I was born on January 7, 1987 in Pietersburg. I currently live in Randburg.
My love for music started early, from my childhood days my parents realized that I had an extraordinary ability to easily memorize lyrics and melody. With their encouragement and wonderful support, I came to where I am today.
I started formal vocal training from the year 2002 at the age of 16 at “Amrian's vocal studios” in Polokwane until early 2005. my mother and I love to write our own lyrics and I handle the composition of it.
I have been performing on stage since I was 11 years old and play guitar, harmonica, violin, piano and pan flute. I had my own vocal training studio in Polokwane and currently teach part-time music classes in Randburg. I am an Afrikaans teacher at a private school during the day, but I also write some of my own songs and record at DV - Studios in Parys Freestate. Currently working on my new
album presented by Dogbox Records.
