Having started the year off well with a local record release in South Africa, a release in the UK and a release on a German record label, Hendrik Joerges is set off well to end off the first half of the year with the monumental release of his first ever solo vocal track. The release of ‘Nihility’ on Enschway, Awoltalk and MYRNE’s record label ‘Sola’ signifies Hendrik’s launch as producer / singer, whereas before he was exclusively a producer.
Hendrik picks up on the story:
“The music industry is beautiful sometimes. I am good friends with Jon Casey, through whom I came into contact with Tana [So Sus] from Canada. Long story short, I sent him Nihility in its early stages and he sent it on to Chris [Awoltalk], who apparently liked it enough to sign it.
The great thing about this record is that for years I have always wanted to relaunch my brand as a producer / singer, but I never felt confident enough. The fact that I now have a song release through a Los Angeles based record label, owned by some of my idols, has really given me the confidence to take this rebranding seriously.
You can expect many more similar projects from me in the future, and hopefully more releases through Sola!”
Apart from his productions, Hendrik has an influence in South African radio, having had his own segment on Goodhope FM, which led to him being featured as an influential personality in the South African edition of GQ magazine in April 2017.
