Digby and The Lullaby visit KZN for more romance, tears and goosebumps…..
Digby and The Lullaby are the indie singer-songwriting duo that’s stirring hearts all over South Africa. Although their musical partnership spans just two years, Rouchelle Hubsch and Darren Digby Peens have already been hailed by their growing collection of fans as a match made in heaven.
On piano and lead vocals, Rouchelle Hubsch plays and sings with a haunting depth of emotion that far surpasses her young age. As an only child, Rouchelle found the piano a profoundly rewarding companion.
On guitar and backing vocals, Darren Peens fell in love with music when he was just 6 years old these days, armed with a Dictaphone a note pad and an acoustic guitar, Darren never stops creating.
Collectively influenced by anyone with tons of heart and a great song, Digby and The Lullaby thrive on intimate performances. The theatre is this band’s first choice of venue. “It makes our connection with the audience so real and tangible,” smiles Rouchelle. Digby and The Lullaby have just finished tracking their debut album in New York with producer Kieran Kelly (Angust and Julia Stone, Sufjan Stevens) they are aiming for an early 2013 release.
Live performances to date include shows at The Chaplin in Port Elizabeth, Googies in New York and the prestigious Hilton Arts Festival in Durban two years running – where extra seating had to be put in after their first performance. Ralph Piaden (the Fleur du Lys’ theatre manager) commented that they were ‘the most complimented act’ in his theatre throughout the festival.
" The joy of hearing these two stays with you long after you leave. After just a few minutes you will be hooked and you will leave wanting more and yet feeling full and sated. Be proufoundly affected in the best possible ways. Miss something else don't miss Digby and the lullaby!! Graham Ward – (Drummer, Paul Mcartney, Tom Jones, Ray Charles)
Goosebumps, standing ovations, and an audience moved to tears are not uncommon at Digby and The Lullaby shows. When you click play, you’ll understand why.
