Secondary school band Until Aut- umn impressed judges at the Rockquest Wellington final at the Wellington Opera House on July 12.The five-piece melodic rock band placed second out of 12 entries in the band category, com- peting against student musicians from the Wellington region. They were edged out by Indi- punk-rock band Harbour Lane in the band category. Until Autumn includes Tawa College students Peter Sim, Andrew Chesney, Nathan Est- ment, Dan Cuttriss and Aotea College student James Gill. The band formed more than a year ago and won last year s Roc- kquest Wellington final, lead vocalist James Gill said. Since then, Until Autumn have performed at several music festi- vals, including Parachute and One Sound, and performed with American-based Tonight Alive and Esther Melody Band. Until Autumn performed two songs written by Gill in the regional final, The Poet and Scar. [The Poet] is about how the person was really close to some- one and they liked each other, but never would confess, Gill said. The Scar is about how our experiences make us who we are , he said. The chorus says our scars make us who we are and pain sha- pes our character. Other Porirua students to shine included Aotea College pupil Fin- lay Robertson from band the Green Room. She won the award for women s musicianship. Aotea College band Spectrum won the People s Choice award. Until Autumn received $400 worth of New Zealand Rockshop equipment for placing second.
