Georgia Lines and Brooke Fraser on INTROS


Georgia Lines’ popular music web series, INTROS, is being hosted on Rolling Stone AU/NZ for the first time this year.

The new series of INTROS features Lines sitting down with her favourite female and non-binary artists for a relaxed kōrero. Each episode focuses on the artist’s chosen song, delving into the story behind the song and the process of writing, before the artist will treat viewers to a live performance.

In the ninth episode of season three, Lines interviews an artist that really needs no introduction to Kiwi audiences: Brooke Fraser.

One of New Zealand’s best-selling singer-songwriters of all time, Fraser enjoyed a spectacular run in the noughties, with her first three albums – What to Do with Daylight (2003), Albertine (2006), and Flags (2010) – reaching the top of the NZ Albums Chart, and all three went on to become certified platinum multiple times.

For the first time in seven years, Fraser is returning to NZ for a special one-off show.

The Grammy Award-winning artist will perform with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra (APO) at Spark Arena in Auckland on June 22nd, showcasing hits from her acclaimed solo albums in new arrangements alongside the seventy-piece orchestra.

“I feel utterly honoured to have the opportunity not only to play some of these treasured songs again, but also to bring them to expression in a brand new way through this collaboration with the Auckland Philharmonia,” Fraser says about the special show.

“There isn’t another experience that compares to playing these songs on the soil and amongst the people in whom my music first found its home and springboard two decades ago. I am so grateful to have spent my life making music, and hope that this night is a special and moving experience for anyone and everyone who has been part of giving me this gift by supporting my music for so long.”

In episode nine of the new season of INTROS, which you can watch above, Lines and Fraser explore life and music in a thoughtful conversation.

Lines recently shared one final taste of her debut album before the full thing arrives on June 7th.

Titled “Wayside”, Lines’ third and final album single is about “the journey of facing obstacles and uncertainties, urging against complacency and not settling for the easy path… It’s a reminder to stay strong, keep fighting, and hold onto hope, even when things get tough.”

And it could be a big week for Lines, with the singer-songwriter nominated for Best Pop Artist at the 2024 Aotearoa Music Awards, which makes its return this Thursday, May 30th following its 2023 hiatus.
