Company profile

Singer/Songwriter from Knysna,South Africa,who has won the ”Best New Artist” award,on Pirate Radio of The Treasure Coast,Florida,USA’s 2011 Rockstar Contest. Pierre started his musical-career as a drummer, at the young age of 12yrs, and played with various bands during high-school years. A shooting-accident during his military-service severely damaged his right hand/wrist and ended his plans of continuing a career as a professional drummer! Being a natural musician, he progressed to guitar at the age of 15 and continued his passion for music, by performing in various pubs, booze-cruises and beach-parties, over the years. Pierre’s song-writing skills were born during a difficult year, in 2000, whilst living in a caravan on the South Coast of Natal, and continued during the latter years where he has been living in Knysna for the past ten years. Now, with almost a complete album ready, his music has been heard on many European and USA online-radio, and campus radio-stations, including two music-videos on Youtube. His voice and music-style has more than often, been compared to the likes of David Gray, Cat Stevens, Willie Nelson, and even Roger Waters of Pink Floyd.
