daena weeks and well done sun


Daena Weeks is a singer-songwriter from Namibia, exploring a folk & indie rock style. Embarking on a never ending journey of curiosity and discovery inspired by the diversity of artists of our time, her music is earthy, raw and humble as she shares music infused with the essence of soul. Daena has performed at festivals such as The Lake of Stars in Malawi, The Afro Arts Festival in Norway and Rocking The Daisies 2017. Her debut album ‘Sowing Seeds’ is available on Bandcamp and you can follow her on Facebook to keep up to date with her musical whereabouts.
Well Done Sun is a lively experience – a cross-pollination of genres in the 21st century.

Starting as an acoustic duo hailing from Port Elizabeth, front man Hanno took Well Done Sun through a number of different phases and concepts, together with various band members. Keegan Watkins, the other half of the initial duo, was a key member in developing and creating the concept, energy and style of the band.

In 2015, Brett Atkinson came on board playing an integral role as the bands bassist, guitarist, synth-player and co-producer. Together with Hanno and local musicians Tim Edwards and Mel Mwevi, the band recorded their full debut album, We Have Time, at Popsicle Studios in Cape Town. The album will be released later in 2016, preceded by several singles and an EP.
Inspriration is drawn from our experiences, beliefs and the people around us, says Hanno, who is also the singer and guitarist of the band. People are everything.

Further influences include The Kooks, Bombay Bicycle Club, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tame Impala, Jungle and MGMT.

As the band describes it, their music focuses on passive groove. The sentimental approach to song writing creeps into your soul through all the right places. Styles such as psych rock, funk, folk, reggae and jazz are groovily blurred together in a fusion of sound.

The band is buzzing to bring their unique artistry into a new space with their recent move to the Cape. Keep your ear to the ground to catch one their upcoming gigs around Cape Town.
