Mandy Pickering

Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand


Musician, Singer, Pianist, Entertainer


My singing career was launched with her winning performance on TVNZ's 'Stars In Their Eyes'. Following my TV performance I released my self-titled album and I am now performing regularly at events around the country, either as a soloist accompanying myself on the grand piano, or as part of a trio or with my full band. I have recently toured in Australia and New Zealand with the inspiring 'Heart Strings' guitars which raised $111,000 for the Christchurch Arts Community.

Work History

My marketing role involves creating marketing initiatives and concepts, design and co-ordination of all marketing material, networking and building relationships with business partners, managing of advertising, website management, design client newsletters and database management.


Heart Strings

My father in law, Bruce Pickering, with the help of Jason hand crafted a series of guitars using timber from buildings that fell in the Canterbury Earthquakes. These seven guitars are not only beautiful instruments but a piece of arts and a piece of Christchurch's history. My band and I toured around New Zealand performing and raising awareness of the Heart Strings project and then the guitars were auctioned to the highest bidders and raised an incredible $111,000 which my family and I donated back to the Christchurch Arts Community. Thank you to all the local businesses and people that supported this worthy project. An eighth guitar was also built - named 'Kia Kaha' - and was donated to the Canterbury Museum.
