Kyle shepherd – amazingly talented and acclaimed 25 year old pianist, composer and poet – and two time SAMA nominee for both of his past two albums, releases his latest studio album – “South African History !x”

Featuring late jazz giant Zim Ngqawana, who also had a hand in producing this release and who was a firm believer and supporter of Kyle’s talent, the album likewise features Kyle’s faithful quartet: Buddy Wells (sax), Shane Cooper (bass) and Jono Sweetman (drums).

A jazzy journey of exploration, and a fitting soundtrack to the history of his home country of South Africa – from the Xhoisan, migrant labourers, slaves and Cape Town focuses features a beautiful musical journey and tapestry out of the very top drawer!

"x in mathematics represents the unknown. For my generation of young South Africans, large parts of our history still remain unknown. Many of us are, however, committed to knowing ourselves through knowing our country and the truth around its history. Like all my work, this still remains a sincerely musical statement, with the music also offering a path to self-discovery." Kyle Shepherd

While naturally drawing on the rich tapestry of traditional South African music and Jazz, Shepherd’s musical works also point towards the evolvement of his own authentic voice, which, as renowned South African Jazz guru Gwen Ansell aptly put it, “live in the jazz world but are never imprisoned by it“.

International deals secured in USA, Germany and Japan, as well as several international tours past and coming, say a lot about Kyle’s quality and acclaim.
