Donald Reid - Donald Reid Newsletter Interview

06 Nov 2006 // An interview by Shade
1) What was your greatest achievement during 2006?

Finally releasing the album! It took a lot longer than I thought it would! The next one will be a quick turn around... Have started on the next album... Other things... The tour in July was a a good time... Looking forward to the next one... Summer tour with The Feelers

2) Do you have any new recordings or tours planned for 2007?

I’ve started on getting the songs together for the next album and hope to be in the studio in Jan 2007! I will be touring in UK, Ireland, Switzerland and Germany early/mid in 2007

3) What do you think could be done to make NZ music even better?

Currently there are quite a few organisations helping musicians work out how to get their music out, but there does not seem to be a centralised place to go to get an overview of what is available. I think we need a more centralised system... It’s hard to work out what everyone does and what’s available, especially if you’re starting out.

4) What is your favourite place to be in NZ?

Favourite place is anywhere away from the city... Any city...

5) Who do you admire the most in NZ music at the moment?

That’s hard... Dan Wrightson (Juice TV), Mike Chunn (Play it Strange)
