Tough cherub

Auckland singer Gin Wigmore, 23, is included alongside Little Boots, Peaches and Megan Washington in Australian magazine Yen, in an article called ‘All the Single Ladies’ , which says: “They may not have rated a mention in Triple J’s ‘Hottest 100 of All Time’, but we say the girls have got it going on”. Wigmore’s debut EP, Extended Play, went gold in New Zealand and her current album Holy Smoke has some serious cred, having been recorded at the iconic Capitol Studios in Los Angeles. She’s also now being backed by The Cardinals. “You have to be really strong, confident and determined as a girl in this industry to make any headway,” Wigmore says. Also mentioned in this month’s edition of Yen are accessory designers Liam Bowden and Katie Smith of Deadly Ponies. “You never thought a leather bag could drip, right? You’ve not felt a Deadly Ponies creation then.”
