Formation

W O ND E R C H I L D, the second time round came together as a result of the golden juju vibes from Pippa, Shai & Tao. After a a year of taking a break from leading the original band whilst leader Anna-Kat completed her final year of Jazz at WAAPA, she decided she wanted to take the band & sound in a new direction. After working with Shai, Pippa & Tao for her graduation recital, she begged them to join her in her creative wonderland project - WONDERCHILD, to which they all kindly accepted! Each individual has a super generous vibe when it comes to creating music.

Influences

Joni Mitchell, Elton John, Paul Kelly, Missy Higgins, Bowie, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Johnny Cash, Kate Bush, Timothy Nelson, Joel Quatermaine, Anna-Kat's 86 year old grandmother who still rides 2 horses everyday.... her attitude to life largely inspired the lyric.

Shared Bills With

Tashi, Elkwood, The Lammas Tide, Bernardine Grigson, Ezereve, David Mercy, Morrie Beth & The Tommy Hawks .. The original band was born after a ripping fun cover gig where we played after San Cisco.
