Musician I Entertainer | One-Man Band - with an extensive musical repertoire covering popular music of the early '70s, '80s & '90s - pop, rock, country, rock 'n roll, R&B, instrumentals, reggae, soul blues & smooth jazz - mixed up with a pinch of traditional "boeremusiek".


Music Background

I discovered my talent at the age of 11, auditioned for a local talent competition, got the part and won. This was really good for my young ego and I was so proud. On getting my first guitar back then, I began improvising melodies based on what my mind heard. In fact, that is how my music career began to blossom. With years of hard work and total dedication I have evolved into a versatile accomplished musician/entertainer performing in pubs, restaurants, festivals, weddings, corporate functions and private parties, thriving on the spontaneous applause...the feedback I get from my audiences.


Songwriting Achievements

Of my original songs have been recorded by the following local artists - Bianca Le Grange (Idols)JJ Botha (Idols)Natasja Lee (Idols)Shaun Tait (Idols) and Anton Langenegger (Shell Road To Fame). Authentic interpretations of my original songs Lovers TerritoryWhere I Wanna Be and The Test can be auditioned or downloaded at Having come full circle since way back then, I have earned a reputation of being a competent musician and songwriter. My dream as a songwriter is to get my songs recorded by well known international artists.
