When I first started Songsmiths, I contacted my former bandmate, Chris. I have always respected Chris' talents as a songwriter, singer and guitarist and thought he might like to be involved in my new project. I was right. The Beautifuls are about to release their third single and have recently played their first gig (video below).
Beautiful Losers are:
Chris - Lead Vocal, Guitar
Chris and I played together in a rock band several years ago that enjoyed some success locally (Songwriter's Club, Roxy's, Woodstock...anyone?).
Des - Guitar, Harmonica, Backing Vocals
Des and I were both in a Blues band called Redhand for many years. We had a ball playing gigs in cool places all over southern Africa and I'm quite happy to have my homie Des on board to give us a big, two-guitar sound.
Keegan - Bass
Keegan is Des' son! I first heard him play when Redhand was headlining the Durban International Blues Festival years ago and his high school band had an opening slot. His playing has matured a lot since then and he's holding down his end quite capably, thank you.
David - Keys
We've added another of Des' progeny to the lineup. David is going to fill out our sound with his piano/keyboard skills and some vocals too at some point. A Drakensberg Boys Choir veteran, David is perfectly capable of getting in there and harmonizing harmoniously with Chris' lead vocals.
Rob (me) - Drums and Backing Vocals
I've been playing drums and percussion in various bands and orchestras since I was 9 years old (how long that actually is, I'm not saying). And, as stated above, I have played with both Chris and Des before and I'm really enjoying playing with them both at the same time. Can't wait to go live. We're gonna make some magic.
