When news hit the street that Tailor would be performing at the MK Sage with Innibos this year, I did my geeky happy dance. I mean Tailor, in my hometown, my Innibos 2013 experience was set out to be amazing! Wednesday night arrived and the whole day was filled with getting word around to be at the MK stage at 20:00 sharp. An act that should not be missed will be on.
With a surprisingly large crowd for such a new up and coming act, Tailor’s voice rang through the air and everyone’s attention was immediately on her. Awestruck faces where planted on the stage and every note she sang was soaked up by fans made there and then. With every note perfectly on key, ever guitar strum played with such enthusiasm and all the sounds meeting each other in perfect harmony to create what might be South Africa’s finest duo. With ‘Shaped like a gun’, the fans who were watching her for the first time didn’t know what to expect when she put down the drumsticks and tambourine and sat down on one of the speakers facing the crowd. And then they heard it. A song so filled with emotion that one could not listen to it with feeling the pain and misery her voice rang with. Ladies becoming teary-eyed and men hardly blinking, Tailor shared the audience with her most raw and beautiful song.
Keep an eye out on local festival line-ups, as Tailor will be making major waves with events to come!
Many people search for great music overseas. Not having the faith in our local South African artists and then becoming fans of over commercialised music which they don’t truly enjoy.
It’s pointless searching for great music overseas. There are millions of amazing acts, don’t get me wrong, but why support them when you have local acts that are equally amazing, maybe even more so right here under your nose?
Tailor is one of those acts. With her raspy voice and perfectly-tuned notes she is the Janis Joplin of South Africa. Suddenly entering our music scene unannounced she has proven that great quality music will always be the preferred. When first heard, you don’t quite know whether you fancy her deep and emotional lyrics, but when you hit ‘replay’ you immediately fall in love. Her CD will be on replay in your car for weeks if not months on end. Her live performances will leave you teary-eyed and touched but most importantly her lyrics will speak to you and comfort you in times of need.
‘Wolf’, the song that made many South Africans open their hearts to her, is not your usual music video. It’s setup in a forest with her singing in a bathtub a lot and wearing a wolf mask while running from something – it’s different and alternative which shows us why it was nominated for an MK Award for Best Video.
Whether it’s indie you’re a fan of or whether you’re always on the lookout for unusual artists, Tailor should be on the top of your list for acts to look out for. (Suné Halderman)
