New Zealand’s Original Country Gentleman Returns.

John Grenell – the purest voice in New Zealand music – makes a very welcome and long overdue return with his new CD compilation Welcome to My World.

John Grenell’s career in music has spanned 50 years since winning his first talent quest in 1963.

John’s career can be filed under two separate and distinct chapters. The first chapter was as John Hore (his stepfathers surname) when his warm baritone voice captivated our Island nation. John quickly became a household name and released a staggering 17 albums and 24 singles during 1966 – 1973.

This compilation of John’s music highlights the second chapter from 1989 onwards as John Grenell (his mother’s maiden name), by which time he had become an accomplished performer, songwriter and story teller.

His number 1 record ‘Welcome To Our World’ started life as a television advertisement for Toyota in December 1989. After only a few weeks on our screens it soon became an intrinsic part of our culture with John’s immaculate vocals and Murray Grindlay’s lush production over a bed of iconic local footage.
