Bic Runga Profile

Amanda Mills
26 May 2013

Bic Runga is one of New Zealand’s most lauded artists, a singer-songwriter with a natural flair for words and melody, and a voice that defies age or current musical fashions.

With her four studio albums of singer-songwriter pop, Runga has straddled the line between auteur and commercially successful pop star well. She is part of New Zealand’s music establishment, one of our highest-selling artists, and her incarnation as part of the alt-pop/indie Opossom has added a new string to her bow.
