With her latest album Sportsman of the Year, award-winning Auckland musician Jan Hellriegel also became an author.

She says it's a celebration of life and its foibles, as well as its perfect imperfection – and a tale of grit and never giving up.

Hellriegel plays some new tracks from Sportsman of the Year live in the Auckland studio and talks to Jesse Mulligan about what it's like to tour again.
