Tenei au he Tangata

- Album includes the haka 'Tenei au he Tangata' which is dedicated to

long-time Velvettes bandmate Tetaki (Wally) Tairakena who "taught me about

commitment, friendship and loyalty and who was sadly taken in the

Christchurch earthquake in February 2011. 'Ka kite ano e hoa'".


"Writing and performing this haka was and is still a rewarding experience

for me. It gives me opportunity to express myself totally in all three aspects of

being a Maori Christian Man."
