Lo-ghost

lo-ghost 2

BOOK NOW

Lo-ghost is a new up-and-coming alt-pop duo from Cape Town. Comprised of Evan Strauss and Shannon Devy, the dual-fronted electronic outfit explores themes of love, loss and the human condition through dark synthesis, deep and danceable electronic beats, and powerful vocal performances. Their fiercely honest song writing utilises accessible pop sensibilities to deliver an affecting and impactful set with a unique and memorable sonic signature. With the release date for their first full-length album slated for July 2017, Lo-ghost entered the scene mid-2016 with a stunning debut video release for “Ghost in a Blood Machine”, the lead single off their debut EP “Mother”. The video, which addresses issues of internalised homophobia, presents a poignant and heart-breaking narrative of the interplay between love
and shame, performed and choreographed by Chester Martinez (FKA Twigs, “Honey 2”) and Devon Marshbank.  The work was picked up and featured by media outlets across the continent.

Lance Herman

Lance Herman 1

BOOK NOW

Lance Herman studied English Literature UCT graduating with an an MA that gave special focus to creative writing.

Following that Lance received a performing arts scholarship at the now ICA (Institute for Creative Arts) at UCT. 

During the scholarship term Lance practiced his performance, music, & literature in a multi-disciplinary art-project called ELIEZER. 

ELIEZER  toured the Grahamstown National Arts Festival.

A breath-taking performance by Lance Herman. It is not often you find a solo project as exhilarating as Eliezer. This really is a rough gem.” – Duminsana Budaza, Cue Newspaper (Grahamstown National Arts Festival – Official Guide)

 I am not qualified to comment on the technical quality of the songs. I can only say that as a lover of music I am moved by them, and struck by the honesty of the lyrics. I have been to three Eliezer shows and each one has been more magical than the last.” ⎯ Matthew Freemantle JRNL.co.za (South African Arts / Culture website)

Lance Herman currently performs as a solo artist.

Collaborating with some of the finest the finest musicians South Africa has to offer, Lance’s live Show is where its 

 Early band Fly Paper Jet performed as the opening artist before NY touring artist Mattisyahu at the CTICC, as well as alongside Soweto String Quartet at Kirstenbosch Summer Festival. Lance has played the Oudshoorn KKNK, Grahamstown National Arts festival with folk-duo Ginsburg & Herman, as well as Fly Paper Jet, and more recently, performed at Rocking the Daisies at the Kloof Wine Estate.

Lance Herman’s debut single Rollercoaster released in 2016 made its way on the 5FM playlist, and follow up Thin Bridge EP recorded at the Red Bull Studios in Cape Town received excellent reviews.

“His live material is rich, honest and ethereal. Approachable and in-depth songwriting is a rarity these days, but Lance manages to ace it – with humility and sincerity on his side. Whilst complex and deeply emotive, adjusted by the support of a bassist and percussionist with his live material, these two tracks differ in their result.

Ride the Waves’ is the mega pop tune- jolly, deliriously happy and connotes a romcom in its purest form (think 500 Days of Summer soundtrack), the track’s melody is playful, lively and radio friendly.

Thin Bridge’ beautifies by an essence that resonates with Lance’s live process. The melody is glorified by its majestic mellow sedation. With twinkles serenading the track through the keys, uplifting the vocals, the composition appreciates the empty spaces and the linear dualities of the chord progressions as well as softer amplification and synth-like sonnets.” Tamara Arden, The Fuss.Co.ZA

While the recorded music and single releases creates a thread of the artist’s current concern, it is the live shows where it all comes to life, do not miss Lance Herman & his band at Cafe Roux on September 5.
