Jeremy Loops, Beatenberg at Rocking The Daisies 2014

Jeremy Loops

Jeremy Loops (29) is a folk musician hailing out of Cape Town, South Africa. Winner of the 2013 MK Male Solo Artist of the Year award, his career has been built on a strong live act that’s made him a mainstay on South Africa’s major festivals circuit.

His music, often called modern folk due to how Jeremy mixes up genres, has spawned two commercial successes on South African radio with the songs Mission To The Sun and Power.

Jeremy’s international career launched in 2013, with 20 international shows, most of which were sold out, played across London, Paris, Prague, Delhi, Mumbai, New York and Los Angeles, with a major tour of North America already scheduled for 2014.

Trading Change, his eagerly anticipated debut album, is scheduled for release in Q1 2014, with a massive launch party scheduled for 6 April 2013 when Jeremy will headline his second Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concert in sequential years.


Beatenberg is a fresh new face in pop music from South Africa. Or rather, three faces, handsome and young and intelligent. The faces are of Matthew Field, who also has a beautiful voice and plays the guitar, Ross Dorkin, who has beautiful hands that play the bass, and Robin Brink, who has a beautiful life-force and plays the drums like a nutcase.

Despite being in love with and schooled in ‘serious music’ like Beethoven, Debussy and John Coltrane, (Ross and Matthew studied music together at the University of Cape Town) Beatenberg is adamant that they are heard as ‘pop music’, which they believe is actually quite serious too.

Songwriter Matthew says: ‘It’s about emotions, images and fleeting senses of things: the mad stuff that everyone feels and almost understands.’
