Songsmiths is an indie record label based in Johannesburg, South Africa. I have songs from three super-talented artists and my catalog now includes almost 20 rock, pop and experimental tracks. So, I reckon it’s time to seek bigger, better opportunities for this exciting South African music! Stay tuned for phase 2.
Songwriters, if you think your songs can compete with the best in the business, send me a recording. It doesn’t have to be a studio recording and you don’t have to be a fantastic singer. Just pick up your guitar or sit at your piano and hit record on your phone. Whatsapp or email the recording to me, Rob. I will get back to you if I think I can help.
I have just one song from K-Jo, but it’s mighty! “The Dilemma” is a pop song that starts out quiet and melancholy, then builds to a triumphant, orchestral finale, carried all the while by K-Jo’s stunning voice. I still get goosebumps when she sings the last “I’ll do better next time.” Stunning.
Club of Suns
I often refer to Club of Suns as a “cerebral” rock band because they’re all deep thinkers and that comes across in their music. In reality, they’re an alternative band in the Radiohead vein. Expect electric guitars, synths, live and programmed drums . . . space. Club of Suns also have a knack for building their songs to lush, transcendent endings. These three guys can make a big sound.
Beautiful Losers is a song-driven rock band more in the classic rock style than Club of Suns. Their sound is defined by Chris’ voice and guitars which are sometimes acoustic, sometimes electric, always 100% Beauzers. Expect themes of love, family and survival, and sounds ranging from singer/songwriter to Hard Rock.
