' Songwriter Nigel Martinez Trentham musician Nigel Martinez wowed audiences at the national Smokefreerockquest concert last Saturday. His band The Velvet Regime won the best song award for its inspi- rational track There is a light. The group was selected from more than 800 young artists across New Zealand to attend the competition final in Hamilton. Along with five other bands, they performed for eight minutes in front of industry judges. Martinez, lead vocalist for the group and a Naenae College student, wrote the song two years ago, but says he still performs it live because it is a personal favourite. I think the judges liked it because it has a really simple meaning that everyone can relate to. There is a light behind everything we are sad about. When I write lyrics it s always how it relates to my life. It was just meeting people who appreciate life. The Smokefreerockquest aims to motivate young musicians and show them the potential of their music careers. Many successful groups, including The Phoenix Foundation, The Feelers and The Black Seeds, performed at the event early in their careers. The Velvet Regime was awarded $500 and the chance to record a song in a professional music studio. Martinez says they were nervous before the show, but were pleased with their performance. On the way up to Hamilton it was really nerve-racking, but once you get to know all the other bands it really went away after a while. I think it went pretty good because the whole goal was to play our best and everything else was just a bonus. The band members describe their sound as alternative rock with an atmospheric touch. Martinez founded the group two years ago and says he found their name in a dictionary. It was really just because we were looking through a dictionary for the most interesting words we could find. It was just meant to be tempor- ary, but it just stuck.
