Jay..

 

In 1996 Jay started his career in musical theatre.  After that he entered the commercial marked by teaming up with well know South African singer Joe Niemand.  His most recognizable achievement before starting his solo career in 2008 was being the lead singer for top South African boy band Eden. He is now a solo artist and absolutely awesome on stage.

The former South African boy band EDEN's lead singer, Jay du Plesis (Jay), has returned with his second solo album, Dis Hoe Ons Rol (#DisHoeOnsRol). To my surprise, this album has great potential to be heard across radio stations that play Afrikaans music. The entire album is Afrikaans, and easy on the ears. The track "Superhero" features his former band EDEN, where they run through the various Marvel comic heroes.

 

Dis Hoe Ons Rol also features another popular Afrikaans singer, Steve Hofmeyr. Jay's melodic voice and Hofmeyr's raspy voice all in all, the duet compliments the two singers' voices well. All in all I was really impressed by the quality of the songs, the lyrics of the music and the overall flow of the album. The album has a positive message about love and relationships. This is an Afrikaans album that will be enjoyed by any person whom appreciates the Afrikaans language!

Elvis Blue

 

One simply has to listen to the hauntingly beautiful Things My Father Said or Lighthouse or Save Me, or any of his original compositions for that matter, to realise that you are in the company of greatness.

 

 

The gifted musician’s journey started when he was a young boy, singing in school choirs, and busking in the streets of Joburg and Scotland. His one and only goal was to make and perform music. After a stint overseas as a street musician, Elvis returned to South Africa where he decided to study contemporary music. Elvis’ success is due to years of hard work, passion and commitment, and even though the path has been long and sometimes never ending, the real journey has only begun now.

WILLEM EN MONIQUE

 

 

Wie is Willem Botha? Die vermaaklikheidsbedryf het met rasse skrede gegroei die dag toe Willem Botha sy toetrede gemaak het. In 2006 soengroet hy Idols-aanhangers, en intussen het hy tienduisende van sy eie bewonderaars bygekry met twee bekroonde albums en groot film-,teater- en TV-rolle
agter sy naam.

 

Op 27 is die meeste jong Suid-Afrikaners gelukkig met ’n kwalifikasie en, selfs beter, ’n vaste werk om hulle drome te help bou. Op hierdie ouderdom het Willem pas teruggekeer vanaf Europa waar hy geskiedenis gemaak het as die eerste Afrikaanse kunstenaar wat deelgeneem het aan die merkwaardige Eurovision Song Contest.

 

 

MoniQue 

As deel van die 4Werke supergroep en vreeslik talentvol daarby saam – sal MoniQue jou asem wegslaan met haar ongelooflike stem as solo kunstenaar.

 

 

Gesout in die industrie met 'n reeks benoemings en toekennings agter haar naam.

 

 

Met treffers soos Pienk Champagne, Ek Val Vir Jou, Liewe Land en Ek Kan Jou Nie Vergeet Nie sal MoniQue seker maak dat jy wegstap van 'n vertoning met 'n melodie in jou hart, net soos sy in jou hart gaan inkruip.

KARLIEN VAN JAARSVELD

 

Karlien van Jaarsveld is die oudste van 3 kinders. Sy is die ouer suster van die reeds bekende Bobby van Jaarsveld. Karlien is nie ‘n nuwe gesig in die musiekbedryf nie.

Sy het 3 jaar gelede begin om saam met Bobby op te tree as sy kitaarspeler en backing vocalist. Sy het ook ‘n duet saam met Bobby gedoen op sy eerste album. Karlien het so 2 jaar gelede besluit om haar eie ding te doen en het toe ‘n rockband gestig, REVOLUSIE. Sy was dus die stigter en hoofsanger van die groep, REVOLUSIE. Rockmusiek was maar altyd in haar bloed en sy het die 2 jaar saam met REVOLUSIE beskou as een van die beste leerskole ooit.

Karlien het egter in Oktober 2008 besluit om solo te gaan met haar loopbaan en sy het REVOLUSIE verlaat.

Johan Vorster Songs het Karlien as kunstenaar ingeneem. Karlien se album “Jakkals Trou Met Wolf Se Vrou” is uitgereik. Twee videos is ook geskiet van “Beter as Liefde” en “Jakkals Trou met Wolf se Vrou”. Karlien se album is alreeds vir ‘n hele paar weke onder die Top 5 verkopers op die DKNT ranglys. Die album se verkope het ook Platinum Status bereik.

DJ Ossewa

 

 

DJ Ossewa, ‘n alom bekende huishoudelike naam in die Afrikaanse Musiekbedryf, is terug met ‘n nuwe CD en nuwe vertoning tot groot genot en vreugde vanaf hulle getroue ondersteuners.


Hierdie manne het hulself reeds deur-en-deur bewys as een van die groot suksesstories van die Suid-Afrikaanse musiekbedryf. Die storie van Daniel Jakobus van Ossewasrus en sy ewe bekende buurman “Leeuboer” vermaak gehore al vir jare.

 

Dit is dus geen wonder dat die nuutste toevoeging tot die groep presies dieselfde doen nie. Die plaaslike self gekwalifiseerder vearts: Vet Frik het besluit om sy praktyk op Ossewarus te verlaat en sy kragte ook in te span vir ‘n nuwe, vars en onvergeetlike vertoning. Die eindresultaat is natuurlik weereens ‘n wenresep wat gehore, oud en jonk, laat huil van die lag en sorg vir ure se vermaak.


Met hul Progressiewe Alternatiewe Boere Afrikaanse Musiek het DJ Ossewa ‘n mark en genre van hul eie geskep en kraai hulle koning. Ossewa-woema is hulle eie, baie persoonlike nismark. En die groep se gewildheid groei daagliks.
Hul nuwe CD “Briljantjie” is landswyd beskikbaar in alle musiekwinkels en is weereens ‘n groot treffer met liedjies soos: “Briljantjie”, “Laat die wiele rol “en “Garries”, om maar net ‘n paar te noem.

ANDERS ORKES

 

ANDERS is ‘n afrikaanse pop/country duo wat bestaan uit man en vrou, Wynand & Lindi Delport. Dink “Lady Antebellum” en “Taylor Swift” maar met oorspronklike, Afrikaanse lirieke waarmee jy vinnig saam sal sing!

ANDERS het groot opslae gemaak met hulle eerste album, “Dink Leef Klink”. Met ‘n vars, nuwe gospel klank was dit iets waaraan die industrie nie gewoond was nie, maar definitief verwelkom het met ope arms. Binne ‘n jaar is die album genomineer vir ‘n Ghoema toekenning en optredes regoor SA, sowel as ‘n optrede by Gospel Skouspel. Hulle video en herskepping van “Ons Koning kom” is vandag nog ‘n gunsteling!

Na ‘n baie suksesvolle debuut album, is die besluit gemaak om ‘n album te skryf oor die liefde. Wynand & Lindi is immers ‘n getroude paartjie en het baie materiaal gehad om oor te skryf. Die eerste lied, “Mooi vir my” is opgeneem, en saam met die musiekvideo vrygestel. Die video en lied was dadelik ‘n treffer en Anders is gekontak deur Select Musiek (Sony). Kontrak is geteken en die #liefdesverhale album is vrygestel begin Oktober 2013 met baie optredes en musiekvideo’s wat volg in 2014.

“Die pad”, ‘n “country” duet is ook gekies as deel van die fliek “Boer soek vrou” se klankbaan en Anders sal lewendig optree met die fliek se premier in Johannesburg en Kaapstad. ANDERS maak slegs gebruik van die industrie se top musikante en het ‘n talent om enige huidige treffer te herskep. Met hulle vars talent, oorspronklike liedjies en energie kan jy seker wees dat daar nog baie van ANDERS te siene gaan wees.

VAUGAN GARDINER

 

Vaughan Gardiner het homself al gevestig as suksesvolle musikant, akteur en musiekvervaardiger, maar tog is hy nog ver van waar hy wil wees… sy drome is groot.

Alhoewel hy gebore is in Sandton, Johannesburg op 14 April 1987, het Vaughan skoolgegaan en groot geword in die Kaap, waar hy gewoon het saam met sy pa Vivian, ma Ophelia en jonger broer, Selwyn. Eers na hy sy B.Rek graad verwerf het aan die Universiteit Stellenbosch in 2008, en sy debuut album vrygestel het in 2009, het hy Centurion toe getrek waar sy beroep behoorlik vlam gevat het. Maar Vaughan se liefde vir musiek het nie oornag geblom nie, dit kom al van kleins af.

Nadat hy betrokke was by die vervaardiging van sy eie album, het Vaughan kans gekry om op ander kustenaars se albums te vervaardig insluitende Izak Davel, Riaan Grobler, Lianie May, Jannie Moolman en Bok van Blerk. In 2011 begin hy as vervaardiger by Sean Else se studio. Hy skryf ook graag vir ander kunstenaars, onder andere Lianie May, Karlien van Jaarsveld, Riaan Grobler, Izak Davel en Jomari Greyling.

Vir sy debuut album het Vaughan ʼn hele paar nominasies en toekennings losgeslaan. Hy is genomineer as Beste Nuweling by die Huisgenoot Tempo Toekennings sowel as die Rapport Vonk Toekennings; sy eerste “single” – Gooi jou arms om myis genomineer in die kategorie Beste Liedjie, ook by die Vonk Toekennings; hy ontvang ʼn toekenning vanaf Vaal Music Radio as een van 2009 se top tien kunstenaars; hy ontvang die 2010 MK Award in die kategorie Beste Solo, en is vir dieselfde kategorie genomineer in 2011. Maar Vaughan se (accolades) stop nie by musiek nie – in 2010 vertolk hy sy eerste hoofrol in Deon Opperman seJock of the Bushveld-The Musical, en ontvang ʼn Naledi Theatre Awards nominasie as beste nuweling vir hierdie rol.

KURT DARREN

 

Kurt Darren - SMALL

 

Kurt Darren is in Pretoria gebore en het aan die Hoërskool Lyttelton Manor gematrikuleer. Hy het sy besondere sangtalent by sy ma geeerf. Op skool het Kurt aan verskeie musiekspele deelgeneem, en meen dat hy al van jongs af in musiek belang gestel het.

Wat min mense weet is dat Kurt ten volle tweetalig is, te danke aan sy pa wat Afrikaanssprekend en sy ma wat Engelssprekend is. Sy talent as liedjieskrywer en sanger in beide tale, het sy gretigheid om in albei tale te vermaak, verwesenlik.

Na matriek is Kurt weermag toe en doen hy sy basies in Walvisbaai. Hy was ook deel van die weermag se vermaaklikheidsgroep . So toer hy vir n jaar saam met die orkeslede van die weermag, en besef dat hy sy lewenslange droom, om 'n sanger te word, wil najaag. Hy word toe afgeraai deur mense wat sê dat hy nie 'n bestaan kan maak deur te sing nie.

Hy probeer toe maar 'n paar ander beroepe, soos om 'n wildbewaarder te word in die Kruger Nasionale Wildtuin, (die natuur lê hom baie na aan die hart) en tree ook as toergids op. Met meeste van sy familie was daardie tyd in die boubedryf, en hy beproef di took , maar nie vir lank nie. Kurt besluit toe om voltyds te begin sing.

Dertien jaar lank het Kurt balladesanger, roerloos op 'n stoeltjie met 'n mikrofoon gesit by korporatiewe geleenthede, kroeë en ander klein kuierplekke. Van die een dorp na die volgende, het Kurt sy eie klankgereedskap vervoer, afgelaai, opgestel, afgestel en weer opgelaai. Hy het ook sy eie klank gedoen. Kurt is trots om te noem dat hy deur sy sangloopbaan al deel was van 'n paar groepe. Hierdie sluit in, onderandere: "Deep Blue" en "Keep Your Day Job".

Hy het altyd geweet dat sy deurbraak sal kom. Toe tree hy drie maande lank op 'n passasierskip op, verloor 'n paar kilogram en sny sy hare (vir die wat nie weet nie, Kurt se hare was skouerlengte vir n hele ruk). En toe is hy reg en energiek vir "Meisie Meisie" toe dit eensklaps oor sy pad kom in 2002.
