We are joined in the singer Mariechan in the studio. Mariechan is best known for her time as part of the all female group Jamali, after they won Pop Stars back in 2004.
The Cape Town born singer started out her career as a part of Jamali, for nearly 10 years. After that she took a hiatus from music for a little while, but returned in 2014 with the release of her first single “Let Me Live My Life”, which was well received by South Africa, receiving quite a bit of airplay on radio stations. She found her voice as a versitile artist able to work in genres such as pop, R&B, soul, which is what has led her to working with some of biggest DJ’s and artists in the country.
The last time we saw her in the Afternoon Express loft, she was working on her debut EP, and last week she finally dropped it. The album is titled “Cherry Blossom”, and has finally been released for her fans to enjoy, after 5 years in the making, with it’s lead singles being “Lotto” and “Missed Calls”.
