For the first time in four years, Nianell will grace the Boer theatre restaurant’s stage on Saturday, December 28, at 8.30pm.
Through the “power of song, sound and the beauty of simplicity, Nianell will create a magical space in which you can find your way home to your soul”.
This performance will include songs from Nianell’s eight solo albums, as well as some brand new material.
The platinum selling vocal gymnast is known for her ability to ease through four octaves. She includes elements of Folk, Pop, R&B, Country, Classic and Celtic music in her song-writing. Vocally she has created her own musical language, where words are often deemed unnecessary.
She is a South African and international success story, with many of her songs play-listed on radio stations worldwide. In addition to being a vocalist, musician and songwriter, as well as an author, Nianell has also been sharing her message as an inspirational keynote speaker these past years. “Awareness is the birth of new beginnings, the beginning of a life worth living, the beginning of actually being alive,” she explains.
The artist has been a trailblazer for female singer-songwriters in South Africa ever since the release of her debut-album, 2001’s ‘Who Painted the Moon?’. The title track swept listeners across the country away and Nianell quickly became a household name. She also achieved international success with the title track when Hayley Westenra did a cover version of it and sold over two million copies worldwide.
On home soil, Nianell has delivered consistently successful albums, including the double SAMA-winning ‘Angel Tongue’ (2004), ‘Life’s Gift’ (2006), ‘I Know I’m Lucky’ (2008), ‘Sand & Water’ (2010) and ‘My Heart’ (2012).
