WED 8 June –   KREEFTEGANG EP Launch // Hanru Niemand

// The songs on Kreeftegang are timeless and tell tales of a time one wishes that Gert Vlok Nel would write just one more poem, a cold winter’s night sky resembling the dotted feathers of an African guinea fowl, and the story of a reporter’s ball point pen. Hanru’s writing style and melodies paint each song on Kreeftegang a different shade of beautiful and honest. Afrikaans folk music fans and those following the underground scene will know that Hanru Niemand flies under the radar. However, this incredibly talented singer-songwriter from the Boland has been making a name for himself in less commercial music circles and boasts with a cult-like following ranging from the Cape region to Northern territory. //

FRI 17 JuneThe WINTYR & Paige Mac LIVE

// Consisting of songwriter and frontwoman Evelyn Hart, Tristan Carmicheal (synth, piano & guitars) and Brendyn Rossouw (percussion), the group was formed in studio as they came together to write material and produce tracks for Evelyn’s solo album. The collaboration resulted in a significant progression in sound and energy, characterised by ethereal vocals, soaring synths and warlike oriental-inspired percussion. Combined with a story-teller’s depth, The WINTYR’s music has been described as cinematic & emotive, eliciting comparisons to the music of London Grammar, The Naked & Famous, M83 and Sigur Rós. Following two years of work, an album was born. ‘Fury’, had its worldwide online debut on the 18th of November reaching no.1 on the electronic charts for iTunes Africa on its first day of release. 2016 has thus far seen the band performing to a sold out crowd of 7000 people at Kirstenbosch Garden’s Summer 2015,Sunset Concerts, as well as confirming dates for their first European tour. //

// Paige Mac began capturing the attention of Cape Town audiences by playing gigs at ‘Obviously Armchair’, ‘Cape to Cuba’ and ‘Zula Bar’. They placed 2nd in the “Battle of the Bay” competition and have opened for Natasha Meister, Josie Field and the band ‘Son of 1000’. Inspired by the likes of Adele, Amy Winehouse Nina Simone, Nat King Cole and Freshly Ground, Paige writes all the songs herself. Having first picked up a guitar at age 9, Paige has long been using pain, emotion and vulnerability to write deeply personal songs. //
