A Child of The Kwazulu Natal Midlands, I started my music in Pietermarizburg with a band named Anesthesia. (PMB Is also known as the sleepy hollow) Bass was my primary Instrument but when I discovered song writing at the age of 14 I quickly switched to Guitar. I recorded an album in 1996 with Candleman titled Thru these eyes. I was on Bass and backing vocals. I front lined in a Cover Band Undercover for 2 years but since moving to Durban have had to leave it behind. So now I'm being Inspired & pushed by Marthie Nel Hauptfleisch to bring my own music out from Hiding. I have collaborated musically with Marthie and Gordon Franks and Roberto Hemerro who have breathed life into my simple songs. Bram Pretorius and Brent Quinton have helped me produce my First solo Album ALL God Made You to be! I will be releasing it 16/2/2019 would love to hear your comments .I love children (I have 4 boys) and the released album features Dedication songs for My Kids and my sisters kids. Love yourself your uniqueness and Beauty. From their we can Love others as ourself and Love God and the Life He has given us. I call my songs prayer letters as many are written for specific people. I also write nonsense songs again about people & experiences. Be blessed ! Thanks for listening. Subscribe please give my album a listen

    Thank you for your continous support <3

  • @srcoops Feb 28

    Glad you liked The Treasure of Today. I would love to collab with you.There are a couple of unused lyrics in my file you might look at. To Be Young might work. I understand that time is extremely short. If nothing works now, maybe next year. I'll be optimistic and assume that I will be around in my 83rd year.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 27

    Thank you for your comment on my song "Where Have You Gone My Love?". I greatly appreciate it. Also, I like listening to The Cranberries, so perhaps it showed in this song.

  • @clioem Feb 26

    Hey friend! No, I want to leave it as an instrumental - and yes, it's a distorted guitarlele! Right on the money ๐Ÿ˜

  • @s7even  Feb 23

    Thank you very much for your kind words on my songs. very much appreciated.
    Iโ€™m about to go through your plethora of songs and look for some inspiration. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 22

    Hi! Thank you for the link. I'll check you out. That's the beauty of FAWM: You've got plenty of excellent musicians that you get to hear in the raw, and I don't know about you, but doing this, even when I don't do much, stretches me into places I normally won't go.

  • @rpasquier  Feb 22

    Thank you for the kind comments on my track. There are some kinks I need to work out. Thanks for pointing me to the future. I visited KZN last spring (RZA) on business. Want to head back down there and see a bit more. I will scan your lyrics and give you my thoughts.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 22

    Thank you, I will share your beautiful songs with my niece.

  • @larryw Feb 22

    Thanks for the link to your album, i'm travelling at the moment, but when I get home I'll check it out

  • @sync  Feb 20

    I checked out your album on CD Baby, Neil. Nice production and I think that's a really good idea of individual prayer songs. Helping people to celebrate their uniqueness and beauty is a wonderful and altruistic goal. I wish you success!

  • @zecoop  Feb 19

    Album sounded great - Must feel good to have that done and out there. You should be proud!
    Thanks for listening to my songs too. I appreciate it a lot. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 19

    Thank you for your comments on my instrumentals. Please kindly share with me the link to "TV build up to Big World cup game".

  • @metalfoot  Feb 19

    ๐Ÿ˜€ I do write a wide range of things! To be fair, the song about the stomach bug was intended to be an opposite song to another song.

  • @larryw Feb 16

    Hi thanks for your kind words on Restless, I purposely didn't put Restless on each line, but let's see how the next version ends up!!

    RE: Drum sounds. On my track "Sex is on Fire" the drums were recorded courtesy of @zecoop All I did was add some reverb.

    Thank you for the listen on Maybe <3

  • @cindyrella  Feb 6

    It sure was worth a listen! Thanks for telling me. Super!

  • @marthie Feb 5

    I printed the lyrics and forgot to look at the footnotes- so I thought it was a religious invitation and not an upbeat Celebration with drums but a bit quiter. #Invitation

  • @misterd Feb 5

  • @mctown Feb 4

    Getting with it. There are several very good collaborators for lyric people you might know.

  • @roelvanveldt Feb 1

    Hey Neil, nice to meet you here! ๐Ÿ˜€
    I suppose "The Day the bubble burst" was written to give it your own musical rendition, but looking for inspiring lyrics, I couldn't help singing in my head a song for it. Up to you whether you'd like to reserve it for your own music, or are open for another rendition. Any answer is just fine. Just let me know, please. ๐Ÿ˜€
