Raised listening to Neil Young and Joan Baez, trained classically at UCT, and with nearly 20 years spent performing around South Africa and Europe, Jennifer Eaves is a musical enigma. Morphing between classical musician, celtic, and Folk story teller, Jennifer has immersed herself in the world of emotive songwriting.
With her 2 previous albums “Braiding the Silence”(2006) and “Land of Lonely”(2011) in her pocket, Jennifer has now released her most recent album “Half of You” which tells stories from the road, the heart, and the home. It will take you on a journey of what it means to be human, to be present in our own lives, and the world around us.
Corporate veteran, Reini has lived in South Africa since childhood. In his other life he is a lawyer. The ingredients of his highly personal renditions range between European roots and a deep love of Africa.
Socio-political commentary, environmental issues and a quest for fairness define his minimalistic lyrics.
We are all rich and poor, black and white.
All the pictures on your wall will end up hanging in my head.
Prisoner set us free – you are who we might be.
They say we crawled out of the ocean, neither fish nor fowl.
They don’t belong to anyone, they are perfect on their own.
He keeps his options open like a can of gasoline.
His album, ‘Leave your light on’, produced by Jonny Blundell, enjoys regular radio airtime. The new album, ‘Memories of Rain’ with Rootspring Music, again produced by Jonny Blundell was launched a few weeks back.
Jenny and Reini have named their show “Travel Together” and will each be promoting their solo albums.
