Pencil Pusher Man
My first Fruit Vendor single has arrived and I’m super proud to share it here. It feels really good to have a tangible product at hand that I can use to refer interested parties to. The music was composed and produced by me in my bedroom studio and mastered by Grenville Williams (Jack Parow, Gazelle, Godessa etc). I mention the former, because loads of people think it was recorded at a top notch studio with the best equipment money can buy. That whole thing about recording at big studios – that’s a myth. There’s something very empowering about crafting your work in the comfort of your own home, much like a painter would. I present Pencil Pusher Man, enjoy:

Gigs This Week
Brother & Brother will be taking to the stage again tomorrow night at Bohemia alongside Elevated Motion. Our last gig there was really well received, so we hope this one will be too. Entrance is FREE.
Saturday eve is the Juju & Josh Jukebox at Aan de Braak Theatre which is an intimate piano and voice covers show that I’m doing with my friend Juju Domingo. Previously we worked on a show I did at Woordfees earlier this year called Dahgah Fondasie which was an exploration of ethnicity and identity set to jazz instrumentation. This time around we’re keeping it simple and homaging some of the songs we really enjoy and those that have inspired or meant something to us. These range from top 40, jazz standards, classics and even nursery rhymes. It’s also quite a nice challenge for me as I’ll be on piano the whole night. Entrance is R40 pre-sale and R60 at the door.
See you there!
