Press Release

Freddie Van’Dango is a full time South African musician who is best known for having been in the top ten in Idols SA 2011. He’s debut album, “TONIK”, will be released September 2012. The album was recorded at Stoep Studios in Johannesburg with SAMA Award Winning producer Dan Roberts (Laurie Levine, Joshua Grierson).

Rollling Stone SA magazine named Freddie “The Idols Renegade”: “Freddie’s voice “is expansive and undisciplined – in the best possible way. Something like Pete Doherty meets Freddie Mercury with a scrap of Julian Casablancas thrown in for good measure – but, still, distinctively Van’Dango’s

Freddie`s extraordinary musical ability and sensitive songwriting has fans excited about his debut offering. He currently resides in the house of Van’Dango (a house filled with similar minded artists and musicians) in Melville and spends most of his time composing, writing and recording new and interesting, emotionally charged, rock and jazz influenced music.

Freddie says: “Dancy Rock, Pop and Romance with killer melodies are what you can expect from this CD. The kids like it. I really like the work of Charles Bukowski.  His work served as inspiration for quite a few ideas and images on my debut album. Alexirfarmic. Now that’s a word I got from Mr Bukowski. You’ll hear it on the opening track “TONIK”.

The first single off the album “Shadow” is currently play-listed on Highveld Stereo, UCT Radio, MFM and Bay fm.
