On the hunt for a support band in JHB…

We have a support slot free for our show at the Play Station Theatre in Johannesburg on 11 December and feel like it would be a nice opportunity to share the stage with an up-and-coming local band.

If anyone is interested in warming up the crowd for us, please inbox me on info@dearreadermusic.com with a couple of links to soundcloud/youtube videos and a short bio.

Here’s a throw-back pic of Dear Reader on stage supporting Andrew Bird at St Giles Catherdral in 2008…

Thanks SAMA20!

We had such a great time at the South African Music Awards on Monday. Well done to all the winners. It was an honour to be nominated and lovely to see so many old friends and make some new ones. And when Ladysmith Black Mambazo sang I felt like I turned into one enormous weepy goosebump.

Also a huge thank you to Sies!Isabelle for my beautiful dress.
