Congratulations to Anthonie Tonnon, who has won the 2022 Taite Music Prize for his album Leave Love Out Of This. He told RNZ that the album “is about being part of the first generation growing up in the economic experiment New Zealand launched into during the 1980s”.

The Taite Music Prize “champions the most creative NZ album released annually” according to the Independent Music NZ website.

The Palmerston North City Library holds Tonnon’s album in both LP and CD formats. Have a listen and see if you agree with the judges!
