What a roller coaster of a year it was last year. I am happy to be one month into the beautiful 2019. It feels like one filled with new opportunities, ventures and loads of creativity. I eased into the year focusing a lot on Iluminar Productions by creating ties between artists and venues, and creating performance opportunities for musicians. Do have a look at the website to find out what Iluminar will be presenting to the public this year.
I had a great performance in Pretoria on the 1st of February. It reminded me how much I enjoy performing solo and telling the stories behind my songs. I decided I will be doing more of those throughout the year. It has been a while since I have written and composed new music. I have done a lot of soul searching and I most definitely feel a surge of new material coming. These solo shows will be a perfect space for me to try out my new songs. So do keep a lookout on my Show page for one of these solo shows in your area. I am looking forward to a surprise performance in the Boland on Valentine’s Day. I will post info on this soon!
And then I am very much looking forward to our festival debut of the music theatre production “Her Blues”. After successful runs at theatres in 2018, we are now taking the production to festivals. Our first run is at the annual Woordfees in Stellenbosch. We will be performing on 2 and 5 March at 20h30 both nights. Be sure to book your tickets in advance. They can be purchased at Computicket.
At the end of March you can also look forward to a Luna Paige Band performance at Muratie Wine Estate, who is hosting “Music in the Garden” every last Saturday of the month up until April.
I recently bought myself a new toy – a fantastic vocal and instrumental loop pedal. Plan is to start playing around with that and slowly incorporating my new ideas into my shows. So be sure to catch me when I am in your area!
May the month of love be the spark that ignites a fantastic year ahead.
