Biography

Me? Well, my full name is Virginia Claire Wigmore, shortened years back to Ginny, then with a little more innocence lost, it got dwindled down to an even tidier nickname, “Gin.” I guess my ma & pa were always big fans of a few cheeky G&Ts on a regular occasion, so it seemed a winning fit for all.
The music? It all started rattling out of me around the age 12; ... Read more in Amazon's Gin Wigmore Store

Product Description

About the Artist

Gin Wigmore's eagerly anticipated debut album `HOLY SMOKE' was released in her native New Zealand (Double Platinum) and Australia (nearing Gold) and will follow here in the States March 16th. Recorded in Los Angeles with a `dream team' of production and musician talents, Gin's album represents the latest chapter in a story which began back in her home town of Auckland, New Zealand.

After months preparing to record her album, songwriting alone and with Martin Terefe (Jason Mraz, KT Tunstall, James Morrison), Dan Wilson (Dixie Chicks, Semisonic), Mitchell Froom (Crowded House) and Mike Elizondo (Eminem, 50 Cent, Gwen Stefani, Fiona Apple), Gin once again packed her bags and headed across the Pacific to commence recording.

Fun tempo and Gin's voice is unique.

Gin voice is unlike anything I've listened to in the past. To me it's very infrequent to find artists that cut new teeth and set a style all their own. She is definitely talented and entertaining.

I bought this CD on a whim because I like Amy Winehouse, Lilly Allen, Florence and the Machines, etc. and I loved it!! She has a great raspy voice and lyrics similar to Amy Winehouse but you can really rock out to most of the songs. I almost never like every single song off an album, I think I could only name about 10 or 15 that I have and Holy Smoke is one of them. If you like Amy Winehouse you will like Gin Wigmore even more!!

We say Gin with Jamie Cullum at Chateau St Michelle in Woodland, WA last night and bought her album on the spot. Great show, amazing voice and full of spunk, that girl is! Sounds along the lines of Adele, whom I adore, but with a rockabilly feel. Buy this album! It's great!

She is very versatile and talented she has a sound that channels Adele and Amy Winehouse. Then she also has a rock sound as well. There's something for everyone I am very pleased with this one and look forward to hearing lots more from this artist in the future. It helped that I heard Hey Ho on the Weeds series and had to check this one out after that. Glad I did and would recommend this one to anyone if you like good music.

This woman is amazingly good live! If you get a chance, do go to see her. The album holds up well with the best tracks being Hey Ho and Oh My but I've been playing the whole album for the past month and all the tracks have grown on me.

I just saw Gin Wigmore open up for Jamie Cullum and immediately wanted to find more. She's witty and fun and her musical talents are clear. This CD is a great follow-up to her EP (Extended Play) and illustrates both slow, soulful songs and upbeat catchy tunes... I especially like "Too Late for Lovers," "Hey Ho" (about killing a lover), and "Don't Stop."

One surprising observation (especially for today's music scene) is that I actually found some of these tracks over-produced for Gin's talents. I thought she was actually better live with some songs than the tracks that made it on recording. Definitely recommend checking her concerts out.

I have been known to buy a CD just to hear one song over and over. When I purchsed this CD, I admit it was for one song..my surprize...they are all great. No hitting the 'next' or 'previous' button on this one!

I ordered this CD because I heard the catchy song on the Home Depot TV advertisement. I was so suprised to find I REALlY liked the rest of the songs on the CD. She has a great upbeat powerful voice.
