ABOUT ALBERT FROST:
Frost took home his first SAMA last year when his 3rd solo album, ‘The Wake Up’, won the Award for ‘Best Rock Album’. The album successfully explored a departure from Frost’s blues roots, ‘The Wake Up’ showcasing various musical avenues and lyrical content to create something that surprised and excited fans all over, clearly evident from the get go with debut single ‘Tonight’.
For the past two decades Frost has captivated audiences worldwide and aptly dubbed the “South African Hendrix”, skilfully alternates between rhythm and lead, showcasing his extraordinary talent on acoustic and electric guitars. His first love is the Blues, stemming from the influence of his long relationship with the Blues Broers, a well-known and respected group from Cape Town with whom he performed from 1994 at the age of 17.
He has recorded with Arno Carstens, Koos Kombuis, Chris Chameleon, Anton Goosen, David Kramer, Karen Zoid, Blues Broers and many others. He has performed with every major artist in South Africa as well as international artists like Ali Farka Touré and Finley Quaye. He has toured with Simple Minds and REM, and supported the Rolling Stones. Albert has performed at legendary and exclusive international music festivals including Isle of Wight, Hard Rock Calling and OppiKoppi.
After a very successful 2017 Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees, Frost was nominated for a Kanna award as well as a kykNET-Fiëstas 2018 for the Best Music Production for the two shows: with Loki Rothman (The Acoustic Guitar) and with Zolani Mahola (Rok en Rol). In December 2017 Albert Frost was also invited to perform with Henry Ate at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens opening for the Scottish band, TEXAS.
His patent enjoyment of the music he performs and his instruments as well as his charming rapport with the audience, keeps his admirers captivated and returning for more.
