A true Rock ‘n Roller at heart, Botha is probably one of the finest guitarists this country has ever produced.

Jack Hammer has seen many, many members come and go in it’s 33 year history, but it’s founder, the legendary Piet Botha alias the ‘Hammer’, is still rocking steady to this day.   They will be touring the Western Cape in April to release Piet’s new Afrikaans album ‘Die Middernagtrein’.

Native Young 2

BOOK NOW

When asked how he would describe Native Young –  creator of the project Yannick says, “It’s a constantly evolving tapestry of culture, emotion and melody”. Formed in the garage of a Gugulethu marimba maker in 2014 – this brotherhood is blurring lines and breaking cultural barriers through their own distinct  brand of ‘Kasi pop’.

With members stretching from Khayelitsha to Spain – Native Young is an independent collective hosting a menagerie of rotating talent and eclectic taste. Their music itself is focused on returning to the grass roots of pop, raw African rhythm and simple storytelling. It’s this simplicity that has provided the group with a vehicle for deeper cultural exploration both musically and spiritually. Often fusing English, Xhosa, Sotho and Zulu lyrics in sweeping anthemic choral arrangements – Native Young certainly is an ode to African heroes like Umoja, Super Rail Band and Marumo – along with a melodic nod to western contemporaries like the Beatles. 

June 2016 saw the release of Native Young’s debut LP ‘Kings’ – a unique blend of acoustic African sound mixed with electronic sensibilities and listed as one of the top 20 South African albums of 2017 by indie music blog Texx and The City. The group has also held successful performances at prestigious international festivals like Lake of Stars in Malawi, Les Escales in France and an opening slot at Fusion festival Germany. 

As for the future, the collective will be focused on touring both locally and internationally as well as writing tracks for their next full length album, set to be a conceptual journey into the heritage of African disco and traditional Mbaqanga. Music is that ephemeral expression that seems to connect us all and It’s this sentiment that boldly shines in the raw and colourful tale of Native Young.

lucy kruger and the lost boys

BOOK NOW

Lucy Kruger is a musician and songwriter.

Since the release of her debut album Cut those Strings™ in 2013 she has toured extensively both locally and internationally, collaborating with a number of different artists on various projects. She is one half of dream noise duo, Medicine Boy.

Her solo project focuses on the bare bones of the songs, drawing on her folk roots.

Her performance is honest and intimate, revealing a child-like curiosity towards the darker elements of sound and subject matter.

In 2014 she put together her current band, The Lost Boys, which includes Andre Leo, Werner von Waltsleben, Lucas Swart and Calvin Siderfin.

They released a self-titled EP in 2015 in which they first started exploring the psychedelic folk/dream pop that has come to define their sound.

Summer’s Not Simple is the first full length album from Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys.

The album is a quiet conversation/conjuring expressed with a single voice and a sea of guitars.

It is a quiet call to the wild;

an attempt to keep the soft animal alive.

The sound drifts between the bareness of the acoustic guitar and the darker, psychedelic approach of the band.

The Lost Boys have been working with Lucy for a number of years and have become her sonic sub-conscious. Their instruments swell, collide and collapse around her to create the strange yet familiar landscape of the album.

Most of the songs were written in a small spare room in the summer of 2016, workshopped with the band in the autumn and recorded in the winter at Digital Forest Studios with Dave Langemann.

South Africa’s first season of The Voice SA in 2016 inspired many people to break out of their comfort zones and risk pursuing music as a career. Craig Lucas (24) from Elsiesrivier in Cape Town is a graduate in Economics and Politics at UCT, but despite a promising career ahead of him in the corporate world, Craig has always secretly loved singing. He made a promise to his mother that he would finish his degree first before staring on a road to music, and boldly took the plunge to come to The Voice SA, despite never having sung in front of so many people before. His blistering version of The Animals House of the Rising Sun was enough for all four of the coaches to press their buzzers and despite some serious pleas, Craig chose Kahn Morbee the first coach to turn for him as his coach.

The singer went on to win the coveted title in the shows second edition and Craig immediately signed a lucrative record deal with Universal Music.

Fast forward 6 years, and you have one of the most uniquely talented musicians to come onto the scene in South Africa. With unbelievable abilities with both the guitar and keyboard, supplemented by an incredibly versatile and toned voice, Richard has the makings of being a big star both locally and abroad.

As a writer, he has grown into a force to be reckoned with penning some songs that are worthy of classic status. His debut offering “Middle Ground” released on the 7th of October 2016.

 Richard describes the album as a diverse album sonically but at the same time the message throughout remains similar and the core sound of the album is consistent and identifiable.

“The goal of this album was to be as true to who I am as a person as possible. The goal was to make music that I believe in, because I feel like if you believe in what you are doing, others will believe in it to. I never want to be putting on an act.”

A prolific performer and a quintessential purveyor of cool, Richard is a man of many talents including corporate and stage shows in addition to his sometimes electric and sometimes haunting live performances.

He is currently working on his second body of work and is aiming to have new releases later in 2018.
