The last five years has seen the enigmatic front man of the Jack Mantis Band travel the world living out his various passions as musician, graffiti artist, adventurer and ultimately soul searcher. JMB (originally formed as a trio with Jimmy Curve and Ronan Skillen) quickly established itself as a household name within the Cape Town music scene in the 2000’s. They were the darlings of Café Dharma (Kloof Street) and later Zula Bar and featured at some of the country’s major festival line-ups. This the band accomplished without releasing an album in South Africa, which remains testament to the power that JMB’s live performance had even at the very start of their career. Live performance is the quintessence of music for Mantis, which is expressed in the various incarnations of the band’s stage show over the years.

Mantis has just joined forces with lead guitarist Andre Geldenhuys (formerly Machineri, core member of Fantasma with Spoek Mathambo). Born & raised in Kommetjie, Cape Town, Andre has worked with a host of top calibre artists including session work for the likes of Jeremy Loops, Petite Noir, Gazelle, Alice Phoebe Lou, Champions of the Sonarverse (DJ InviZAble) and Patrick McCay (2 Minute Puzzle). Andre is also no stranger to operating abroad. He has been based in France and Italy and has toured Europe with Spoek Mathambo, including a landmark performance at SONAR – a festival known for its pioneering cultural innovation. Andre shares the love for consciously evolving musical boundaries.

Janice is a vivacious singer, songwriter born and raised in the Mother City, Cape Town. Like most successful artists she grew up singing in church and took lead roles in school performance groups, choirs and musicals. In 2008 at the age of 17yrs, she entered a well-known South African singing competition and made it to the Top 70. Janice did not make it to the final rounds – Feeling rejected and despondent she chose to no longer pursue her singing career. It was not until a few years later, when her childhood friend Jimmy Nevis asked her to join his band as a backing vocalist. In 3 years Janice has toured with Nevis and backed other artists such as Loyiso Bala and various International Gospel Acts.Janice: “Getting to sing again in front of thousands, hearing the crowds roar and working with such talented musicians/ artists made me realise how much I missed sharing my gift – my voice.”

There are few acclaimed musicians, singers, songwriters, producers and astute business minds that have the luxury of labelling themselves ‘late developers’ when, in reality, they’ve already achieved more than most will in an entire band’s collective lifetime.In the case of Cape Town born-and-raised James Stewart, he not only fits the description to a T, he most likely helped trademark the mould. That’s just how considered the Franschhoek-based, Emmy-nominated, multi SAMA award winning, chart topping creative patently is.Labelling himself humbly and austerely a ‘musician’, James has spent the better part of his music career hell-bent on delivering seminal songs, most of which have enjoyed extended periods of times hugging the very tops of the South African and capturing hearts and minds around the world. Premillennial, The Usual created Number One hits and immortal classics the likes of “The Shape That I’m in” and “Like A Vision”. Signed to Street Level, James’ own label, BMG Records (now SONY) soon came snooping, and the partnership carved a place in our collective aural subconscious that continues to resonate today.
