Gin Wigmore's music career

Inspired by David Gray's album White Ladder, Gin Wigmore wrote her first song, Angelfire, at the age of 14. Two years later her father passed away of cancer and she stopped writing and playing music.
 
She went to Argentina on an exchange program to teach at a kindergarten.
 
On her return to New Zealand, she wrote Hallelujah, a tribute to her father. Her sister entered the song in the US-based International Songwriting Competition in 2004, and she beat 11,000 songwriting aspirants from 77 countries to become the youngest and only unsigned Grand Prize winner in the history of the competition. She also won the Teen category with Angelfire.

Gin Wigmore has gone on to have 5 albums on the NZ Top 40 charts for an incredible 141 weeks and has won:

  • Highest selling single
  • Best pop album
  • Breakthrough artist of the year
  • Highest selling album
  • Best female solo artist awards at the New Zealand Music Awards.
