This has been an extraordinary past few weeks. We spent time in Johannesburg at the end of February, meeting promoters, doing interviews, looking at the stores that stock the CD amongst other things. Whew this music business is hard work!
Then a week later we were back in Johannesburg for the 13th Annual MTN SA Music Awards nominations launch. What a stunning function at an amazing location in Fourways. Were we excited to hear that we had garnered 3 nominations? What a question... It was difficult to sleep that night. Debut album, Independent label, Cape Town record. Our fellow nominees are heavy weights in the industry and it is such an honour to be nominated alongside them.
We were nominated in the categories BEST INSTRUMENTAL ALBUM -along side Paul Hamner, Dna Strings, Denzil Weale, Wessel van Wyk; BEST CONTEMPORARY JAZZ ALBUM - with Simphiwe Dana, Lucas Senyatso, Khaya Mahlangu, Ngwako and BEST PRODUCER with MARK FRANSMAN - up against Bheki Khoza, Lawrence Majiza, Ringo Madlingozi and Lloyd Ross.
The awards ceremony is to be held on Sat 14 April at Sun City and we will be there flying the flag for THE MOREIRA PROJECT, MORESTAR ENTERTAINMENT and CAPE TOWN.
Keep watching the gig guide. There are lots of interesting projects on the go for Moreira and for The Moreira Project.
Keep your fingers crossed for us on the14th. Look forward to seeing you all soon.
