Dear Reader head home in support of The Lumineers and nationwide tour

On 6 December Dear Reader will join the line-up as one of the local support acts for The Lumineers live at Emmarentia Dam in Johannesburg.

“I am very excited to share the stage with so many talented musicians and decided that it’s an opportunity that should not be passed up. I will be flying home to play the show with a 5-piece band,” says Cherilyn MacNeil.

Dear Reader isn’t so much a band as a one-woman show; that woman being South African bred, Berlin-based, Cherilyn MacNeil. Formerly known as Harris Tweed, Dear Reader has matured into a unique and remarkable sound in the alternative and folk-pop music scene. MacNeil’s latest album, Rivonia, received great reviews for its emotional and poignant take on South Africa’s recent history. Rivonia also received 2 SAMA nominations earlier this year in the categories Best Female and Best Alternative Album.

During the band’s SA visit, Dear Reader will also embark on the nationwide Blue Met Blue tour, a run of intimate, seated shows in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban and Cape Town. The tour kicks off on the 5th December with Dear Reader hosting a special acoustic concert at Lilliesleaf Farm in Rivonia to remember Madiba on the anniversary of his passing. The events that took place at Lilliesleaf in 1963 were the inspiration for the song, Took Them Away, making it an especially significant location for the show. All proceeds will go to the Mandela Institute, which supports rural schools in the Eastern Cape. South African Cult heros Van der Want / Letcher will join Dear Reader on stage.

Another stand-out show will be taking place on December 10th in conjunction with Molo Mollo, an alternative movie night held in unusual locations in Pretoria’s CBD. Dear Reader will play a full-length concert and afterwards there will be a screening of A Coffee in Berlin, the award-winning German Indie film for which Cherilyn received the German Film Prize for Best Film Music in 2013.

Dear Reader SA Tour

Jeremy Loops shows fans his Skinny Blues

Jeremy Loops latest offering “Skinny Blues” has already achieved chart topping success, hitting the number one spot on PUK FM, TUKS FM, MFM. “Skinny Blues” has also shot into the 5FM Top 40, reaching the #2 spot last week after just 7 weeks on the charts.

The music video shows fans a more vulnerable side to Loops. Depicted by a cascade of luminous hearts, Jeremy Loops discloses his inner-most sentiments and longing for his previous lover. Without the incessant approach of revealing all that has influenced the relationships current status, the simplicity of this montage allows the audience a direct insight into his thoughts on the relationship’s outcome.

‘Skinny Blues is one of my favourite songs on the record and the concept for the video, where we purchased a kilometre of fairy lights for the treatment, is one of my favourite ways of approaching art. It’s simple, but beautifully executed. I couldn’t be more proud of what we achieved with it,’ he says.

alt-J’s global chart dominance

alt-j chart

alt-J celebrate their second album “This Is All Yours” debuting at number one in the official UK

album charts and number four on the US Billboard 200. “We’re over the moon to see our album at

Number 1 in the UK and it’s amazing to be embraced by America in this way,” keyboard player and multi-instrumentalist Gus Unger-Hamilton said. “We never dreamed of having our music high in the charts anywhere. It’s mindblowing. It was never something we thought we’d achieve, but it’s our fans who have put us there so we owe this to them.”

alt-J also steadily held down the no.1 position on SA iTunes https://itunes.apple.com/za/album/this-is-all-yours/id886683838

The album contains the singles Every Other Freckle and Hunger Of The Pine, and is available to stream and buy in CD, digital and double-vinyl editions via Infectious Music.

alt-J have just completed a sold out UK tour, culminating in a London show at the 10,000-capacity Alexandra Palace which sold out in ten minutes, and are about to begin a sold out US run. They recently announced their biggest headline shows to date, at London’s O2 Arena on 24 January and New York’s Madison Square Garden on 30 March.
