Jackie Thomas, the Greymouth songstress, has had a whirlwind schedule since winning the hearts and votes of a nation to take the X-Factor NZ title. Since then she has performed before an All Blacks Test, at The Warriors’ Awards, will open for Ollie Murs at his Auckland show, perform iconic songs at the ENZO (Split Enz) shows, and traveled up and down the country for Christmas and summer events together with her band.

Continuing her winning streak, Jackie’s first single went to number 1 and has reached platinum sales, and her number 1 album has gone gold.

Hailing from Palmerston North, 23-year old Benny has had quite the life-changing journey since appearing on X Factor New Zealand as a contestant, going from performing his music in front of small crowds at local cafes to an average of over 480,000 people every Sunday night on television.

From the stage of X Factor to the New Zealand stage of local music, Benny says of his journey so far, “It has been a crazy few weeks but I am stoked to have the chance to release my music after X Factor, it has been a goal of mine for a long time to hit the radio airwaves. I can’t wait to put out more music moving forward and hopefully tour New Zealand too”
