Blogging From A-Z Challenge: G is for Gin Wigmore


Inspiration / Monday, April 8th, 2019

Welcome to Day 7 and Week 2 of the Blogging from A-Z Challenge. This week features three of my absolutely favorite female rockers, so buckle up for a fun and rockin’ week!

Just a quick introduction: my name is Elissa Kane, and I am an indie author working on my first mystery novel, A Deadly Melody, which is book 1 of the Fallen Rockstar series.

If you want to find out why I chose this theme, please check out my Blogging from A-Z Challenge theme reveal post.

Now, onto the letter G. . .

I am a huge fan of very unique voices. You’ll find many of the female rockers on this challenge have very different voices, and today’s singer is one of those rockers.

Gin Wigmore

I first heard Gin’s voice on the song, “Black Sheep”, which is one of my favorite songs. It has such a great beat, awesome lyrics, and Gin’s amazing raspy voice. I was completely hooked!

Virginia Claire Wigmore was born in Auckland, Australia and wrote her first song at the age of 14. Gin stopped writing and playing music after her father died. After a trip to Argentina, she wrote a tribute song to her father and won an international singing competition that kicked off her music career.

Gin is a very accomplished artist in New Zealand, winning several New Zealand Music Awards, and with the release of her second album, Gravel and Wine became an international hit. Her songs “Black Sheep” and “Kill of the Night” have been featured in various TV shows, including Grey’s Anatomy, Revenge, Teen Wolf, and Pretty Little Liars.

Gin Wigmore on A Deadly Melody playlist

Gin is all over my A Deadly Melody playlist and my entire Fallen Rockstar series playlists. “Hallow Fate”, “Kill of the Night”, “Odeum”, “Poison”, “Dirty mercy”, “Nothing to No One”, “This Old Heart”, “Don’t Stop”, and of course “Black Sheep” are all on my series playlists.

I like to think that if my main character Elle was singing on the radio today she would have an amazing and unique voice just like Gin!

You can listen to Gin and all of the singers from the A-Z Challenge on my Spotify playlist below:
