Chloe Clark This dynamic, vivacious and undeniably talented songstress began her journey into music at a tender age. At 11 years old she had already formed her first band and has been filling the air with her beautiful music and infectious energy ever since.
She has already developed quite a reputation in Durban’s jazz, theatre and corporate entertainment scene, with a string of accomplishments to her name. Chloe has had the privilege of singing at the launching of the Durban July events, singing with the Kwa Zulu Natal Philharmonic Orchestra, being a backup vocalist for Ronan Keating, singing on Majozi’s first EP, as well as performing alongside artists such as Gangs of Ballet, Kyle Duitchman, Joseph Clark, Arno Carstens and many more.  Chloe made her TV debut in 2014 by making it to the Top 30 on Idols SA. More recently, she was part of South Africa’s first season of The Voice South Africa where she was in Kahn’s team (from the Parlotones).  Chloe has also performed internationally in Mauritius, Japan, China and India.
Chloe studied music at the University of KwaZulu Natal and completed her honors in Jazz vocals and vocal technique methods in 2016. In the same year, she released her debut Album which has gained national attention on local radio stations and television shows.
2018 saw the release of her jazz album, ‘She encountered wonderland’. The album is currently making waves among the jazz communities worldwide, adding to her growing international reputation as one of the hot, talented jazz vocalists to look out for!
Chloe draws inspiration from many of her favourite artists, namely London Grammar, Diana Krall, Madeleine Peyroux, Kimbra, Billie Holiday, Immogen Heap.
Maya Spector is a singer-songwriting talent from the jazz, soul music and theatre worlds. She comes from a culturally diverse and artistic family background and a consequence of her upbringing was that she found herself traveling the world from an early age, living in Japan, Swaziland, the USA, and Sweden. Settled in South Africa since 2001, she graduated from the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal in 2009 with a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance & Music Education.
Since then, she has appeared in musicals around the country (My Fair Lady, Jimbo, The Man of La Mancha, The Silence of the Music, RENT!) and she has performed with leading South African jazz and popular artists, as well as performing her original music on the music scene around the country since 2003. Her voice is best described as an old soul, weathered by life and schooled by adversity, yet still very much alive in vocal tone and vibrant in its expression.
Heinrich entered the music industry as a professional singer at the age of 11 as a member of the St George’s Cathedral Choir. He soon became a member of both the Tygerberg Children’s Choir and subsequently, the Pro Cantu Youth Choir. These choirs toured extensively and competed both nationally and internationally. His career spans from solo performances with the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra (under the direction of Bernard Gueller), live performances as lead and backing vocalist for Allou April, Ernie Smith, Wanda Baloyi, The Camillo Lombard Collective, Mynie Grové and recording sessions as lead and backing vocalist for Vusi Khumalo and Ivan Mazuze. He also performed as lead and backing vocalist for international artists such as Jonathan Butler, Kirk Whalum, Oleta Adams, Diana Ross, Bebe Winans, Josh Groban and Mark Fransman’s Strait and Narro. Between 2004 and 2009 he performed as lead vocalist for a Jazz-duo, Trio and Quartet that he had established for live performances. Some of his work is well documented on the following commercially available albums: “Jazz Rendezvous”, “G-Spot Grooves”, Ivan Mazuze’s “Maganda”, Vusi Khumalo’s “Reasons for Seasons”, “Neville D Presents” by Neville Diedericks and Mozambican-born (now South African-based) drummer, composer, arranger and producer, Frank Paco’s, “Buyanini”. Heinrich has released a three-track EP entitled, “Life-Stories – The EP” via various digital distribution platforms. Heinrich currently works as an Audio Engineer, Artist Manager and Booking Agent alongside Composer Pianist and Film Score Composer, Kyle Shepherd and serves a Vocal Coach, Judge and Musical Director for the annual, ‘Shoprite Topstars’ singing competition.

“The Fractals journey really started when I met Ray Adam Morgan. He was drumming for a band called Early Hours at the Brass Bell Restaurant & Bikini Bar in Kalk Bay, and I was helping a friend do sound. We connected straight away, and I still remember driving to Rosebank for the first time and unbeknownst to me I had to get a drum kit in my car. Since then we’ve helped each other grow, and we’ve become best of friends. Ray then introduced me to Stephen de Souza, who I also connected with straight away. People that get along well know that they get along well almost immediately. We bonded over our comments and remarks about Ray’s small nips. Liam Mcdermott is one of my longest standing friends, I have known him since the beginning of high school, and we’ve shared many memories together. He has grown into such an amazing musician and lead guitar player over the past 6 months, that it is truly an honour to have him as part of the band. We all get along really well, so it has worked out so perfectly.” – Jonathan Simons

Stephen Murdoch

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.

BOOK NOW

We are a five piece band living it up in the Mother city i.e. Cape Town, South Africa.

Consisting of a burning saxophonist who fights the daily urge to display his other horn in public, a bassist who is so smooth he can be the peanut butter to your jam, a drummer who in his spare time works as a panel beater and metronome, a lead guitarist who puts the “long,” in “Schlong” and who shreds not only the guitar but also the backing vox, and finally we have a vocalist who, when he finally hits the right note, still fails with the women which he tries to make up for with really average rhythm guitar.

We hope to create something unique for our listeners and hopefully our music will provoke thought, love, criticism, awe and all those feelings that may be associated with being in a dream.

We are nothing without those who listen!
