Blue Smoke Records is proud to present the songbook of New Zealand’s first recording pop star, and the music that influenced her.

In 1949, Pixie Williams gave voice to one of the most enduring popular melodies of the twentieth century – ‘Blue Smoke’.

When Pixie moved from Mohaka to Wellington she set her foot on the path to a triple-platinum hit that made her a household name. This was New Zealand’s first wholly made recording, but it was a hit overseas too, with covers by a host of international stars including Dean Martin.

Pixie was inducted into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame in 2019, alongside composer Ruru Karaitiana and musician Jim Carter. The three were recognised as Aotearoa’s most formative musical figures for the wartime song that started New Zealand’s recording industry.

Join music director Riki Gooch and his band with singers Kirsten Te Rito, Rachel Fraser and Lisa Tomlins as they bring Pixie’s music to life.
