                                                       Paul Petersen

Paul Petersen, guitarist, has been playing professionally since he was sixteen. He moved to Johannesburg to work in 1978 and a year later got his break when he joined afro-jazz band, Spirits Rejoice. With Spirits Rejoice, he recorded the hit songs Paradise Road and Shine On.
From the mid-eighties, Paul played from Cape Town to Sun City to the Comoros Islands and back, and has worked with many top acts including Johnny Clegg, Wayne Jackson of the Memphis Horns, J.D. Blair (Shania Twain), Taliep Petersen, David Kramer, Terry  Fortune, Jim Roberts, Timmy Thomas, Leo Sayer, Lamont Dozier, Clarence Carter, Margaret Singana, Lionel Petersen, Richard Jon Smith and Dobie Gray. 
In 1997 Paul and his American-born wife Helen moved to Bowling Green, Kentucky. He built and ran a recording studio while playing in a world-music band based in Nashville. In 2003 Paul returned to his home of Cape Town to develop local talent which he believes to be both abundant and untapped.

Patric van Blerk

Patric van Blerk has covered extensive territory and gathered much experience in the music industry. He has been inducted into the SA Digest of Rock’s Hall of Fame for his contribution to South African music. He has won various SARIE and industry awards, as well as gold and platinum discs.
Patric started with Gallo in 1968 and then went independent in the early seventies. He has at various times worked with or initiated the careers of many SA artists. In addition, he assisted in guiding the creative fortunes of Virgin Records in SA for three years when the label enjoyed some of the its biggest success. He introduced SA to the Gipsy Kings and the very successful dance-compilation series High-Energy Double-Dance.
Patric’s experience with studios began as co-owner of Auvico in Johannesburg, the first 16-track recording studio in S.A. It was subsequently sold to Satbel. As a result, the famed multi-million Satbel studio complex became Patric’s home for the next seven years.
Patric later bought the equally famed Sonovision, responsible not only for the legendary Springbok radio shows like Squad Cars and Consider Your Verdict, but also thousands of radio jingles.
Local acts he has worked with include Ipi Tombi, Margaret Singana, Rabbitt, Joy, Julian Laxton, Sweatband featuring Wendy Oldfield, Mike Makhalemele, Winston ‘Mankunku’ Ngozi, Kiepie Moeketsi, Alan Kwela, Spirits Rejoice featuring Sipho Gumede, Mahlathini, Gibson Kente, Mimi Coertse, Freedom’s Children, Radio Rats, Café Society, Dave Mills, Lauren Copley, Gecko Moon featuring Ringo and many others.
As a songwriter, Patric has enjoyed success with songs such as Paradise Road, Charlie, and Blue Water. He co-wrote and co-produced the title theme from the TV series Shaka Zulu, We Are Growing, which enjoyed international success. Co-writers he has worked with include Trevor Rabin, Julian Laxton, Fransua Roos and Hal Shaper. Patric has worked on international films such as Hold My Hand I’m Dying and Death of a Snowman. He retains film connections abroad and locally.
Patric has travelled the music world extensively. In 1971 he represented SA at the World Popular Song Festival in Tokyo. He made many trips to the international trade gathering MIDEM held in Cannes. Patric succeeded in securing major international deals for artists such as Margaret Singana, Ipi Tombi and  Rabbitt, despite the difficult and isolating political climate of the apartheid years.
