Stoker Vinyl

BOOK NOW

With their brand of honest, dirty rock ‘n roll, Stoker has made their presence known with heavily distorted guitars, bass and pounding drums that drive the melodic intensity of their songs.

Stoker is made up of two sets of brothers hailing from two small towns. Chris and Jurgen ‘Borrie’ Bornman are from Rawsonville and Morgan and Redge O’Kennedy are from Malmesbury. Both of the older brothers imparted their passion for rock ‘n roll onto their younger brothers.

Chris and Borrie originally kicked off as a 3-piece with drummer Joe Theron releasing their first single Stuck in the Alcohol together. In 2013 the O’Kennedy brothers joined Stoker, adding to the dose of vim and vigor.

The guys quickly established themselves on the local live scene and they kicked into high gear in 2014 with the release of their EP, Fox in a Hole.

With this release and Stoker’s revered live performances, they seamlessly became the band everybody likes or wants to be like.

Festivals caught wind of this exciting band, which led to stellar sets at Oppikoppi (2014, 2015), Up the Creek (2015, 2016), Ramfest (2014), Synergy Live (2011, 2014) and Zeegunst (2015).

The success of their singles Evil Shaker, Take a Stab and A Stranger Throne triggered the recording of their full length self-titled debut album.

Stoker’s self-titled album was released at the end of January 2017 and the first single from the album, Forever Drive, was premiered on 5FM’s Hamman Time show.

This debut album garnered great reviews and shows the listener exactly who Stoker is – a class act with a pure love for rock, setting new standards and breathing new air into rock music.

BOOK NOW

Nomawethu (Nhoza) Sitsholwana is a singer/songwriter in a genre she calls ‘traditional African fusion’, which personifies blues, jazz and traditional African music. She was born in a small Eastern Cape village outside King William’s Town and now resides in Cape Town.

Nhoza, who proudly calls herself unolali, meaning ‘village girl’, uses a natural skill to combine her deep-seated traditional African harmonies with strong blues/rock influences that she picked up from her years on the Capetonian music scene.

In 2002, Nhoza left the village with her parents and moved to the big city of Cape Town where she met up with a wonderful vocalist from Gugulethu, named TitNhozaTira and a keyboard player naNhoza Yeye. “They trained me on how to work with a live band and trusted me with harmonies since I had the choir background.” Her first show was at Maningburg Jazz Cafe at the Waterfront – not bad for someone still in high school.

Roots Grown Deep to name a few, and has also worked with the Vuyan Dance Company on their themed performance (Sophiatown) in Johannesburg.

She has travelled extensively around South Africa, Namibia, Malawi, Kenya, Zimbabwe and Mozambique and for the last 10 years served as front-woman for her own band Black South Easter.

Now, at the ripe age of 31, this unolali is ready to spread her wings as a solo artist and share her love of music with the world.

With her wide vocal range, beautifully developed into the rich, soulful blues/jazz sound she radiates on stage today, Nhoza’s early days in the church choir seem like a lifetime ago, but she still recognizes this vital part of her history as a springboard for her musical career. She has put together a band of brass, bass, drums and keys to accompany her unique genre, although she regularly performs as a solo or duo act.

From singing in jazz clubs at the age of 15, Nhoza would go on to craft a musical career of note, sharing the stage with the créme of Southern African blues artists like Richard Pryor, Riaan Smit, Dale Collins, Doc John, James Kibby,Sannie Fox, Guy Collins, Ann Jangle and many more.
