With #GIRLGANG, Wigmore hand selected five different artists to create exclusive and original pieces inspired by five singles from Ivory. The #GIRLGANG project is designed to highlight and celebrate fellow women and to find a new way to have an experience and connection with music through a variety of artistic formats. Empowering, creative and defiant.
The new album, Ivory, follow’s Gin Wigmore’s third album Blood To Bone, which was met with praise around the world including a nomination for Best Live Act at the 2015 MTV EMA’s and the award for Best Female Artist at the 2015 NZ Music Awards.
In 2013, she released Gravel & Wine, which spawned hit singles "Man Like That," "Black Sheep" and "Kill Of The Night" and in 2009 the release of her debut album Holy Smoke. Both albums reached #1 and multi-platinum status back home in New Zealand.
