In 1998 ‘Drive’ won several ‘Tui’ Awards including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Vocal Performance and Best Songwriter. She also took home the coveted Silver Scroll Award for her songwriting.
‘Drive’ went on to sell an unprecedented 7 x Platinum copies, making Bic the biggest selling local artist in New Zealand history.
