Music News - Brooke Fraser & TNAF Big Winners at Vodafone NZ Music Awards

Brooke Fraser & TNAF Big Winners at Vodafone NZ Music Awards

03 November 2011 - 0 Comments

Auckland indie band The Naked and Famous and sultry songstress Brooke Fraser are the big winners at tonight’s (Nov. 3) 2011 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards.

Both are taking home five Tuis, with The Naked and Famous winning the coveted Russian Standard Vodka Album of the Year Award and Brooke Fraser the International Achievement Award.

And to cap off a great night for The Naked and Famous, the band’s video for the single “Punching In A Dream” produced by Special Problems also takes out the NZ On Air Best Music Video category.

Other big winners on the night include Tiki Taane with three Tuis and Ladi6 with two.

Guests attending the awards at Auckland’s Vector Arena enjoyed live performances from Brooke Fraser, The Naked and Famous, Ladi6, Six60, Tiki Taane and Avalanche City. Legendary Kiwi band Supergroove performed its own unique version of Kiwi classic “Rain” in honour of this year’s New Zealand Herald Legacy Award recipient Dragon.

The Naked and Famous, whose debut album “Passive Me, Aggressive You” hit the charts at #1 in New Zealand in 2010 and went on to debut at #25 on the UK album chart, takes home all five  awards in which it was a finalist.

On top of the Album of the Year win, the five-piece band also takes out the Vodafone Single of the Year, FOUR Best Group, Pacific Blue Breakthrough Artist of the Year and Best Alternative Album.

“Passive Me, Aggressive You” was released worldwide in March 2011 and received glowing reviews in Uncut, Mojo, NME and other publications. The band made the prestigious BBC Sound of 2011 long list and in February the band collected the Philip Hall Radar Award at the Shockwaves NME Awards in London.

In addition to her International Achievement Award, Brooke Fraser’s Tui haul includes wins for The Edge Best Pop Album, Highest Selling NZ Single for “Something In The Water”, Highest Selling NZ Album for “Flags” and the Vodafone People’s Choice Award.

Brooke Fraser’s album “Flags” debuted at #1 in the New Zealand Charts and her single “Something In The Water” was a concurrent #1. The single has been certified platinum and “Flags” double platinum. 

Tiki Taane’s three award wins include Best Male Solo Artist and two for his second studio album – “In The World Of Light” – in the Best Electronica and Best Māori Album categories.

Tiki Taane’s “In The World Of Light” debuted at #1 in the NZ Album Chart. The album has produced four radio singles – “Soundtrack To Forever”, “Summertime”, “Light Years Away” and “Come Fly With Me”.

The award for Best Female Solo Artist goes to Ladi6 who also takes out the Tui for Serato Best Urban Hip Hop Album for “The Liberation Of…”.

Tuis announced on the night also go to:

·         PPNZ Best Rock Album – Shihad for “Ignite”
·         Best Roots Album – TrinityRoots for “Music Is Choice”
·         Best Gospel / Christian Album – Parachute Band for “Love Without Measure”
·         Best Classical Album – NZ String Quartet for “Notes From A Journey”
·         NZ On Air Radio Airplay Record of the Year Award – Stan Walker for “Choose You”
·         New Zealand Herald Legacy Award – Dragon

Recording Industry Association of New Zealand managing director Chris Caddick says it has been a momentous night for The Naked and Famous and Brooke Fraser – and a great night for Kiwi music in general.

“Every year the awards deliver great New Zealand tunes and provide a benchmark for both the industry and music consumers to gauge how we are performing.  What’s really pleasing is to see the succession of young musicians very much making their marks. My sincere congratulations to all the finalists and winners.”
