Durban, South Africa.

Name of band:
Jakob Deist.

Kirill Teslia - Bass 
Steve McGeary - Drums and Percussion.

I think you can describe us as new blues with old school rules!

Who are your main influences musically?
The new CD they we are recording at the moment has a strong John Butler Trio and John Mayer influence.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
I'm a dreamer and therefore I want to go very far with my music! The songs have a message and I want it to be heard!

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Playing for the first time in SA with one of my best muso buddies! Playing the natural history museum was also quiet surreal!

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Haha, I've had tough moments in music but I never want to forget them! So really sorry to be boring but I'll prob have to say the broken strings that interrupt a song. 

If you could choose just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
That's a tough one! Prob the upcoming single really! That's the moment I'm in at this time and I feel it quickly previews my sound.

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music?
