Laura Burhenn is an established singer songwriter from the United States and the dynamic front woman of the soul folk band The Mynabirds. She has also toured the world extensively as a member of indie mega bands The Postal Service and Bright Eyes. In her first visit to South Africa, Laura will be performing in Cape Town, at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, Durban & Johannnesburg. As part of the tour initiative, Laura will be collaborating with equally established homegrown songbirds – Inge Beckmann (Lark / Beast) for the CapeTown performances, Faye Oakes (Faye & Wren) in Durban and Eve Rakow (The Frown) in Johannesburg.

 

Furthermore, Laura will be embarking on a unique pilot program in partnership with One Fine Day and Africa Voices Trust that aims to uplift two singers from previously disadvantaged communities (development artists) via a mentorship process to provide them the opportunity to develop real experience in a tour environment.

 

The Songbird Tour places subtle emphasis on celebrating the creative woman. It is aimed at being a pioneering exchange that serves as an interaction between established international artists, up and coming South African talent and local singers and performers within disadvantaged communities. The artists and crew – all professionals in their own right – have donated their time and expertise to the mentorship program free of charge as a focus toward upliftment and sustainable job creation. The established acts are each vibrant and successful female artists who have significantly contributed to their respective music scenes.

Stolen Pony is South African born, Johannesburg raised Eve Rakow’s (The Frown, Negative Youth, Rakkie) solo offering. Stolen Pony is the songstress’s own brand of DIY Pillow Cry Internet Pop. Formed in December 2013 Stolen Pony recently released her debut album, ‘Home Alone’ along with a video series collaborating with the prolific photographer turned videographer Justin McGee. The Song Bird Tour sees Stolen Pony join forces with multi instrumentalist Guy Raphaely aka Fonda for a stripped down interpretation of Rakow’s nostalgic, dream laptop-pop.
