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! Time for phase 2.
Meet the Artists
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,” especially when I’m watching the video.
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. They also have a knack for building up to lush, transcendent song 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.
