Since 2002, widely acclaimed international SA pop star, singer, producer, author and actor Ike Moriz has created 20 albums ranging from original melodic indie Rock/Pop to Latin/Easy Listening, Lounge, Blues and Jazzy. His songs are being played worldwide reaching No.1 in the UK, Holland, South Africa and Germany. Rock legend David Bowie awarded Ike’s early songs repeatedly as ‘top song of the month’ on his web site!
This prolific and versatile artist has also acted in many major international feature films such as ‘Alfie’, ‘Shanghai Knights’ and ‘Love Actually’, and he appeared in local TV programs like ‘Showbiz Report’, ‘Top Billing’ & ‘Backstage’, as well as UK TV series ‘Eastenders’, ‘Family Affairs’ and ‘The Bill’ and ‘Strike Back – Project Dawn’.
‘South Africa’s own indie pop idol’ studied music and acting in South Africa, Germany and Holland after a jet-setting childhood. The multi-lingual singer spent five years in London, fronting rock bands, performing in musicals and running his own label Mosquito Records London, before returning to his favorite country South Africa in 2005 where he was voted one of the top five singers in South Africa in 2006.
Ike has performed at all major venues in Cape Town and Johannesburg with his band of top session musicians (e.g. Kirstenbosch, City Hall, V&A Waterfront, FTV, Back2Basics, Blues Room, Oude Libertas, The Crypt). Other top artists such as the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, Judith Sephuma and The Parlotones, etc. have shared a stage with Ike Moriz. On his much anticipated “Millennium Hits Tour 2019” Ike promoted his very first ‘best of’ collection in Africa and Europe.
In 2020 Ike introduced his 20th studio album ‘Dragons’. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Dragons-Tour has been postponed to 2021.
