Shayne P Carter live at the James Cook

From RNZ Music, 1:15 pm on 20 August 2016

Shayne P. Carter plays two of his new songs live on the baby grand piano at the James Cook Hotel restaurant in Wellington.

"Hi there everybody, I'm your piano man for the day, I'll be here all week - actually that's a complete lie - but I probably will be here all week trying to play this song on piano..."

Though he wrote his entire album on a midi keyboard, and recorded it on a grand piano, Shayne P Carter doesn't usually do solo piano performances. Despite his misgivings about our proposition, he nails this hotel restaurant performance in two takes of the songs 'The Waiting Game' and 'Mat'.
