Claremont muso to launch debut album

Keanu Harker

Keanu Harker, 25, from Claremont will launch his deputy album, I Believe in Me, later this month.

The songs, with influences from pop R&B and soul, tap into his life’s experiences, says Harker, who performed on The Voice in 2019.

“I definitely did not think that I would be fortunate enough to record a full album this year in the midst of a global pandemic. I have faced many challenges over the past two years, and was very hesitant to do the album but with the encouragement and support from friends, family, fans and my team – we made it happen.

“I have performed for so many different audiences around South Africa, and this album speaks to all these audiences.

“The album has something for everybody, and will give the listener an idea of who I am. My album is relatable and speaks of unity, thanksgiving, perseverance, belief, heartache and so much more.”

He says he wrote, Stand Together, one of the songs on the album, last year when the country was going through a difficult time.

“I am still hopeful that one day we will all stand together and unite as one,” he says.

The album will be launched on Sunday November 28 at The Daisy Jones Bar at OMG, situated between the vineyards on Summerhill Wine Estate in Stellenbosch. It will be available on all digital platforms after the launch.

Doors open at 2pm, and the show starts 5pm. Tickets are R150 and available through Quicket.
