Based: Cape Town
Empire Alight was conceived mid-2014 by four like minded professional musicians with the idea of bringing something fresh and unique to the Cape Town music scene. The band focuses on having modern repertoire with songs that aren’t overplayed, but that are still familiar and that the audience can relate to. Along with developing their own arrangements/ takes on modern pop tracks, they strive to keep their performance as organic and real as possible by avaoiding backing tracks and being able to interchange between quieter, intimate acoustic sets with percussion, or rocking out fully plugged for occassions that call for it. Most importanly they enjoy having fun on stage and sharing that connection with audience by creating a good musical atmosphere.
