31 days in Wellington, day 17: 'Battered Old Ship' by LOST BiRD (c) 2016. A beautiful mellow tune about the rougher side of loving somebody.
Environmental superstars by day and incredibly talented musicians by night, Ali and Oliver (aka LOST BiRD) are exemplars of a true Wellington ethic: creative, environmental- and community-conscious legends! Ali's work involves promoting parks, activity, and well-being in Wellington (see more at www.wellington.govt.nz/ParksWeek)
, and he is the genius behind the hidden gardens that were the inspiration for today's 31 days in Wellington painting. Oliver does excellent work with Sustainable Coastlines (www.sustainablecoastlines.org
31 days in Wellington is proud to feature LOST BiRD as the 17th day in a series of 31 tracks by Wellington bands and musicians over March 2016.
100% of the proceeds from sales of this track go to Kaibosh (www.kaibosh.org.nz
