PORT Elizabeth patrons will get a chance to be entertained by the acclaimed Durban artist, Rowan Stuart, on Wednesday, August 23, as he embarks on a solo national tour. Stuart is known for having created an inimitable brand of “folk-meets-pop” music, seamlessly crossing over from acoustic singer-songwriter to radio-charting pop artist, while retaining his signature depth of content. Recalling Sting’s imaginative storytelling, Death Cab For Cutie’s sense of space and beauty and John Mayer’s tight grooves, Stuart uses his notable prowess on the guitar as the foundation for his creativity.His career came into full swing in 2014 with the release of his acoustic album, Hidden Doors. He has since toured South Africa and opened for some of the country’s biggest acts, including The Parlotones, Prime Circle and Matthew Mole. A maestro guitarist, he is a brand ambassador for Cort Guitars. His single, Silver Balloon, released late last year, was playlisted on major radio stations across South Africa, including 5FM, East Coast Radio, Algoa FM, KFM and 947. “I’m a natural introvert, and I live mostly in my head. Sometimes my inner world filters through into the songs I write,” Stuart said. “The stage is my favourite place to share this inner universe with others – where words and music turn my thoughts into reality for a moment.”The Innerworld Tour performances will include brand-new unreleased material, acoustic interpretations of songs from his five albums, and reimagined cover versions, as well as his hit single, Silver Balloon.Doors will open at 6pm for the performance which will start at 7:30pm at The Music Kitchen in Newton Park (69 Mangold Street). Tickets are available at R50 per person. For bookings and more info contact 072 994 5096.
