Music Thinks - with Ryan Kershaw

In this month's newsletter, we bring you a guest editorial from Ryan Kershaw.
Visit http://www.ryankershaw.com/ for more information.

In a perfect world many people would like to take a pill and magically be able to play amazing guitar. Trust me, if I knew of a pill like that I would have taken it years ago.

Reality is though, that there is no magic pill and it takes years of hard work and perseverance to get to a professional level. Yes there will be a lot of challenges but it is through overcoming and learning from those challenges that you become a better player and a better musician.

In this guest “Music Thinks” column for muzic.net.nz I will show you how to think in order to get you on your music career pushing forward and not let anything get in your way. This column is directed primarily towards those of you that are guitarists but it’s core idea is just as valuable to remember no matter what instrument you play.

To kick things off we will start with perhaps the most important thing of all. This idea really connected with me after reading Jack Canfields ‘The Success Principles’ and is the first principle in his book;


Can’t finder a teacher? So what; Jimi Hendrix didn’t have a regular teacher. No money? Find ways to make some. It is your responsibility to make sure that you become a great player, no one else’s. No one else can exercise your fingers for you.

Remember that while it is tempting to blame other people for not helping you or even for double crossing you, keeping your attention on that is taking time from looking at who can help you. Try and see how you can learn from negative experiences and use the experience to grow from.

To be honest in life it’s pretty hard to cruise through without coming across major obstacles no matter who you are.. Do you think it was easy for Dave Grohl to deal with the death of Kurt Cobain? It would have been quite easy for him to quit music then and there but he didn’t.

Tony Iommi could have used getting the tips of his fingers cut off as an excuse and stopped playing. Jeff Healey could have given up because he was blind. And I don’t even need to mention Jason Becker! All of the previously mentioned guitarists went on to greatness and found massive respect because they didn’t blame or point their fingers at everything else. They got on with it!

If you take 100% responsibility you instantly shift towards what CAN work. You feel strength in knowing that you are the creator of your career and you are the one that will get you playing as good as, or even better than your favourite guitarists.

Sure, be annoyed for a minute or two when things go wrong but get on to getting good things done quickly, and use your energy to move forward. The truth is that none of us have a perfect journey towards guitar playing greatness, but knowing that you are responsible for doing well, and no one else, is the first step in making that journey pretty damn cool.

I’d like to leave you with some musicians to look up who have overcome the odds to become great despite the adversities that they faced. Read about or check out some videos of Mark Goffeney, Django Reinhardt, and a player I mentioned earlier in this article, Jason Becker.

Keep heading for your dreams and don’t let anyone elses negativity in New Zealand or otherwise stop you! Most of all, make sure it’s not your own thinking that is holding you back m/

- Ryan Kershaw


Megan Sidwell

Megan Sidwell embodies the perfect balance of edgy, chuck-wearing rocker with the pure heart of a country belle. Her music forms a unity between the sensibilities of rock and country pop. Her songs bleed infectious pop hooks and country harmonies, with an edge and a dramatic overtone uniquely her own. Thanks to Megan for answering the following questions:

Which one of your songs are you most proud of, and why?

I’m really proud of each song off my EP, Forever on a Sunday. I can listen to that whole EP and not cringe so much that I have to turn it off. And that’s a huge thing for me! (An annoying perfectionist)

Where is your favourite place to relax in NZ?

There is a little beach just north of Orewa that I go to when I need to escape the city. Nothing beats the Mount beach though. I spent a lot of time there growing up.

How would you describe your music in one sentence?

Like Taylor Swift but more badass.

What can we expect to see from you over the next year?

Hopefully a lot more live shows with my incredible band. Looking at recording at the end of the year too if I can get enough funding.

What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?

When you find a genre that you feel best represents you, do not change for anyone. If you start doubting yourself then others will too. Oh and always treat everyone with the utmost respect. You never know who could be listening!

What can you never leave home without?

Definitely my phone so I have access to EVERYTHING, and a trusty pair of chucks. I own a lot of pairs so I always have something that will match each outfit.

What is your most embarrassing on tour/gig moment?

I was giving out CDs from on stage at a New Year’s Eve gig. I went to throw one to someone and completely missed and nearly hit another person in the head…

What inspired you to become a musician?

Music got me through a lot during my teenage years. I wanted to write a song that would help someone out the same way that music had helped me. That’s why I write so much about the different kind of relationships you can have. It’s something personal to me, but also something that I hope my listeners can relate to in their own lives.

What rumour would you like to start about yourself?

That myself and Hayley Williams (Paramore) are BFFs.

Forever On A Sunday EP Review
Forever on a Sunday - Stunning Debut from Country Pop Rocker Megan Sidwell (press release)


Heathen Eyes

Heathen Eyes are a hard rock/metal band based in Auckland, and have been together since 2010. They mix influence from metal, 90's rock and ambient rock - keeping dynamics strong and mixing between heavy and softer influences. Thanks to Jason for answering the following questions:

Which one of your songs are you most proud of, and why?

For me the song I am most proud of would be Into The Waves, which we recorded at York Street just before it closed, we will be releasing it after our EP. I'm proud of that song because it really represents everything we embody as a band; beautiful, dreamy, heavy and aggressive all mixed into one.

What can we expect to see from Heathen Eyes over the next year?

We have been piecing together a release for the best part of a year now so that should be out to the public soon, also the Into The Waves release and video. So yeah, we have shows to play, 8th of August at The Kings Arms being one and an EP and follow up single to release also having a live session filmed and recorded for the web.

What local albums have you been enjoying recently?

Myself and Paul have been big fans of Cobra Khan and their two last albums, they are part of our influence to have synths in our music, then there is always Shihad's Killjoy album..... but then I like old school, I'm not huge on a lot of the newer bands.

What inspired you to start Heathen Eyes?

Life inspired me to start this band, I had recorded a song (Sun) with our synth player before he was in the band... before there WAS a band for that matter, it was just me tracking everything with Paul, I showed a few people at Mainz the track and they were keen to get in on it. I had just left Wellington after a break up and hadn't started a band on my own for a few years and wanted to have more creative control than I'd had before just being a stand alone singer.

Tell us about Heathen Eyes’ next release.

The next release from us will be the finished 5 track EP - we've released 2 singles off it already which have had good feedback, it's been great watching the process speed up as Paul has been growing as a producer/engineer. The EP is a crossover of genres. Though keeping in the rock/metal vibe people will notice a lot of different influences, it gets pretty dark in parts as Paul was really pushing for emotive influence and then it changes into just rocking the fuck out...... Darkness with a smile ;) 

What is your most embarrassing on tour/gig moment?

Well the funniest thing.... we were on tour with Evil In Eden while Paul was playing with them and we had a different line up, their singer was pretty tanked in the van and decided his burger would look better on his face and smeared it everywhere..... then washed his face in a puddle on the side of the road, amazingly they owned that nights show like champs, it was side splitting!

What sets you apart from other bands?

Hmmmmm, what sets us aside is our dedication to "the show", too many bands expect things to be handed to them and don't put out the energy themselves.
We know that in order to impress you must perform like it's a packed house every time and that without that "show" you may as well go and listen to a CD.

Heathen Eyes is Jason McIver (guitar, vocals), Billy Todman (bass), Paul Lawrence (synths, samples), Jak Stone (guitar, vocals) and Chris Birch (drums).

You're Gonna Need A God Single Review
Blood of Cain Single Release Gig Review @ Kings Arms Tavern, Auckland 01/11/13
Blood of Cain Single Review


Fiona Pears

Violinist and composer Fiona Pears started performing as a soloist with orchestras at the age of twelve. Now based in both London and New Zealand, she has forged a career as an international soloist and recording artist. Thanks to Fiona for answering the following questions:

Where is your favourite place to relax in NZ?

I love being at home with my family. I live with my hubby Ian Tilley, doggy Barnaby Jackson and Cat Millie Tilley Pears. After travelling and touring for so much of the last 10 years, there is something so special about just being able to play with the pets and spend lazy time in my new vegetable garden or painting another room in the house. Guess I love a bit of DIY! Something that contrasts well with violin practice and getting glammed up for the concerts. I also love the fact that I can stay in my PJ's till the afternoon! 

What local albums have you been enjoying recently?

Cool Water By Delaney Davidson and Marlon Williams. Love these guys!  

What is your long term goal?

To never lose the passion to be a better musician and teacher.

Where do you get your inspiration to create music from?

Life! People, places and the family pets... ha ha! I keep writing tunes about the new 4 legged additions to the family! I also love quiet time. One of the tunes on, Swing Driven Thing, was written while sitting outside at midnight looking at a beautiful full moon. I find that when I am really quiet and on my own I keep getting melodies arriving in my head.  

Tell us about your next release.

I have just released Swing Driven Thing. This CD is a little different to my other releases. People have been asking me for years about recording a swing album. I’ve always loved the music of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli, and although I often play this music live, I haven’t recorded much of it until now. As always with my CDs, I like to have a mixture of styles to keep it interesting for the listener. So there’s everything from the beautiful Django piece, Nuages, my own arrangement of Duke Ellington’s famous, Caravan, right through to a few of my own compositions, including the more classical, More Than a Memory. As you can see from the cover, this album is intended to be fun! I had a great time recording it and I hope that you will hear this in the performances…

What can you never leave home without?

Sadly, my iPhone...

What inspired you to become a musician?

My family, but all I remember as that as a child I was most happy when I was playing music or listening to music. I never entertained the idea of doing anything else with my life.

Fiona Pears ‘Swing Driven Thing’ CD (press release)



Hot on the heels of their soulful debut single, Find Yourself, and fresh off the back of a hugely successful Launch/Release Show in March, Stormporter are out to bring some Sparkle, Shimmer and Shine to NZ Music Month, when they release their eagerly awaited 2nd single.

Produced by Kiwi legend, Ben King (Goldenhorse, Grand Rapids) - known for his uncanny ability to find the heart of a pop song - Stormporter will be dropping this shiny new, Indie pop-rock gem smack bang in the middle of NZ Music Month. Like it’s predecessor, Sparkle Shimmer Shine will no doubt charm it’s way onto radio airwaves and into the ears and hearts of Kiwi music lovers.

The Stormporter boys, Tim Allen and Tones Thorburn - two storytelling Brits who now call NZ home - were in mighty fine company when tracking the song at The Lab studio. Matthias Jordan (Pluto, Gin Wigmore) brings sparkling piano melody dished up with huge Hammond-driven choruses - fast becoming a staple diet of Stormporter’s signature sound. The pomp and fanfare of trumpet - Haddon Smith (The Checks, Ruby Frost, Annah Mac) - stirs up emotion, while the drums of Adam Tobeck (Jesse Sheehan) combined with Ben King’s groovin’ bass, lay down a solid foundation for Tim Allen’s sweet, heartfelt vocal delivery. Tones’ shimmering signature guitar riffing once again shines through, and the ridiculously uplifting choruses are sure to brighten and lighten your day, as you hum and sing along with carefree abandon.

Stormporter fans and listeners will be left hungering for an encore; with upcoming live shows soon to be announced plus, news of a debut EP in the planning, that hunger will no doubt soon be satisfied.

It won’t be long before this perfect storm moves off-shore onto the global stage. The long range forecast is for more musical storms; otherwise fine.

Sparkle Shimmer Shine // new single & video // out soon!

Stormporter are Tim Allen and Tones.

MMF Music Managers Awards - Finalists announced

It is an event managers and other industry guests look forward to each year, and this year the MMF Music Managers Awards is to be held at The Tuning Fork in Auckland on Wednesday May 14.

New Zealand music managers today work tirelessly for the love of their band and are far more than a manager of affairs; they’re a booking agent, record company, travel agent, merchandise seller, driver, counselor and at times even a wardrobe assistant.

The MMF Music Managers Awards recognise the blood sweat and tears of those working frantically behind the scenes of New Zealand’s most popular acts.

The Taite Music Prize: announcing this year’s winner & the Independent Music NZ Classic Record recipient

The winner of the fourth annual Taite Music Prize 2013 is Lorde for her album Pure Heroine released on Universal Music New Zealand.

Grant Smithies, one the 2014 judging panel said: “..this was the year when a diverse bunch of grizzled music industry veterans/ writers/ record snobs chose a smart, challenging and original underground pop LP as the best record made here in the last 12 months. Lorde’s LP was a rare example of an underground pop record being so damn good, it went mainstream, not just here, but worldwide.”

Named after the late Dylan Taite, one of the country's most highly respected music journalists, this was the fourth year for the prestigious award. The Taite Music Prize's purpose is to recognise outstanding creativity for an entire collection of music contained on one album. Lorde wins a cash prize of $10,000, to be spent as she wishes. The Taite Music Prize is organised by Independent Music New Zealand (IMNZ), and PPNZ Music Licensing kindly supplies the cash prize. The winner will also receive free recording time at Red Bull Studios and a year’s supply of Red Bull product, alongside a KiwiFM marketing campaign.

Smokefreerockquest & Smokefree Pacifica Beats 2014

Out of the classroom and onto the stage – it’s the big motivational promise that Smokefreerockquest has been offering to young Kiwi musos for the last 26 years, matched for the last decade by its ‘sister’ event Smokefree Pacifica Beats.

With the current success of soloists Lorde, Aaradhna and Kimbra, and bands such as Shapeshifter and Broods, founders and directors Pete Rainey and Glenn Common say motivation has never run higher.

“People might assume that kids just need to practice a song – but there’s a lot more to it than that,” Common said. “Teachers really value the motivation that playing live on a real stage provides, as kids work through the preparation that is linked to NCEA unit standards.”
