Delicate. Raw. Unapologetic. South African born singer-songwriter Jeri Silverman crafts soul-stirring melodies with a percussive folk pop edge. Trading mountains and seas for the skyscrapers of New York City, the concrete sidewalks provided a fertile ground for self-discovery and allowed her innate songwriting talent to flourish. She began writing deep into the heart of sleepless nights. Ploughing the depths of human experience — her songs mine the essence of desire, fear, and a longing to experience oneself fully in this life.

Her latest work, Dear Life, is an album about finding your way. It’s an ode to getting stuck in uncomfortable places, a prayer to unspoken desires, and a fight to discover the fire within. Released this month across all digital platforms, the album has received national airplay across the country. 

The 12-track follow-up to Leaflike unleashes a bolder, more expressive tone that builds on the blend between live acoustic guitar and electronic soundscapes. With influences from artists such as Ani DiFranco, Bjork, Ben Howard and Fleetwood Mac, the album is an ethereal collection of songs that explore the interplay between darkness and light.

Sean is a musician and songwriter, born in the seaside village of Kommetjie. Sean Koch’s rootsy sound is an organic blend of warm, harmony rich vocals with fun-loving country and surf style rhythms.

He recently released an EP ‘Natural Projection’ with inspiration for his sound drawn from artists such as Ben Howard, Xavier Rudd, Angus Stone and Milky Chance.

“Its all about keeping things simple and appreciating the subtle more beautiful things in this life. “

Stephen Murdoch-17

BOOK NOW

Steve Murdoch is a musician based in Cape Town, South Africa. He has been performing in a professional capacity for the last six years. Having formed a band in 2013, namely The Wheel Again alongside fellow musician and friend Otto Bam (currently performing under Oddo Bam), Steve has been a regular on the Western Cape scene.

He played many gigs in Stellenbosch whilst studying there. The Wheel Again’s first gigs were performed as an opening act for Dans Dans Lisa (One of Bouwer Bosch’s projects), and soon thereafter began gaining a following among fellow students. Steve has gone on to perform with the likes of Spoegwolf, Jackal and The Wind, The Young Folks, Oddo Bam, and Mischa Dream Folk to name a few.

Venues played in and around Cape Town include:

– The House of Machines – The Secret Gin Bar – Obviously Armchair – Alexander Bar & Cafe – Aandklas (Stellenbosch) – Cafe Art (Stellenbosch) – Many private functions and weddings

Steve went to Australia in 2016 in the hopes of playing gigs on foreign soil. With a full-time job and not much exposure, he only managed to play one but it was a tick off his bucket-list.

He went into studio late last year in the hopes of producing a Single of one of the crowd-favourites “Tugboat”, but was ultimately dissatisfied with the final product and therefore was reluctant to release.

His social media presence is that of a quirky, low-budget, but heartfelt one. Most of his videos and audio is recorded by cell-phone as he has no means of paying for high-quality recordings. There are, however, promising recording opportunities in the pipeline.

Chris Chameleon in Kat and Wolf

BOOK NOW

Chris Chameleon and Daniella Deysel are Kat & Wolf. This musical project was born from the desire of both these artists to fly freer on the wings of their imagination, with sound, images and costuming in the wilderness outside the confines of their established names.

In Kat & Wolf Chris and Daniella break away from the convention of their respective corpuses and slaughter the holy cows of expectation, the self incarceration of own achievements and the pressures to produce for certain tastes that so often haunt those who make the ridiculous decision to pursue a career in the music business.

Kat & Wolf are not afraid of the darkness, aren’t squeamish at the sight of blood, are serious about playing and play with seriousness. Compositions of sections of die Handwoordeboek van die Afrikanse Taal (HAT), art history books, the electricity of sexuality and the search for the most meaningful exploration of false singing are but some aspects of this unusual concert adventure.

And, of course, Chris usually allows a few random audience requests of their favourites!

After decades spent silencing the South African forests in which she was raised, Ruby Gill hummingbird over the Indian Ocean to hum about violence, joy, privilege and border security to a tolerant Melbourne population. Almost immediately, her piercing lyrics, classically-trained piano-hands and disproportionately massive voice left audiences across the country shaken, transfixed and sometimes a bit hungry.

Meanwhile, from an open fire in a secluded cottage on his parents’ farm in rural Australia, Billy Barker was diving boldly into heartbreak, existential angst and identity with his alt-folk musings. It was impossible not to be mesmerised by his unbridled approach to the guitar beneath biting lyrics that aren’t afraid to cover the pointy ends of life. 

Somewhere between two countries, Ruby Gill collided with Billy Barker at the piano in a flurry of harmonies and heartburn. Here, Magic Coat was born.

Now, with new releases just around the corner, Ruby and Billy are traversing their bold, contemporary approach to folk across the oceans on an exclusive national tour of South Africa – taking new songs and old guitars on the not-so-merry-go-round to somewhere good.

Come along for the ride on The Magic Coat Tour with Ruby Gill, Billy Barker (Aus), live at Cafe Roux with local melancholy songbirds Orah & The Kites.

It is an experiment of soul feeding sounds and his style is best described as avantgarde.
He was classically trained at the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir School under the guidance of Doctor Johann Van Der Sandt who was the main conductor of the choir at the time. Odwa Bongo also received training from Rykie Boeke who was the second conductor of the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir.
In 2010 he was awarded “The Best Tenor Soloist” Award and was chosen to represent South Africa in South Korea with the other members of the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir.
After his best years at the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir School, Odwa was introduced to Jazz in 2012 and in the same year he was chosen to be the vocalist for the Standard Bank School’s Big Band at the Grahamstown Jazz Festival.
He then completed his matric at the prestigious Bridge House School in 2013 and in 2014 he attended The Rainbow Academy where he flourished greatly in his music. Odwa was awarded the “Best Student of the Year” Award in music and was the top student in his class.
Odwa Bongo achieved his Performance Diploma in African Music at the University of Cape Town, in 2017. He was also a member of 2 bands;  the UCT-Ibuyambo (Pan African music ensamble), under the guidance of Dizu Plaatjies and Azanian Aesthetics, a newly formed African music-focused group of 4 young individual artists from the UCT’s African Music department.
In between his studies Odwa performed around Cape Town’s finest clubs and festivals and occasionally went out of the country, representing Cape Town talent, to collaborate with other artists of Framewalk (a German youth programme focussed on creating music, dance and theatre).
Currently Odwa has released one single, Confused, and it was chosen as the BEST SUBMISION in 2017 amongst other great independent artists. Odwa Bongo has also had the opportunity to work.
