Bonj Mpanza, an award winning and UCT School of Music trained vocalist, and music producer and multi-instrumentalist Clement Carr, also a UCT School of Music graduate, have been working on their debut album since 2009. Joined by Ryan McArthur on bass (Captain Stu, The Little Kings and Peachy Keen), and current UCT student he was the perfect choice to complete their live performance.
In 2010 TheCITY had the opportunity to work with two-time Grammy Award winning American producer Ron Feemster (from Ne-Yo, Nelly and Mary J Blige fame, he also served as producer on Michael Jackson’s posthumous album Michael). This opportunity was made possible when the producer visited South Africa during the World Cup when it was hosted in South Africa. Ron invited the TheCITY to join him in an intimate workshop programme that included, amongst other artists, Chad Saaiman.
2012 has seen them being endorsed by Hout Couture and performing live supporting Good Luck, Tidal Waves, Jack Parow and Plan Be (Sakhile of Goldfish’s project) amongst others.
Their new single ‘Reivelle’ was released on Monday 11th June 2012.
