The New Zealand Music Hall of Fame is a figurative hall of fame dedicated to noteworthy musicians from New Zealand.

The hall was created in 2007 by Recorded Music NZ (then known as the Recording Industry Association of New Zealand (RIANZ)) and the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA).[1] Two inductions are made into the hall each year,[2] one at the APRA Silver Scroll Awards, decided by APRA, and the other is the winner of the Legacy Award at the New Zealand Music Awards (NZMA), picked by Recorded Music NZ.[3] The Hall of Fame has plans to hold a gala dinner to induct larger numbers of artists.[4]

As of September 2016, 20 inductions have been made into the hall, five of which include women. The Exponents frontman Jordan Luck has been inducted twice, first as the inaugural inductee at the 2007 APRA Silver Scroll Awards and again with his band The Exponents at the 2015 New Zealand Music Awards. The most recent APRA inductee was singer-songwriter Moana Maniapoto, who was inducted at the 2016 APRA Silver Scroll Awards, and the next Recorded Music NZ inductee will be Bic Runga, due to be inducted at the 2016 New Zealand Music Awards.

Eligibility[edit]

To be eligible for induction in to the Hall of Fame, the artist must have released a work or achieve another significant professional milestone at least 20 years prior. They must also have shown musical excellence in their career. Also considered is the significance and influence and the impact of the artist's work on New Zealand music.[5]

Award[edit]

Both the APRA and the Recorded Music NZ inductees receive a frame certificate to mark their induction as well as the Hall of Fame "soundshell", created by sculptor Jim Wheeler. The Recorded Music Inductees also receive the Legacy Award which is represented as a platinum Tui trophy.[4]
