When I was living in New York a decade or so ago, it seemed Dave Dobbyn was a bit of a soundtrack for the Kiwis we kicked around with. I am sure its a similar experience for many Kiwis overseas. I was not actually a great Dave fan before I went away (too much exposure to DD Smash I think) but I have come to be a fan. Welcome Home is a great song, but this is the song the evokes the best of Dave for me, and the best of New Zealand, that we are there for each other through thick and thin. (or at least we should be….)
And appropriately from the opening night of NZ Music Month last year at Mighty Mighty in Wellington.
