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.
