For the uninitiated, here are the basics on the sublimely talented Gin Wigmore.

Gin is 23, a Kiwi, a gifted songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and she sings like you've never heard anyone sing before.

Gin was born in Auckland, lives in Sydney and has just recorded her brilliant debut album, Holy Smoke, in Hollywood's famed Capitol Studios.

Gin created Holy Smoke with Mike Elizondo as her producer [Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor, Eminem, Nelly Furtado, Maroon 5] and with The Cardinals as her backing band [as in the very same Cardinals from Ryan Adams & The Cardinals].

Cardinals' guitarist Neal Casal has described Gin as "unquestionably one of the most exciting new artists to emerge in many years. Her songwriting is at once diverse, intelligent, melodic, and soulful. Her voice is raw and emotional, with phrasing far beyond her years. Her debut record is a fully realised statement of intent, promising a great career ahead."

Fellow Cardinal Jon Graboff says: "Gin's songwriting seems to subtly embrace so many different musical forms and lyrically, there's often a maturity and depth that you wouldn't normally associate with someone so young. There's profound connection between her and all the great, soulful singers who've come before her and she adds a new chapter to that story."

Exactly how did a blonde-and-blue-eyed young Kiwi find herself in Hollywood's most famous recording studio, sitting on Frank Sinatra's old leopard skin chair and putting down tracks for her debut album with one of the world's best rock bands?

If you've already heard Gin Wigmore sing, a lot of those questions answer themselves.

"…they play bluesy, sleazy, guitar raunch…" - ROLLING STONE.

A rock & roll band with an enduring fondness for pure pop and a wicked, sly sense of humor, TAB the Band defy easy categorization. They may love the Beatles and Cheap Trick as much as T-Rex and the Rolling Stones, but TAB aren't classic rockers; they're a vibrant, contemporary band that blends the vigor of punk, the might of arena rock and the melodicism of power-pop, earning the admiration of Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse, Stone Temple Pilots, Slash, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr, alt-rock stalwarts who requested TAB The Band as their opening act. TAB the Band has also played alongside the likes of Cage the Elephant, Art Brut, and others.

TAB the Band has been featured by MTV's Jersey Shore, HBO's Entourage, the MLB2K11 video game, and at major festivals such as Lollapalooza, Mountain Jam, Hyde Park Festival, Download Festival, SXSW and CMJ.

TAB the Band's full range can be heard on Zoo Noises (released Jan 2010), a freewheeling, all-encompassing carnival ride, fueled by such intoxicating singles as the percussive "She Said No (I Love You)" and the breakneck hooks of "Bought and Sold."
