As a child of about -+ 4 years, hearing problems started developing i was about 60% deaf in the left ear and 80% deaf in the right ear. I always had the desire to make music and to share music with those around me. I saw my mother playing the piano and my sister singing along(Wilma-Dee), wishing I could do that.
After a successful operation my hearing recovered although it never came back 100%. In primary school std4, my stepfather, who was a mechanic, fixed another man’s car to be able to give me my first guitar. I immediately knew what to do and learned to play very quickly. When I started high school my father bought me my first electric guitar and amplifier. I also did well in the school choir and it wasn’t long after that, that I had a few friends and we started a band, practiced hard and we were popular in the community we lived in around Cape Town. I also played in the school’s band, of which I was the lead trumpeter.
After school I went to the army where I was the lead trumpeter and singer of the band. After the army, life got a little crazy and I ended up living on the streets. I kept myself alive by playing guitar and singing to the people walking past with the very first guitar I bought myself when I was still in high school.
At that time I participated in many singing competitions of which I was the winner. The biggest competition i ever took part in was at the South African Country Music Association where I was declared the winner.
By God’s grace I started playing at the Spring Hotel, and later became the Manager of the Hotel. It also was my residence at that time. I played in a 2-man band for about 1 year after which I was in a 1-man band for about 4 years and then moved to Cape
Town at that time where I played in a 2-man and 5-man band for 11 years. During that time I started learning and doing studio work and started making our own tracks. 7 years later, with a lot of practice and a lot of lessons, I am proud to say that today Ihave my own recording studio (Soundblaster Studio) where I record other artists and also design and print CD covers for them to give them a complete product as well as stock to to sell.
