo/Group/Ensemble” 2021 and recipients of the 2020 Troubadour Foundation Award, they’re making a bold mark in both home countries. Now with the duo’s debut “Grief’s a Gardener”, they bring connected and grounding original songs in the sort of show that will leave your tank topped up.
