Don McGlashan’s songs of love, landscape and mystery have taken snapshots of
life in New Zealand for over three decades. By consistently challenging himself,
he’s achieved that rare combination: wide appeal, and the respect of fellow artists.
His effect on the Great New Zealand songbook is immeasurable.
Since The Mutton Birds period, Don has made three acclaimed solo albums -
Warm Hand (2006), Marvellous Year (2009), and Lucky Stars (2015). His 2006
gospel anthem “Bathe In The River” sung by Hollie Smith has become one of the
biggest NZ singles of all time.
Don has toured Australia, the US and Europe with Crowded House, both as an
opening act and as a band member. He was also involved in Neil Finn’s Seven Worlds Collide project, collaborating with The Smiths’ Johnny Marr, and members of Wilco and Radiohead, and he recently performed on Finn’s latest album Out Of Silence.
In 2012 he led the reformed Mutton Birds on a very special New Zealand tour, as
well as one show at the Shepherds Bush Empire in London.
His most successful record since his time with The Mutton Birds, Lucky Stars
(released 2015) charted in the top 5 of the NZ Album Chart and saw an
overwhelming number of rave reviews in both New Zealand and Australia.

“The detail in Don’s songs – his lyrics – framed by the strange angels resting on
his shoulders, cresting the wave of each song with him, help to shape and place
this music as moment, postcard, handwritten letter.” - Off The Tracks
“A masterclass in song craft... with an inner world all his own.” - Rolling Stone
