Based: Cape Town
These are just some of the words used to describe Can Skylark , South Africa’s brightest new star. She is a woman driven by the strength of those before her, with a sound as free as her spirit and a singular ability to capture her audience with grace, musical precision and a profound gift for entertaining young and old. With more than 14 years of industry experience, she has graced some of the biggest stages across our beautiful country, including:
Barnyard Theatres (nationwide)
The Artscape Opera House
The Roxy Revue Bar at GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World
Cape Town International Convention Centre
The Victoria and Alfred Waterfront Auditorium, and many more!
She has also worked with well-known musicians like RJ Benjamin; Vicky Sampson; Jimmy Nevis; Keeno Lee; Leslie Kleinsmith; Mike Horne; Lee Gold; Gary Naidoo; Gorm Hjelford and Jone.
Her performances at tribute shows have garnered rave reviews and her greatest feat was flawlessly performing the incredibly challenging repertoire of Celine Dion. Four nights a week. For eight weeks.
If that doesn’t give you an idea of her musical ability, consider the fact that Can either wrote or co-wrote every track on her debut album PURE, which is a collection of well-crafted songs ranging from soulful and catchy pop tunes to roof-raising ballads. Two of the songs from PURE have already reached #1 on the Heart104.9 SA Top 10, and one of these is currently at #2 on their SA Top 30.
This is clearly just the beginning for Ms Skylark. She has been featured on Expresso; Kollig (Kyknet) and TaxiVision (CTV), and has an appearance scheduled on NootvirNoot in 2014. Her music has been playlisted on every major local radio station, as well as several international radio stations (including over 50 European stations). Her debut show “I’m Every Woman” was a sold-out extravaganza at the Barnyard Theatre, combining incredible original songs and covers sang in her unique style, bringing homage to incredible female performers past and present.
Make no mistake, the Can Skylark experience is a powerhouse package designed to captivate, entertain and inspire!
