Harmony House Reviewed on The Sampler

"It’s nearly eight years since the last new album from Dave Dobbyn, though somehow it doesn’t seem that long. When your songs have become such a part of the landscape then you are a constant presence, whether you are releasing new music or not. Still a fresh set of Dobbyn songs is welcome, and a chance to find out how that landscape is looking through the eyes of a master songwriter."

You can listen to Nick Bolinger's full review of Harmony House here.

Dave Dobbyn in studio with Phoenix Foundation

 

Dave Dobbyn is animated but relaxed as he talks about what he does best - write songs.

It's mid morning and he's at his Grey Lynn home studio in Auckland with Samuel Flynn Scott and Luke Buda of the Phoenix Foundation.  They're into the second day of working on material for Dobbyn's first solo album since 2008.

Dobbyn pays tribute to Pike River 29 with 'This Love'

‘This Love’ by Dave Dobbyn with the Orpheus Choir of Wellington is a moving tribute to the Pike River 29.   The piece was first performed at a concert attended by members of the miners’ bereaved families and was recorded by Radio NZ Concert.  The choral arrangement is by Mark Dorrell.   Also performing are Wellington Young Voices, Mark Vanilau (piano), Jo Barus (bass), Ross Burge (drums) and Chris Clark (cornet).
