Southern Lights Band...
...is an exciting four-piece outfit from the Cape Winelands in South Africa, making music since 2003. It was only in 2015 that the band name, Southern Lights, was adopted by these four friends. With an acoustic pop-rock, folk and African sound, combined with Triveno’s distinctive vocals and falsetto, it’s hard to place the band into a specific genre. Members are; Triveno Smith taking lead on vocals and acoustic guitar, tearing it up on electric is Werner Carstens, grooving on the bass is Jandré Viljoen and keeping ‘four on the floor’, Gavin Young. Sadly in 2017, our lady of the band and then bass player, Alecia Smith, passed away after a valiant battle with cancer.
In 2016, the band along with award winning producer Helmut Meijer, released their debut single, ‘Looking for Love’ on iTunes and other major online music stores. In August 2016 they made their television debut on SABC 2’s Hectic Nine9 when they had the opportunity to play ‘Looking for Love’ during a Live broadcast. The ‘Looking for Love’ single has since also been play-listed by numerous radio stations such as GrootFM, RSG, TygerbergFM, Cape Pulpit and Zone Radio.
