GIN WIGMORE : SOS

Native New Zealander, now Sydney resident Gin Wigmore is fast becoming a darling of the live scene across Australia, but it's unfortunate that just as she's hitting her strides, artists like Amy Winehouse, Duffy, Gabriella Cilmi and even Paris Wells to a lesser extent are enjoying their moments in the sun. 'Cause vocally, they all rather similar. But fans of John Butler may also get on board with this single, as he plays ukelele on the single (erm, but that's NOT John Butler on the video...). We'll admit it's classy pOp that sounds very familiar, but given radio in Australia hasn't really got behind Amy, Duffy, and Paris (though to be fair, they gave Gabriella a fair shot), it's unlikely Gin will get the exposure needed at radio to really give her the kick along she needs and moreover deserves.
