Derek Lind Profile

When Auckland artist and singer-songwriter Derek Lind’s wife died unexpectedly in 2013, his world was shattered. The couple had been married for 35 years; Ra was the mother of their three children, a grandmother and Lind’s supportive companion. Lind had already cut back on releasing albums – his previous release 12 Good Hours of Daylight had been 11 years earlier – but he was preparing another when Ra passed on.

Understandably, it seemed that album might never come out, but in 2015 – thanks to a Kickstarter campaign, and the emotional support of family and friends – Lind released the remarkable and poignantly titled double CD Solo.
