No8Whyre is original and refreshing, the story of creation is heart warming and the melody touches your spirit.
"One of the best pieces of original music I have heard.I really like these two songs! 'Light My Fire' has deep
meaning and 'Arise My Soul' has real rhythmn."
Ross McRobie: General Manager (1996-2008): The Radio Network Limited, Christchurch, NZ
This is a fairy tale come true, an adventure spanning many decades, a journey of personal struggle, pain, heartache, persistence and success.
The people of New Zealand are well known for their “No 8 Wire” mentality (the ability to make something out of nothing).
These songs and the associated book are a result of a persistent desire to create music designed to touch the hearts of families and individuals across all walks of life.
Climb aboard this exciting journey and enjoy the magic of Keith and Andrea as they weave their love into these beautiful songs.
