EDITORS’ NOTES

Impassioned, gravelly and brimming with urgency, the voice of SAMRO Songwriter of the Year nominee Joshua Kempen instantly disarms its listener. Combining those unmistakable vocals with the Johannesburg singer/songwriter’s flair for strumming a compelling melody, The Morning Show is an album rich with narrative lyricism and sincere, hard-won perspective. Kempen already has two singles under his belt, “Pistol” and “The River”, the latter an iTunes Top 10 hit. He builds on his considerable potential with this expansive 15-track debut—a confirmation of the local festival favourite's standing as a notable new voice in South African music.
