It has been close to three years since the release of Lucy Kruger’s debut album and her emergence on the South African music scene. The growth in these years, due to relentless touring and collaborations with various artists, has resulted in a new avenue for the artist – one of colourful soundscapes, dreamy melodies and primal rhythms, while still staying true to her roots of acoustic folk and her honest way with words.
Lucy is currently working a new album with The Lost Boys in which she hopes to further explore her growing sound of psychedelic folk laced with dream pop.

Johanesburg based musician Julian Redpath is a special talent playing his own brand of Ghost Folk. Strongly influenced by the lineage of finger-style guitar playing that takes in Bob Dylan, Nick Drake and Fionn Regan. Julian weaves a spell with his hands and voice that draws the listener deeper and deeper into his tales of love, searching, family and the land of his birth.
The Mail & Guardian describes Julian’s debut full length album “Maiden Light” as “one of the most assured and exemplary folk albums to come out of South Africa in recent memory. An album with broad vision and influence.”
