Musicians I Like
Bic Runga & Boh Runga

Another couple of great sources of Bic news are the fan sites Suddenly Strange and Bic Runga's World. Also check out the Bic Runga section of NZMusic.com for a biography, news items and discussion forum about Bic.
Bic Runga's sister, Boh is the lead singer for the band stellar*. They've been compared with the band Garbage (Personally, I'm more partial to stellar* but you can judge for yourself. To learn more about this great band, check out the official Stellar* Web Site. NZMusic.com also has a section of their site dedicated to stellar* with a brief bio, news stories & users forum. Visit it HERE.
BIC RUNGA CDs
Bic Runga is a very talented (and pretty) singer/songwriter from New Zealand. She is probably best known for the song "Sway" from her debut CD called Drive (also heard in the movie "American Pie").

You can also hear samples of all the songs on this album and get all the tracks in mp3 format here:
mp3 version of Bic Runga's "Drive"

Bic's second studio CD was called Beautiful Collision. If you liked her first CD you'll like this one too. I ordered mine from New Zealand before it was available here in the U.S. but it's now available here for a great price through Amazon.com. (By the way, the cover for the U.S. version of the CD is different than the version released in New Zealand. Personally, I like the U.S. cover better.)

Bic's latest CD (released in New Zealand on November 28, 2005), Birds, is a beautiful self-produced production. She gathered together a band of some of the best and most popular New Zealand recording artists (including Neil Finn, Anika Moa, Shayne Carter, Anna Coddington and more) in Auckland's Monte Cecilia House. I especially like the song "Winning Arrow"! You can see the Winning Arrow video and hear samples of the other songs on this CD by visiting this web page.
