Strawpeople

Mark Tierney and Paul Casserley’s production outfit, the Strawpeople have been a vehicle for many talented kiwi female focalist – with Fiona McDonald, Bic Runga and Stephanie Tauevihi gracing a number of their hit singles. Unfortunately at times their late 90s albums sound a little too close to their contemporaries in massive attack (an obvious comparison), which is not helped by their almost session musician approach to recording songs.
