Biography
At 21, Auckland-born Anika Moa is the first unknown New Zealand artist to ever be signed to a major label (Atlantic). Not a bad start for the Christchurch-raised singer/songwriter who not long ago performed at the Smokefree Rockquest competition. On the back of her single Youthful, the label debut Thinking Room (recorded in New York with Victor Van Vugt) hit number one in her homeland, for which the song "Falling in Love Again" was written. She has already toured twice with Tim Finn and Stellar* and performed support at the request of Dido. ~ Kelvin Hayes, Rovi
