How it all started
A Karoo girl, born with a great passion and love for music. The moment she could pull herself up on the piano chair, she taught herself to play and sing. She soon performed at various events in the town where she grew up and later started writing songs. She studied drama with classical singing at Stellenbosch to develop the performance component to her music. It is in the University choir where she met Lourens and the band was born. After a few years in corporate theatre, she took up the Bottomless Coffee Band as a full time career. Her other passions and hobbies are people, traveling, coffee, wine, food, fashion, film and musical theatre!
He grew up in Durbanville, Cape Town, where he was exposed to a vibrant music scene from a young age. His tupperware drumming sessions as a little boy payed off and he soon started playing drums in various rock and metal bands as a schoolboy. He took up guitar at a later age under the guidance of his older brother. He studied law and investments at Stellenbosch and UCT where his love for blues and folk music began. He worked as an investment analyst for 4 years before he took the leap of faith to become a full time musician. He also has a great love for collecting guitars, traveling, wine and personal finance.
