SUPERHEROES & SCARY THINGS


Almost 20 years after his landmark album "Somewhere in New Zealand Tonight",
singer/songwriter Glen Moffatt releases his new album "Superheroes & Scary Things"
in Australia and New Zealand in mid-2014.
Featuring 13 songs by Moffatt and his co-writers,
"Superheroes & Scary Things" was recorded in Australia
and New Zealand with contributions from Bill Chambers,
Michel Rose, Chet OConnell and Brendan Radford, among
others.
The first single, "Dont Be Surprised", will be released to
Australian country radio as part of the July CRS disc while
Moffatt's best known song "Somewhere in New Zealand
Tonight" is due yet another airing with its inclusion on
an upcoming Sony Music New Zealand country music
compilation.
Moffatt has been resident in Brisbane since 2002, playing
in bands all over Queensland and northern New South
Wales but mostly raising his three children. With the
youngest having turned five, the time was right to get back
in the recording studio.
Raised in the seaside Art Deco city of Napier, on the east
coast of New Zealand's North Island, Moffatt began writing
songs at the age of 10.
Quitting his job as a newspaper reporter, he moved to
Auckland to pursue his musical ambitions and was soon
singing in Red McKelvie's Cajun band Mumbo Gumbo.
He also began making his mark in the city with his own
country band.
He burst onto the national music scene with his debut
album "Somewhere in New Zealand Tonight" in 1995 and
at the following year's recording industry awards was a
finalist for NZ Music Awards "Songwriter of the year"
a title previously won by such luminary
pop writers as Neil Finn, Dave Dobbyn and
Martin Phillipps.
Two more albums followed, 'A Place To Play' in 1998
and "If That's What You Want" (as the Glen Moffatt Band)
in 2001, both including co-writes with Ritchie Pickett and
Arthur Baysting, before Moffatt relocated to Brisbane.
Along with fronting his own band the Tallboys, he was a
Star Maker grand finalist in 2003 and was part of the
Smokin' Crawdads line-up that was awarded Queensland
Group or Duo of the Year at the inaugural Queensland
Country Music Awards in 2010 with their album "Straight to
the Pool Room".
As a performer, he has shared the stage with a diverse
range of acts from American Cajun star Wayne Toups to
Byrds sideman Earl P. Ball to Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh to
Bill Chambers, James Blundell and the Topp Twins.
His songs have been included on albums by Bill
Chambers, Michael Muchow, Donna Dean, Ritchie Pickett,
Kevin Greaves, Darryl Apps and Dennis Marsh.
