Homegrown Profiles: Bic Runga

Television (Full Length) – 2005

This episode of C4's music series Homegrown Profiles features singer/songwriter Bic Runga, who burst onto the New Zealand music scene in 1997 with her record-breaking debut album Drive. Since then Runga has had both local and international success and released two further hit albums, Beautiful Collision and Birds. Runga talks about growing up in a musical household (her mother and two older sisters are all singers), the success of Drive, and her "difficult second album", which was released a full five years after her debut. 

Bic Runga's debut album Drive had enjoyed unprecedented success in New Zealand and was also well received internationally.
