Gian Groen

Gian Groen is die verhoognaam van Gideon Hanekom, gebore in die mid 70’s in Stellenbosch en is vandag woonagtig op Grabouw in 'n plaashuis met verganklike kunssinnige karakter tussen die oorvloedige vrugteboorde. Sy eie stukkie hemel en inderdaad ook sy stukkie skrywers-paradys.

Op die ouderdom van so omenby 2 jaar kry die kleuter-knaap sy heel eerste kitaartjie present en uit staanspoor was dit waar sy voorliefde en vir kitaarspeel indirek begin, benewens die feit dat hy opgroei in ‘n huis met Pa wat Charles Jacobie perfek namaak op sy eie kitaar, Ma wat ‘n geswore orrel junkie is en dan die outentieke platespeler wat die huis gereeldelik met die musiek van Elvis vul.

In sy tienerjare leer Gian se pa hom 3 basiese drukke op sy kitaar sodat hy sy eerste liedjie “Suikerbossie” volmaak kan saamspeel. Min het hy hier besef dat dit die sleutels was van sy fenominale musiek loopbaan in die Afrikaanse musiekbedryf.

Hoekom, weet niemand tot vandag toe nie, maar na sy matriekjaar op Grabouw gaan studeer hy landbou en werk vir paar jaar na sy studies as pluimveeteler in die Swartland. Die hele geswot en gewerkspul is totaal irrelevant in sy lewe , aangesien die jonger Gian Groen veels te verslaaf is aan Rock en Roll om met hoenders te wil boer.

‘n Fenominale deurbraak in Gian Groen se musiek - loopbaan vind plaas toe Laurika Rauch besluit het om Gian se “Vier Seisoene Kind” op te neem. Dit dien as aanspooring tot hoër hoogtes asook die skryf van talle nuwe liedjies wat gereeld voortvloei uit sy kreatiewe pen. Hierna was daar talle versoeke deur bekendes waaronder o.a. Dozi om van Gian se liedjies op te neem.

Van jonks af is hy ‘n groot liefhebber van die werk van die Liedjieboer - Anton Goosen en André Le Toit of te wel beter bekend as Koos Kombuis. Later ontwikkel hy ook smaak vir die vars klanke in die Afrikaanse musiekmark van Valiant Swart wat as inspirasie dien in Gian se werk.
Musikale invloede in Gian Groen se vroeër sang-loopbaan word derhalwe sterk aangevoer deur Anton Goosen, Koos Kombuis en Valiant Swart, wat heel prominent hoorbaar was in sy 1e Band genaamd “Spinnekop”

Baie gepas het Gian Groen onlangs na meer as 4 jaar weer ‘n nuwe alum opgeneem, genaamd - “Stiltetyd”
Elkeen wat Gian (die Rocker) nou al vanaf die goeie ou “Spinnekop” dae af volg, is in vir ‘n groot verrassing.
Stiltetyd is totale nuwe klank en genre in die stal van Groen, en in sy eie beleidenis se Gian: “Ek het na my wedervaringe in my eie mensword en stilraaktyd uiteindelik my niche in die Afrikaanse musiekmark gevind…”

Daar is weg gedoen met die bepaalde rockende kitare-klanke en hy fokus nou op ‘n baie meer klavier en akkoesties gedrewe en rustige gevoel in sy nuwe musiek.
Stiltetyd is ‘n rustige 12 snit album gevul met die mooiste ballades. Tien van die snitte is uit Gian se eie pen. Dan is daar ook ‘n Lucas Maree tribute song - “Die tyd stap aan” sowel as ‘n ou invloedryke Valiant Swart song opgeneem wat dien as so tikkie afwisseling op die album.

Die huidige ‘Gian Groen Band’ het ontstaan uit die eertydse “Spinnekop” wat bekendheid verwerf het met songs soos “Tiger & Louise” en “Binneland in”
Van die oorspronklike bandlede het ander geleenthede in die buiteland gaan ontgun, terwyl Gian intussentyd bekendheid as liedjieskrywer verwerf het met songs soos onder andere die b.g. Vier Seisoene Kind.

Ag gevolg van kommersiële redes besluit om stelselmatig weg te doen met die naam ‘Spinnekop.’ In hierdie tyd is ‘GroenKitaar’ opgeneem onder die naam van beide Gian Groen & Spinnekop.
Die eerste soloprojek deur Gian was met die opname van “Met die Maan Gepla” , waar dieselfde sessiemusiekante of te wel bandlede wat op GroenKitaar gespeel het, gebruik is.

Dit alles het ons gebring tot 'n vars nuwe Gian Groen Band wat bestaan uit John Mitchell op klavier, Jeremy Schultze op dromme en Logan Scott op baskitaar!
Benewens optredes met sy volle band, doen Gian Groen ook baie gereeld optredes by kleiner intieme kuierplekke waar hy “unplugged” as solo kunstenaar optree, en soms vir afwisseling ‘n kitaarspeler saamnooi na hierdie sessie optredes om hom te begelei.

Vir Gian Groen is dit ‘n nuwe tydvak, nuwe era, ‘n nuwe klank en ‘n nuwe begin in sy musiek loopbaan, en sonder twyfel word aangevoer dat hierdie beskeie en uiters talenvolle sanger, liedjieskrywer en musikant gewis ‘n geswore patriotiese aanwins in ons musiek mark is!

Albert Meintjes

Accomplished singer songwriter Albert Meintjes was first seen on the stages of South Africa in 1996.
Inspired and motivated to write and perform his own compositions he embarked on a very exciting journey. Albert writes about everyday happenings and the emotions they bring. His stories of love and life make for entertaining if pensive lyrics. He is strongly influenced by folk and acoustic music across the globe, coupled with indigenes rhythms and melodies. He has a deep love for Southern American flavours of music and where they meet African rhythms and these traits are rooted deep in his music.

Albert grew up in a musical family with his parents both recorded gospel artists, his sister Hainley Cole a dance teacher and jazz vocalist and brother Gideon Meintjes, one of SA’s top drummers and performing musicians.
At the age of five, Albert was already on stage singing in his school choir which were the runner-up in the Applause national choir competition. In 1997 his music career took him to the rock stages of SA and he soon found himself sharing the spotlight with the cream of SA talent, including bands like Strange Weather, Duusman, the SAMA award winning Not My Dog and the ever so popular Scicoustic of which Albert has been the front man for the past eleven years.
Albert has performed with New Porn alongside Arno Carstens, supporting the Metallica tour and on stage with some of the top artists in the country like Albert Frost, Anton La’mour, Karen Zoid, Greg Georgiades, Valiant Swart, Shaun Morgan (Seether), Hugo De Waal , Lani van der Walt and Moseu Kettlele just to name a few.
With his unique voice, brilliant song writing and exceptional guitar techniques, Albert has entertained audiences in London, Croatia, Seychelles, Mozambique, Cuba, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Belgium, The Netherlands, Nigeria and Kenya, and he was well received all-round.
