FEATURED ARTIST / EVENT
Boh Runga’s solo album debut Right Here unleashed the NZ pop chanteuse’s formidable collection of pop rock gems. Strongly reflective of her time spent transplanted to a life in Silver Lake, LA, the album tells tales of love, loss and life.
After carving a hugely successful career fronting her chart-topping band Stellar, Boh now follows her sister Bic in going out under her own name. And while there are wide stylistic differences between the sound of the two Rungas, they share a talent for creating passionate songs.
Recorded over six months in the Hollywood studio of producer Marshall Altman, Right Here has already been warmly received on its recent New Zealand release. The NZ Herald gave the album four stars (of 5), noting “its unashamed blockbuster urges and tunepower make it all the more irresistible” and Real Groove called Right Here “an assured collection of streamlined tunes that’s guaranteed to surf the airwaves.”
