Biografie

Gideon has been an active musician in South African music since the mid eighties, writing mostly with original English music. He released his first production in 1993 titled Jeshua with Zamar Productions in Stellenbosch.

In 1996, he started working on a new Afrikaans concept album including a more bluesy sound than was the norm at that stage in mainstream Afrikaans music, but interrupted this project when moving to the Netherlands in 1998.

In the Netherlands Gideon concentrated on adapting to society, and living life in general. Though not extremely active as a musician during that time, he played with a rock/party band called "The Swinging Blue Screens" as vocalist and guitarist.

 

In 2002, Gideon moved to Saudi Arabia, for a work opportunity with an IT company and played bass and sang lead for the Rock band "Consortium". Even though music as a form of entertainment is frowned upon in Saudi Arabia, there is a vibrant expat community and Consortium had a very busy schedule playing at embassy functions and at private gatherings. During this period, Gideon also played with several other bands as guest musician.

He is currently based in Dubai and jamming with a group of enthusiastic fellow musicians from various cultural backgrounds. His son David is drummer for the group and styles covered are blues, Jazz, Rock with strong acoustic sound.

His latest solo album, "Murg" was produced by Johan Kelber in Pretoria, South Africa. Collaborating musicians include Johan Kelber (tjello and keys), Neill Ettridge (drums and percussions), Mauritz Lotz (guitar), Denny Lallouette (bass) and Barry Snyman on the Sax. The album consists of 12 tracks - 10 in Afrikaans, and 2 in English - and styles include a fusion of Rock, jazz, blues and folk with strong acoustic overtones.

Murg was released in April 2008.
