This one is a conversation with Vorn Colgan – he records and makes music as a solo artist and with a band under the name Vorn. He’s also a member of Gold Medal Famous and the Wellington Sea Shanty Society.
He’s made plenty of albums – they’re worth checking out, all of them – most recently he and his band created an ‘album’ that only exists as a live-in-studio performance on YouTube.
They’re about to take that about for some shows – firstly at MOON 1 in Newtown next weekend, Saturday December 16.
One thing we didn’t cover in our chat here, but I wanted to mention it, is that Vorn is a great writer – of blog-posts, essays, thoughts…he has an ongoing series about rugby’s dominance on and over Kiwi culture and for a snapshot of some of his great writing you can check out two posts he did for my site – five albums and five films. Great writing.
Vorn and I had a great talk about making music, about working day-jobs, travelling, finding influence/s and so many other things. I hope you enjoy it too.
