My Work Story

Growing up in small farming towns in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa, I was always around nature and fresh air. I grew up in the church and developed a love for music within the church band and worship music.

I began playing the drums at age 10, later moving to more melodic instruments like guitar and piano. I realized as a teenager that music was something that I wanted to pursue, and decided to study it at a tertiary level.

After completing my Honors in Jazz Guitar, Music Education, and Studio Engineering, I began to slowly develop a career as a performing musician.

After a couple of different projects, I started a pop/funk duo called EASY FREAK.

It’s been an incredible journey, and I’m so thankful to be able to write, produce and perform music for a living. I live and breathe music–from traditional instruments to DAWs like Ableton and Logic.

Adventures & Experience

EASY FREAK has had the privilege of performing at all of South Africa’s biggest festivals and events, a highlight being an appearance on The Voice South Africa as a Guest Artist.

We have released two full-length albums and a bunch of EPs and defined a unique sound within a complex and eclectic musical landscape.
