Auckland Live presents Music in the Square.
It wouldn’t be Auckland Live Summer in the Square without a sensational music line-up, and this summer is no exception. Music-man extraordinaire, Matthew Crawley has gone and blown us all out of the water with an eclectic range of musical acts to enjoy in Aotea Square. If you’re a music nerd or you simply love a cool beverage in the sun while the sweet sounds of live music sizzle in the background, come on down to the Square and make the most of this free music programme. It’s going to be a scorcher!
As part of Auckland Live Summer in the Square.
Thursday 30th January
5pm – 6pm Sounds of Summer Live Music – Dianne Swann
Dianne Swann began her career as vocalist and songwriter for her band Everything That Flies, before becoming one of the original members of When the Cats Away, and released a solo song Something Good, which achieved NZ Top 20 chart status and a Silver Scroll nomination. Dianne left WTCA to continue her love of song-writing and moved to London and formed the critically acclaimed band The Julie Dolphin with Brett Adams.
The couple moved back to New Zealand after 13 years in the UK and formed The Bads. In 2018 The Bads were shortlisted for the coveted Taite Music prize, adding to an impressive list of achievements throughout her career including: playing live to 85,000 people, signing to two international labels, recording with Radiohead, having her song ‘Birthday’ chosen as NME single of the week and touring Australia with Tim Finn. Dianne is writing new songs for a solo project, and doing a few stripped back shows. There she goes.
