David Shanhun & Mark Moroney
Auckland-based singer-songwriter David Shanhun is reaping the benefits of a leap of faith with his new single I Believe In You reaching number two on the New Zealand country charts on iTunes on the first day of its release. In 2012 David’s single Missing You held the number one spot on www.theaudience.co.nz’s weekly chart for five weeks. In 2013 David became the only artist to have been nominated twice for the coveted Horizon Award. With the release of his second album Walking Through Walls, Mark Moroney has stamped himself as one of the best emerging Australian singer songwriters. The depth and honesty of his music draws the listener in to the raw emotion of the stories, combining with his unique blend of finger-style guitar and smokin’ soul vocals to deliver something truly extraordinary. Mark’s sound stems from the music traditions of the American south, where blues, folk, jazz, soul and pop melt together seamlessly, and yet his warm, relaxed attitude and approach to music and storytelling is distinctly Australian.
