MATTHEW MOLE

With over 10 million views on YouTube, ‘Take Yours, I’ll Take Mine’ made Matthew Mole an instant success. The South African’s debut album ‘The Home We Built’ drew comparisons with Owl City and Jason Mraz with its folky songs radiating good vibes. On last year’s ‘Ghost’, the Capetonian’s most recent album, Mole experiments a little, bringing his previously rather sparse electronica to the fore. The record sees him reflect on issues in his life like anxiety and insecurity, without sacrificing any of his positivity. He’ll definitely put a smile on your face when he visits the Witloof Bar.

WILL LINLEY

For Will Linley, a career in music was a distant dream. The 20-year-old musician & songwriter, born & raised in Cape Town, South Africa, can’t remember a time in his life without music. He grew up singing with his three brothers & his mom & studied classical singing in high school. The singer’s debut single, MISS ME (WHEN YOU’RE GONE), was written last October, inspired by a real-life experience. The song got traction after Will teased it on TikTok, and he & his producers have refined the emotionally-wrought tune since. Like all of Will’s music, MISS ME (WHEN YOU’RE GONE) evokes a universal connection & uplifting positivity. Whilst Will has found a global connection with fans thanks to TikTok, a platform to which he owes much of his success thus far, he is particularly excited about the South African connections that have been established whilst working on this project & he plans to continue collaborating with South African creatives, like Noble and the MISS ME (WHEN YOU’RE GONE) music video director Abongwe Booi.” A phrase commonly used amongst South Africans is ‘We’re stronger together’ & that is something I want to bring through in my music,” WILL notes, “It’s exciting to have the place I call home on display through my art.”
