Singer / Songwriters - Female Vocals


A lady with heaps of talent & a deep love for singing, Chezane has the ability to perform many genres and to do so convincingly. She sings anything from Country, Pop, and Jazz to Afrikaans.

Chezane is also ‘n songwriter and therefore her focus is (at the moment mainly on the Afrikaans market) to produce original songs to the public. She already has 6 songs fully recorded of which 2, namely  “Vreemdeling” & “Voel hoe klop my hart”, are already playing on local radio station BayFM 107.9. “Vreemdeling” has been playing on BayFM since end of January 2010 and was on the “Goue Drome Top5 Local Sounds Charts”. It was on the Top5 for the full 15 weeks and kept the nr.1 position for 5 consecutive weeks. “Voel hoe klop my hart” has been playing on BayFM for the last 6 months and regularly gets requested by the public.

“Voel hoe klop my hart” also entered the Top5 Local Sound Charts on BayFM the 2nd of October 2010. There are great expectations for this song so be sure to listen to the Top5 on BayFM 107.9 from 9:45am on a Saturday morning. 

She released her first English song called “Better be you” which started playing on BayFM recently.

Chezane’s vision?

To live her dream by using her talent and writing abilities in a professional manner. (To make it big…)

Chezane writes: “When I was little I never imagined that I’d be interested in singing professionally although I had a major love for music all my life. I sang in the school choir for 9 years. A bit more than a year after school some friends & I went to a karaoke bar where I decided to try a song…. I got a great response from the crowd and decided that I’ll start collecting backtracks and try different songs. I realized that this was what I wanted to do.

In 2007 I entered a singing competition and decided that I wanted to make singing a major part of my life. I was totally hooked on singing. In 2008 I auditioned for Supersterre. Nothing came of that, but it didn’t take away the passion that was burning inside of me. From there on I started writing my own songs. Later that year I entered into a competition again and took 3rd place.”

Chezane was in a duet group, named RECAP, with Semandie Gerber for 6 months during 2009.They did various performances together and even wrote a song of which Chezane wrote the lyrics and Semandie did the composing. The song is named “Die Naweek Song”. Chezane writes: “It was a great experience to work with Semandie seeing as she has quite a few years of musical background”, although after 6months Chezane decided to work on her solo career.

In January 2010 she went for an audition arranged by Take 2 Productions and was said to be one of two best performers in Port Elizabeth. She was offered a chance to record her first music video, but financially it was impossible as the costs involved totaled @ R55 000.00. The info is attached with this profile.

In May 2010 Select Music offered Chezane a Publishing contract. She is currently working hard to write some hits for the already famous South African singers.

Chezane has a very broad taste in music and loves anything from Afrikaans to rave, country etc. She’s also one of those artists that can sing in practically any genre and as previously mentioned, a very enthusiastic song writer.“I enjoy putting my thoughts, feelings & experiences on paper. It’s therapeutic! And hearing the final product is the biggest reward!”

Chezane has a natural feel for a stage and can keep an entire crowd captivated till the last note with each performance.
Her dream is for her music and voice to be heard by people all over the world and to perform live on stages at the biggest festivals and on tours. She is 100% committed to her music and wants to be able to have it as a full time career because she can’t see herself doing anything else other than singing.
