Wow. This is difficult. New Zealand’s a lovely place but musical export does not seem to be its thing. Umm. Flight Of The Conchords? Aldous Harding is good. Crowded House were formed in Australia, so not sure they count. Liam Finn? He’s Neil Finn’s son and not in Crowded House so I think he’s allowed. Oh, wait, no. Born in Australia. Damn.
Not really into Lorde all that much. Same could be said about Keith Urban.

  5. Dean Wareham - had no idea he was a kiwi (thanks @jack_on_fire!) - would be number one for Galaxie 500 but this is for solo material

*When people mention The Stones I want them to be talking about these guys:
