Glen Moffatt is a New Zealand country music singer-songwriter who relocated to Brisbane, Australia, in 2002. Moffatt was born in Hastings and raised in Napier. He was a newspaper journalist before moving to Auckland at the end of 1991. New Zealand music historian John Dix wrote of New Zealand music in the 1990s, "It wasn't all alt.rock, hip hop and hard rock in the '90s. Country rock survived with recording acts like the Coalrangers, Glen Moffatt, Ritchie Pickett, the Renderers and the Waltons. The most successful were the Warratahs, signed to Pagan." Moffatt's 1995 debut album Somewhere in New Zealand Tonight was described by New Zealand Herald music critic Graham Reid as the "birth of a Kiwi classic". It was a finalist in country album of the year at the 1996 New Zealand recording industry awards. Moffatt was also a finalist in the rising star and songwriter of the year categories. In 1998 he released follow-up A Place to Play, of which Reid wrote, "Moffatt has written his name large again and is, after two strong showings, a talent too big to ignore". In 2001, as Glen Moffatt Band, came his final New Zealand album If That's What You Want.
