Vinnie MacDonald - Remedy
New Zealand born, I grew up in an extended family that embraced relatives, friends, foster kids and neighbours alike. I got my first guitar for Christmas aged 8, learned to sing in a church choir, grew up in Kapa Haka (Maori Performing Arts) Groups, writing poetry first then music pieces from the age of 13. Nobody taught me, I just watched and learned, playing by ear. I was terribly shy, content with playing guitar in the background and quietly filling in harmonies where I heard them.

Music took a back seat while work, marriage, mortgages and kids took precedence. One day a couple of years ago I realised my greatest fear was actually my reason for walking this earth. I put down the excuses and picked up a guitar.

I’m just an everyday girl. My life has been hard. Hard because most of it has been lived in my head, inside walls I built, reinforced with fear and hardened with bitterness.

So here I am, on the road to recovery with God, songwriting and music finally understanding this therapy is not just for me, but to be shared with others. Funnily enough, I'm not alone.

About this track...

This song started off being about a specific person. At the end of it, I realised it was everything life controlling and destructive I’d been through. I’d been in this position many times be it with a person, addiction, circumstance, headspace.. There is a remedy. That's another song.
