What does music mean to you?

It’s been the backbone to my existence for many years and its not done with me yet.

Any Purple Rain moments?

Since Prince died I have been doing that song every now and then. I have been a massive fan of Prince and Bowie for many years so 2016 will always be remembered as the great cull regarding musicians.

Your hero’s?

They come and go but the legacies remain. They kind of shape your youth and give comfort when you get older. I am a fan of many I consider myself rich in that regards.

Life in Cape Town?

This question reminds me of something someone said to me about Stellenbosch.

Living in Cape Town is like living in a fool’s paradise. Being a fool is a small price to pay for living in some kind of paradise.

It’s your round what are you drinking?

It’s the last drink of the night so everyone gets a litre of water to take to there rooms.

The song you wished you wrote?

“ Slave to love” by Bryan Ferry

But there are so many other songs I love and am jealous off.

Dream gig to do?

That will be the still to be discovered breathless venue with bunch musical friends where music and sound compliment the scenery and atmosphere.

What makes you stand out?

A good interactive or appreciative audience makes parts of my body glow in the dark.

Nicknames?

Arri or Cassi or Klein Jos

If you were not a musician what would you do?

A Struggling fine artist.

Pick five words to describe your band?

Of the cuff brilliance.

5 Desert Island Discs?

It will be a compilation of many artist including Harry Belafonte, Friendly Fires and many more.

Greatest Movie Ever Made?

Meet Joe Black

Who do you love?

My family.

What does the usual mean?

Feeling healthy and content or not at all, the usual is in constant fluctuation.

Favorite Fashion Garment

Vintage Garments and Kilts

Give us some slang

Sharp my Bra.

Do you have famous phone numbers on your phone?

If you mean the numbers of socially awkward people then yes.

What do you complain about most often?

Life, but it’s also the thing I celebrate most.

What is your fear?

Total health and financial failure being unable to take care of my family.

Happiness is?

A Blissful moment in time where nothing else matters.

On stage I tend to?

Loose control every now and then it sometimes works and sometimes bombs but am still working on fine-tuning the performance thing.

What are you doing next?

Id like to see Springbok Nude Girls doing something this year also I’m working on an art exhibition.
