Waihi College can be proud of many of its students and Josaye Frew and Tyler Tamati are no exception.
The Year 10 girls love music and have been honing their craft and gaining experience at a variety of events during the year.
They took out the Senior section of the Waihi's Got Talent competition held at the Waihi Memorial RSA in September and competed at the Smoke Free Rock Quest in Hamilton this year as well.
Josaye said the performance at the rock quest wasÂ a hard thing for her to do because her loved friend Emilie Silberer was killed in a motor vehicle accident just the day before. She said they'd been at soccer and were happy and laughing together, so the news Emilie had gone was a total shock for her. In the end she decided that it was appropriate to perform at the Smoke Free Rock Quest and dedicate the performance the Waihi College band Lex Nostra did to Emilie.
Lex Nostra is an interesting name for a college band and when they had to come up with a name on the spur of the moment and couldn't think of anything, they settled on part of the Waihi College school motto 'Lex Noistra Fides'.
Josaye brought her guitar into the studio and the girls sang a song Josaye had written for the combined schools 'Turangawaewae' event. Called 'Coming Home' the song has all the elements that a radio worthy pop song has. A catchy reggae style beat, harmonies and even a touch of rap would stand alongside any pop song heard on the airwaves today if the girls had the opportunity to record it in a professional studio.
Gold FM wishes them all the best with their music and we encourage them to aim high. Good luck girls.
