BIC RUNGA’s uniquely phrased pop songs and hauntingly beautiful melodies have already earned her a special place in the pantheon of New Zealand song. Now Bic is set to release her hugely anticipated and star-studded third album, Birds in Australia. Since emerging at 19 years old with her debut single ‘Drive’, Bic has travelled a remarkable musical journey, taking her to the top of charts and winning enormous critical acclaim for her winsome, transfixing tunes. Her albums, Drive (1996) and Beautiful Collision (2002) have sold seven and eleven-times platinum respectively in New Zealand, making her the highest selling New Zealand artist ever! Birds debuted at #1 on the New Zealand charts and was her third consecutive # 1 album chart entry there. It was certified double platinum after only one week, with the first single ‘Winning Arrow’ holding the #1 New Zealand airplay song position for three weeks in a row. The album was named Album of the Year in the NZ Herald Critics’ List. To celebrate the Australian release, Bic will be performing a special 2-part show. Her first set will consist of popular choices from her Drive and Beautiful Collision albums. Then after a short intermission, Bic will return to perform the entire track listing from her new album Birds. These songs will be performed for the first time in Australia with the amazing band that recorded them.
