Gin Wigmore Profile

Cheeky, mischievous, and wildly entertaining from the beginning, Gin Wigmore took her smoky voice, a talent for writing songs with emotional heft, and a rambunctious stage presence, to make herself one of New Zealand’s most successful international artists.

Using the phrase to “make herself” rather than “become” is appropriate, because behind the fun-loving, easy-going exterior is a woman who’s worked very hard to achieve multi-platinum selling albums and tours that sell out around the world.
