Belle CD by Bic Runga 1Disc
Since her first single ‘Drive’ in 1996 – a top ten hit when she was just twenty – she has been awarded almost every musical honour in the country, including the APRA Silver Scroll Songwriting Award, a brace of Tui’s and multi-platinum discs. Her debut album Drive (1997) went platinum seven times; Beautiful Collision followed in 2002 (eleven times platinum) and Birds in 2005 (triple platinum). She has shared stages with Neil and Tim Finn, Dave Dobbyn, members of Radiohead and Wilco. Her songs have featured in hit film soundtracks (American Pie), her records have been released around the world, and she has won followings in Europe, Asia and North America. In January 2006, The Queen made Runga a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the New Zealand New Year's Honours Lis­t.
Bic Runga is one of just a handful of New Zealand musicians who have truly earned the title ‘iconic’. Her songs are etched into the country’s con­sciousness.
