In episode 13, we sit down with songwriter Nur Peach and discuss her passion for music. Such a great conversation was had here! ------ Nur Peach grew up surrounded by music and has been singing all her life. Born in New Zealand’s beautiful Coromandel Peninsula, and having lived there all her life, she has always been surrounded by the inspiring beauty of nature. As the daughter of a professional musician, there were always musical instruments around and performance opportunities since a very young age. At the age of five, Nur began to write her own songs. By the time she was nine years old, Nur had already performed in many places in New Zealand and around the world, including Israel and busking on the streets of Paris, accompanied by her father Dylan Wade on guitar. It was at that age that Wade began to teach his daughter how to play guitar herself, and that same year when she began piano lessons. Today, Nur writes and accompanies herself on both guitar and piano. In 2013, Nur won the Intermediate section in the Purple Cake Day “Kenya Song Challenge,” and in 2015, she was the Waikato regional winner for the APRA Lyric Award at the Smokefreerockquest. In 2016, Nur was the Waikato regional winner of the Play it Strange “Get Connected” song writing competition for her song “Feel the Sun,” which she recorded at Roundhead Studios. Her four-track acoustic EP, “Hello World,” released in 2015, is much played on many people’s stereos. She is currently studying towards a Bachelor of Music (specialising in popular music) at The University of Auckland. Nur combines folk, pop and rock into her own distinctive sound. Her songs' inspirational and uplifting lyrical content is both personal and universal. Her mission is to inspire people to create positive changes in both the world and themselves.
