The Graeme Watkins Project

12 Months ago, the world was pretty “safe” – the economy was still in tact, the future was bright and in SA Music, Season 5 of Idols was in full swing. Little did we all realise that someone, and something, special was being unearthed – Graeme Watkins.

With his unique personality and edgy song-choices, Graeme soon became a fans favourite in Idols. And despite achieving “Runner Up” status, Graeme vowed to return to the big stage, on his own terms, as a fully-fledged musician … and that time is now!

Graeme has since teamed up with some of the most highly regarded and accomplished musicians in South African music to create his new initiative – The Graeme Watkins Project (GWP). Ryno Zeelie plays Lead Guitar (famed for playing with Danny K,

We Will Rock You and Rent); Rudo Pieterse on Bass (having played for Karen Zoid, amongst others) and Matthew Marinus on drums (notorious for his work in Fevertree, Zebra & Giraffe and Skouspel shows).

Despite being a simple “3-piece band”, GWP produces one of the biggest sounds around. GWP brings a dirty, edgy, rough approach to a medley of pop, indie, rock and electronic genres.

“A Masterpiece is a stroke of genius in a moment of madness… So live life like a madman” is Graeme’s motto, and there is definitely madness incorporated into his music. When listening to the first three recorded demo’s, it’s hard to believe these songs were written and recorded over a 2 week period!
