Since their first hit single in March 2014, RUBBER DUC has become a South African favourite on radio and at live shows across the country! Nick Jordaan, Amiel Gopal, Sheldon Sham and Brendan Campbell have captured the hearts of fans of all ages.
They have been awarded an Honorable Mention in the Folk/Singer-Songwriter category finalist in the prestigious International Songwriting Competition 2017. The panel of judges included Bastille, Lorde and Tom Waits. Organiser Candace Avery says “Although being selected an Honorable Mention does not garner any physical prizes, with over 16 000 entries from 140 countries, ISC still considers you and ISC winner. This is a remarkable achievement of which you should be extremely proud.”
Although their style and genre is hard to define, their music appeals to a diverse group of people across all age groups. RUBBER DUC believes that music provides a platform to bring people together, to change the world, even if just for a moment… In their own words: “When people sing your music back to you, whether it is one person or a thousand, the point is that the message has touched someone in one way or another.
They have certainly done that! Their music is uplifting, positive and appealing. Whether it’s a satirical take on life, like “AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT”, a touching love song like “FEET” or an anthem like “IT’S ALRIGHT”, their songs tend to stick in your mind.
RUBBER DUC’S go-to director, the legendary Kyle White creates equally memorable videos. Have a look and listen on YouTube.
