ELOCOL magazine October edition writes

With nearly twenty artists on the LMM books, Shirley says she takes the time to get to know the musicians on another level and with the focus of LMM being a community based club around New Zealand, its already creating a positive effect.

“I love seeing people fulfill their dreams and I love making a difference in what I do. If you can touch someone through the words of a song, as opposed to you as a person, you don’t have to like that (genre) of music, but I can admire where it came from,

“It’s not just about the music, it’s about the people.” says Shirley





 A word from our sponsor and founder of Local Musicians Music and The LMM Network. Merry Christmas and have a fabulous New Year. I wish you all the best in the coming weeks and look forward to bringing you new sounds and experiences in the new year! Thank you for all of your support in making 2018 a very cool year for local music throughout New Zealand. Highlights include the release of volume 4 compilation album, Scott MCB filmed and released two music videos, Nate Kruse was a finalist in the Smoke Free Rock Quest for 2019, Ron Cribb has gone onto speaking roles for TV movies and sitcoms, Iveta & Simone are well on the way to releasing their second single and EP, many of you have been on the Dionne Show and had reviews by Muzic.net.nz thanks to Lisa Jones, we have all enjoyed performing at The LMM Network gigs and concerts including every Friday night at The Rocker Box in Thames. Lots of great covers bands now have regular work as a result of the work done by Shirley Howe founder of Local Musicians Music. Most importantly we have forged a lasting impression for New Zealand music and during 2019 will expand into Australia. 2019 might see a collaboration album of songwriters from both New Zealand and Australia widening our reach and the possibility of radio airplay ad lots more streaming opportunities. Well done team and thank you to all our friends, families and fans who have encouraged you all to have fun with music and dream big, succeed and excel. Keep up the good work and see you late January.
