The Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts presents a live performance by modern folk musician, Jeremy Loops.
From cult live act status in his hometown Cape Town, to a chart topping album domestically, Jeremy Loops career’s been characterised by breaking through glass ceilings. An international breakout year in 2015 saw him open for Twenty One Pilots on the road, headline a sold out 30,000-ticket tour of his own, and release music, most notably his single Down South, breakthrough in major European territories. With his new album, slated for a 2017 release, here’s a maturing, sophisticated musician preparing to see his vision of taking his music global.
The extremes aren’t new to the singer, who by day travels to the furthest corners of Africa to battle deforestation through his organisation, Greenpop, and by night resumes as raconteur for raucous fans around the world.
“As he relaxed and layered the second banjo part and then a basic beat, the act was smooth and natural and it was obvious that he was playing his own game with his own rules.” Read Marie-Claire de Villiers’ review of Jeremy Loops.
