Bic Runga, Bangalow A&I, Sunday

After a five-year break to raise her son, Bic Runga returns with a new album Belle and a performance at the Bangalow A&I Hall on Sunday 6 May.

With her first two albums each selling 11 times platinum in her home country, top-ten hits in Australia, Japan and Ireland and critical success in the UK, Bic Runga is one of the highest-selling artists in New Zealand music history. The five years since her last album of new material have passed quickly, at least for Bic. You could say life intervened – specifically the birth in 2007 of her son. ‘Motherhood is very nice. But there comes a point where it would be really easy to lose your identity, and if you didn’t return to your art you’d just become a pain to everyone around you.’
