Congratulations go to our winner this year, James Constable.

James is a Year 10 student at Rangiora High School in Christchurch who has a range of musical influences including Crowded House, Split Enz, The Beach Boys and The Smiths but his winning entry shows strong influences of The Beatles. “I am generally a 60’s / Jangle Pop kind of guy”, says James, who’s interests growing up have included soccer. Now it’s music all the way for James.
