Fruit Vendor is an eclectic Afropop music project from Cape Town, South Africa that fuses elements of ghoema, maskandi, funk, hip hop, RnB, rock and jazz – altogether held together by authentic, meaningful lyrics and a distinct and colourful live show. It’s their mission to share their musical fruit as far and as wide as possible.
The band consists of Josh (lead vocals/keys/acoustic guitar), Adrian (electric guitar). Rosco (bass) and Jason (drums).
In 2018, they won the Barleycorn Music Club’s annual songwriting competition and in 2019 won the best band category in the Stonebear & Mayor Records eMerge Music Competition.
They’re shared stages with David Kramer, Die Antwoord, Kahn Morbee (The Parlotones), Prime Circle, Karen Zoid and loads more.
The first single from their debut album The Seedling called “Rollercoaster” is now available on all streaming platforms.
