Dunedin songwriter, singer, musician and artist David Kilgour is ‘a guitar god for guitar atheists’ (Merge Records). With his brother Hamish, David formed The Clean in the late eighties, one of the most significant indie rock bands in New Zealand and popular the world over. In 2017 The Clean were inducted into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame. David has also released several albums as a solo artist and with his band the Heavy Eights, and has collaborated with poet Sam Hunt. In the 2001 New Year Honours, David was appointed a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit.
David’s artwork has graced many an album cover, and he regularly posts new art on his website. His work on these speakers is inspired by his love of surfing and is reminiscent of sixties Californian surfboards. He has named the speakers ‘Wave Boarder’, which fans will recognise as the title of one of his songs.
