IT START'S WITH -

An endless passion for music, for voices,
for discovery, for people, for life.

Past…

A love for music started at a very young age and the first band I started was a punk band ‘Higgajon’ at age 15. The band played a festival held in Welkom opening up for Squeal, Springbok Nude Girls and Boo. This was enough to give me a taste of performing my own songs and I knew that is what I wanted to do with my life. After school I left to pursue music and started playing some acoustic shows in and around JHB. Always working on the live show and song writing is something I love to drive hard on work on.

  • I also worked in the music industry alongside Darryl Torr (Openroom Productions) & Peter Lacey (Musketeer Records)
  • One of my song ‘Horizon’ will be featured in an upcoming South African film.
  • I have written songs for and been the ‘front man’ of bands like: Higgajon, Surreal, The City Wide & Titus.
  • I have also performed with and opened up for some of the great SA artists like Prime Circle, Matthew Mole, Gangs of Ballet, Boo, Springbok Nude Girls & Albert Frost.

I officially started looking at pursuing a solo career in 2014 but did it in a very small scale. It was something that was a long time coming and in January 2017 I officially launched my solo career.

With some radio play and some great shows performed and to come… as a solo artist things truly have begun…

It has been sometime coming and after many incredible memories in the music industry I knew it was time to properly pursue my solo career. January 2017 was the birth of this…

I have been writing for a while now and will be going into studio and releasing an EP and first single in March 2018. I cannot wait to get some new music out there and I am thankful to all who have been a part of this with me.

Working hard on the live show both on my solo(acoustic) and full band shows. Writing and recording. Performing live. This has been 2017 and the start of something I feel truly excited about. So it’s GO go GO but here’s to amazing shows, songs and stories to come…
