Join us for a spectacular night of storytelling by Michael Lowman and Majozi.
Michael is far from your regular, run-of-the-mill, schooled and bread musician. His story is different. Something penned straight out of the Hollywood-Underdog playbook. At the not-so-tender age of 17, Michael picked up a guitar for the first time. Songwriting came naturally for this John Mayer inspired guitarist and he soon found himself in Los Angeles, heart firmly pinned and exposed.
Not only has he since performed for and supported international stars like Tori Amos and UB40, but he has also shared the stage with African Mega Stars Mafikizolo, when he was asked to open up the 2014 MTV African Music Awards ceremony. His newest album (released October 2016) features renowned South African singer Karlien van Jaarsveld, was play listed on more than 25 stations nationwide, including charting on the JacarandaFM Top 20.
At the age of thirteen, he started to teach …himself guitar, which eventually led to him studying a foundation course in jazz and popular
music at the University of KwaZulu Natal.
He describes his music as being Indie-folk with subtle influences of electro and attributes his faith as one of his musical inspirations.
In 2013, he released his first EP, Marvelous Light, which was recorded and produced by Warren Meyer of Doppler Studios. The album made it to no.9 overall on the South African iTunes chart and no.1 in the singer/songwriter category.
Following the online success and popularity of the EP, his single, The River, was play-listed on 5FM, Kfm and other radio stations across the country. The infectious beat and meaningful lyrics have fans singing along with gusto at all the gigs he has been landing.
Over the past year, Majozi has been steadily climbing the South African music ladder, getting the opportunity to open for Matthew Mole, Gangs of Ballet, Zebra and Giraffe, Mango Groove, Matthew Mole and international artist, Yoav
