Gin Wigmore, ‘Devil In Me’ (Old Queens Head Session) Video Premiere
Gin Wigmore picks up an acoustic guitar to strum on during her performance of ‘Devil In Me,’ the third and final installment in a series of exclusive live clips Diffuser.fm has been rolling out from the New Zealand-based singer. The performances come from a recent U.K. studio outing Wigmore has dubbed the Old Queens Head Session, and her powerful pipes and magnetic charisma really shine through with this version of ‘Devil,’ which features tight accompaniment from her five-piece backing band.
“This is a song I really wanted to write, about the lengths of misery, despair and desperation a person goes through when being left for another by a lover,” Wigmore says of the tune, which comes from her sophomore album ‘Gravel & Wine,’ released yesterday in the States. “I liked the sorrow and desire of giving in to drinking yourself to the point where it doesn’t hurt anymore, to a point where finally you feel numb because that feels better than dealing with the state of affairs.”
If most Americans haven’t heard of Wigmore, it likely won’t be long. She’s an established entity in her homeland of New Zealand, and she’s been making inroads into the U.S. market thanks to the pair of songs she landed in high-profile Heineken and Guinness commercials, as well as the handful of tunes she’s had featured on stateside TV shows. If you dig ‘Devil,’ don’t miss her Old Queens Head Session takes on ‘Man Like That’ and ‘Don’t Stop,’ which we premiered recently.
‘Gravel & Wine’ first dropped in New Zealand back in 2011, and Wigmore will promote its U.S. release tomorrow (April 4) with an appearance on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ and Friday (April 5) on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.’ She’s also is gearing up to hit the road on a U.S. tour with Phillip Phillips that that kicks off later this month.
