Juxtaposing booming city rhythms with lilting folk, Jeremy Loops is a South African musician based in Cape Town. Debuting at no. 1 and being awarded ‘Album of the Year’ status by iTunes SA, his critically acclaimed debut Trading Change has spawned the hit singles Down South, Skinny Blues, and Mission to the Sun. One of the most prolific artists on South Africa’s touring circuit, Jeremy is enjoying growing success abroad, frequently performing in Great Britain, and currently touring North America on a 20+ show tour that will culminate in several shows at SXSW 2015.

phenomenal band, Latoya Buthelezi, Aka Toya Delazy’s success story in an extraordinary one. From obscure beginnings in the little known eMahlabathini, Kwazulu Natal, Toya’s music has sky-rocketed, from her first mega-hit “Pump it On” and record deal signing with Sony Music Africa in 2011, to her 3 SAMA awards and BET Awards nomination as Best International Act in 2013.
Both a singer and a pianist, Toya’s performance repertoire ranges from delicate, soulful love songs to upbeat rocking electro tunes, songs which many audience members will be familiar with thanks to her widespread airplay all over the African continent.

With the release of her second album “Ascension”, and the ultra controversial single “Forbidden Fruit”, Toya is set to take 2015 by storm.
