Seb Goldswain will be performing at the Maritzburg Musician’s Club on Tuesday, 25 April – one of his last performances before he ties the knot.
A guitarist, composer and performing artist, Seb is best known for his virtuoso guitar playing and high-energy stage presence.
Armed with either an acoustic guitar or an electric guitar and a Marshall stack, he has the rare ability of wowing and entertaining crowds with nothing but his original compositions, energetic performances and dazzling guitar playing.
With influences like Tommy Emmanuel, Frank Zappa, and Steve Morse, Seb expresses the rare talent of being able to entertain a pop crowd, as well as jazz, rock, blues and heavy metal crowds.
With the arrival of his debut album Pictures of a Thousand Words, Seb has taken a bold step towards establishing himself as one of the new breed of original voices in South African music.
Encompassing influences from across a wide range of genres and cultures, the album is stylistically diverse, while carrying a sound throughout that is both uniquely Seb’s own, and carrying a distinct Kwa-Zulu-Natal flavour.
Also gracing the La Casa stage, after a fantastic show at Splashy Fen, will be Nishalin Pillay and Jessica Martins, joined by new addition bass guitarist Nathan McNeill.
Singer-songwriter, guitarist and pianist, Jessica is from Ballito. She competed in The Voice SA season 1 where she was the youngest contestant to the second round.
Nishalin is a percussionist specialising on the Tabla and Cajon. He has played percussion for close to 15 years but only started performing in April 2016. He joined the Jack Mantis Band and has played several gigs with them in KZN and Cape town, as well as headlining at White Mountain Acoustic Festival 2016.
Jessica and Nishalin have been a duo since 2016 and have been impressing audiences with their Eastern-Western fusion style of music and raw talent. Their genres include indie-rock; indie-folk; alternative rock; blues rock and their sound is very much unique and experimental.
Nathan is a talented multi-instrumentalist plays the piano, guitar, violin also and has a voice of note. Most of Jess’ original songs are duos with Nathan.
Doors open at 7pm. Tickets R50 with Kishmish dinner on offer.
