Emma-Jean & Tanja Storm at Cottage Club

Emma-Jean is a 19 year old indie folk singer-songwriter from the ‘deep south’ – as she often likes to tell her audience when introducing a song, specifically about this area. Emma-Jean started playing guitar around the age of 11, when she was inspired by watching her mother play. From there she started playing around with words that led to lyrics, and then soon enough, lyrics that became full songs. In 2015 she placed part of the top ten in the Barleycorn’s Annual Songwriters’ Competition, later coming third in 2016 – which was the same year she won Hectic Nine 9’s ‘Shine Nine 9’ competition, that aired on SABC2. Currently Emma-Jean is working on some recordings, which she hopes to be available a little later this year. Like many of the artists Emma-Jean is inspired by Brandi Carlile, Tracy Chapman, Alice Phoebe Lou, Jennifer Eaves and many more. She believes

Laubscher’s musical influences and styles are diverse, ranging from Hendrix to Cash, rock to blues, English to Afrikaans. His professional musical career started when he jammed with Bertie Coetzee at school in the first incarnation of what would become Zinkplaat, a road-tested Afrikaans rock band who played hundreds of gigs from the West Coast to London during a decade-long career.

Laubscher has performed alongside countless top names at countless festivals.He
