Sweet original music of this lush creative land, with spotlights on Matt Hay, El Hula aka Blair Jollands, and artists playing the next Ministry of Folk concert, feature on tomorrow’s She’ll Be Right on Saturdays Show with PJ Taylor, midday to 4pm (NZ time, April 6) on East FM.

There’ll be new music, too, by Justin Devereux, The Golds (Kiwis based in Melbourne, including Howick lad Tim Anstice), and the Banana Mundo song for International Cultural Appreciation Day (April 5).

Looking forward to talking with Matt Hay, a veteran Wellington “Kiwimericana” songwriter, as he celebrates the release of his brand new album, Dog and Pony Show, just out on Friday.

“I'm thrilled to share this collection of songs,” says Hay. “It's been a great experience collaborating with such talented musicians, and I can't wait for folks to hear the result.”

Dog and Pony Show is soulfully produced by fellow Pōneke musician, blues master Darren Watson, who says: “It’s testament to Hay's ability to craft strong, thoughtful, and often wry lyrics that touch on everything, from the minutiae of everyday life, to broader political themes. All that and musical hooks for days!”

Recorded largely live-in-the-studio at Watson’s Lamington Recording (essentially his lounge), “over its eight tracks Dog and Pony Show captures the essence of Hay's honest and heartfelt approach to music”.

Watson plays slide guitar, and is joined by “a stellar line-up”, Steve Moodie on double bass, Craig Denham on accordion, and Delia Shanly on drums and percussion.

“The album boasts a real ‘down-home’ feel where Hay's vocals take centre stage, drawing listeners in and offering an intimate experience,” says Darren.

matthay1.bandcamp.com... and all major streaming platforms and digital music stores.

Rescheduled from last Saturday, we’ll be talking to Blair Jollands at 1.30pm and playing tracks by the ex-pat Kiwi singer-songwriter, musician and producer, who is home performing solo shows nationwide this month to celebrate the release of his latest El Hula project Hide No More.

Tickets for Blair Jollands’ April shows in Aotearoa are at www.undertheradar.co.nz...

We’ll also spin recordings by the fascinating, talented line-up performing at the next Ministry of Folk concert – Finn Johansson, Moon Goose, and Hoop, the resident band. It’s on Saturday, April 13, at the historic Auckland Guide Hall, 132 Grange Rd, Mt Eden.

Banana Mundo, our favourite vibrant nine-piece band from New Plymouth, are excited to share their latest single, Intercultural Appreciation Day, from the soon to be released EP of the same title.

Their intrepid leader, Andre Manuella, says: “Intercultural Appreciation Day is more than just a song. It's a celebration of the diverse tapestry of cultures we're fortunate to have in Aotearoa, New Zealand. Inspired by the spirit and diversity of the Womad Festival, which our hometown is proud to host annually, this track is an upbeat, rhythm-filled homage to the musical and cultural diversity that enriches our community.”

Banana Mundo’s music blends Latin, funk, Afrobeat and Polka, “creating an infectious energy that encourages listeners to dance and celebrate life”. www.bananamundo.com...

The Golds are a songwriting production duo in Melbourne, Australia. With four decades of songwriting and production experience between them, Tim Anstice and Reuben Collins have teamed up to create – The Golds (not a band). We’ll play their most recent singles, Best Friend, and, My Boy, Franky.

East FM is East Auckland’s fair-dinkum community-powered public service radio station, on 88.1FM and 107.1FM on local frequencies, nationally and globally at www.eastfm.nz... and on app iHeart Radio.

She’ll Be Right - it’s all about the vibe; it’s all about the groove. Providing a platform for NZ music and performing artists to exhibit their talents. Ka pai. – PJ
