King Bird Takes Flight!
The TOUR-TORIAL 2015 / 2016
WORDSUNTAME has decided on a national tour to release their debut album
King Bird. We would love for YOU to be part of this art. Help us spread positive music!
Love and light to you all. We, Wordsuntame have just finished planning for our tour around South Africa, the TOUR-TORIAL and we are so excited for what’s to come of it!
The tour will take flight during the festive season and will land back home mid-January 2016! We are headed to Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town and already have venues booked ready for our arrival!
Wordsuntame music is a raw, uncooked mashup of real experiences and their morals. We like to call our art
‘formal – slang’. It is the weaving of good and bad where in between lies the eternal space of possibility and creative change. The King Bird album is the poetic expression of the best that we believe life could offer, if we choose. The album tells an extraordinary continuous story of 4 warriors – Khosi, Woodpecker, Loerie and Owl. It’s an adventure album filled with life’s lessons that you will surely enjoy!
King Bird was locally produced in the lavish landscapes of the Eastern Cape. Part of it was recorded in the Motherwell township in Port Elizabeth by our creative brother Adon Geel and the other part was recorded in the city of saints where we reside – Grahamstown( at the monument ) by another extraordinary fellow musician Luke Clayton. As you all know, Grahamstown also hosts the National Art Festival in which WORDSUNTAME has made several appearances in.
We have been very fortunate in the 6 years reaching to this point, since we are doing everything on our own. Many local people, after seeing us performing live, have eagerly volunteered their skills towards the creation of King Bird music and art. We’ve had photographers (Jacob Claasens, Kate Van Ransburg & Gina Figueira), videographers ( Elin, Noxy & Lilly of BLIPSTA PRODUCTIONS), Local artist Madelize who created the beautiful album artwork, vocalist Ohayv Ahbir and local social activist and friend, Xolile Madinda Director of FINGO FESTIVAL who has helped us in numerous ways for us to get where we are. We are grateful to you all!
Now that this album is done and beautifully sealed, we reach out to you music fans, family and friends to help us spread its positive vibrations!
Crowd funding is a way for us to make our TOUR-TORIAL journey possible. The music is now here and alive ready to move from one point to the next. We need YOU to help us get there.
We, Wordsuntame believe that every living being deserves a fulfilled and happy life. That the laws of nature are here for a reason to protect; guide & uplift every mind body & soul; that here is only one love and this love lives within each and every one of us equally able to evolve us back into our celestial origins.
Through your help – we are able to market our music and the philosophy it stands for. ‘Chance favors a man who packed his bags’ We’ve packed ours! We also believe that YOU believe in our music. You can pledge at our crowdfunding campaign and get some really awesome rewards in return!
Some of the rewards include: a signed copy of King Bird album delivered at your doorstep, tickets to a gig near you, King Bird merchandise, unseen behind the scene footage of the making of King Bird and so much more other cool stuff.Please see REWARDS below for more info.
Milestone 1 – R1 000
The Tipping Point
When we hit this point, we’re ready to hit the road! This will get us petrol fees from Grahamstown to the garden route just a little past Port Elizabeth, Jeffery’s Bay, knysna and back.
Milestone 2 – R5 000
This will take us from PE further to Johannesburg performing our way through the smaller towns right into the big City.
This will allow us the privilege of expanding our market and learn many things that comes with the artistically diverse culture of the JHB.
Milestone 3 – R30 000
The Ultimate Goal
We are so grateful!
You allow us to travel from JHB to DBN to Cape Town and back! At this point we have succeeded in our plans. We have expanded our market, influencing more beautiful SA people to think positively about life. We have built connections and bridges to take us even higher.
This also insures that our ride is in optimum strength all the way! We will also be able to book accommodation in backpacker for sleep. ( Some venues don’t offer accommodation )
The music is exposed and the people have heard. We really see that you believe in our music!
