Dr. Bone, rapper and KZN son signed to Warner Music South Africa and confirms the release date for his anticipated debut album Lindelani as 1 April 2016.
Few know that it was A&R legend, founder of Sire Records and Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Seymour Stein, who was instrumental in this signing. Over nearly 50 years in the music business, Stein has signed the likes of Madonna, The Ramones and Talking Heads to mention a few. He was also the first to sign South African supergroup, Juluka, for North America.
Says Stein, “I heard Dr. Bone on a trip to Durban last year and loved what I heard. I immediately contacted our South African office. I’m really excited that they recognized his potential too and signed him. I truly believe he has a great career ahead of him.”
“I remember when Seymour Stein first heard my music, he said, “You are a superstar. The world is ready for you”. I mean, this is Seymour Stein, how many guys get to hear him say that ?!”, says Dr.Bone
More good news for Dr.Bone yesterday was that he has been shortlisted for the exclusive Midem Artist Accelerator 2016 programme.
“Its been a busy few weeks. I’ve just shot the video for Noma Bhengu Khuluma and I cant wait for my fans to see it. This is such a special song for me, to sing with Mtshengiseni, my idol was unreal”.
Noma Bhengu Khuluma is available now on digital download everywhere.
