Tresor began his musical journey at the age of 17 when he left the DRC after losing his parents. Since his arrival in South Africa seven years ago, he has released his debut album, ‘VII,’ signed to Vth Season, is licensed to Sony Music Africa and signed globally with Ultra Music. With two singles, ‘Mount Everest and ‘Never Let Me Go’ enjoying radio success globally and having won the SAMA for best Pop album in 2016, Tresor has been moulding a proudly African pop sound for the world to enjoy.
Seal has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and released a total of nine studio albums in his career so far. His inimitable voice was first heard on Adamski’s 1991 club smash ‘Killer’ and another Top 10 hit ‘Crazy’ arrived shortly thereafter as Seal went on to achieve global acclaim with his debut.
With global smash hits including ‘Kiss from a Rose’, which appeared on the soundtrack to the 1995 film ‘Batman Forever’, Seal has won many music awards throughout his career including three Brit Awards, four Grammy Awards and an MTV Video Music Award. As a songwriter, he has received the British Academy’s Ivor Novello Award, for Best Song Musicially and Lyrically, in consecutive years for ‘Killer’ and ‘Crazy’.
In 2012, Seal was one of the four vocal coaches in the first season of the Australian version of the reality singing competition ‘The Voice’ and coached the series winner Karise Eden. Seal returned to ‘The Voice’ in season two where he became the winning coach once again with winner Harrison Craig.
On his latest album release ‘7’ Seal commented, “ it concerns the most sung about, most talked about and most documented emotion – love.” He reunited with long-time collaborator producer Trevor Horn. This continued partnership began with his debut platinum certified release ‘Seal’ (1991) and continued with the quadruple-platinum ‘Seal II’ (1994), the gold selling “Human Being” (1998) and ‘Seal IV’ (2003).
