introducing Bye Beneco, Medicine Boy & Dorothy Bird


Bye Beneco

Hailing from Johannesburg, South Africa, this eclectic dream-pop sensation is making waves both locally and abroad. With a sound that stems from various styles, they refer to their opus as somewhat of a "musical ADD". Bye Beneco's live shows are as much a visual journey as they are musical.

The SAMA (South African Music Awards) nominated band toured Europe in 2016 / 2017, performing at the likes of Stimmen Festival (Lörrach) & Ancient Trance Festival (Leipzig).

Bye Beneco's latest EP, Ghetto Disko is available on iTunes and Apple Music.

Be sure not to sleep on this one as they prepare their 3rd annual Euro tour in 2018.

"The music creates a beautiful soundscape that is very easy to digest and leaves me inspired."
- Gavin Lurssen, Grammy Award winning mastering engineer.

Medicine Boy

Medicine Boy is a Dream Noise duo from Cape Town, South Africa.

Influenced by the likes of Rowland S. Howard, Spiritualized, The Mary Chain and The Bad Seeds, the pair tread the fine line between the calm and the chaotic.

Formed in 2014 by André Leo (vocals/guitar), Lucy Kruger (vocals/keys) and a drum machine, the band quickly began headlining shows and festivals in South Africa and toured Europe and the UK in 2015 + 2016.

The band’s sound is as much about the noise as it is about the spaces between. Grinding organ sinks beneath waves of guitar that are at times gentle and drifting, at others feral and unforgiving. Lucy and Andre’s voices remain entwined and intimate.

Dorothy Bird

Poetic and heartfelt Indietronica / Art Pop explores the beauty and honest fragility of being

Dorothy Bird (Indietronica/ Art Pop). Dorothy bird’s music creates spaces in which her voice can shine a light out of the dark. Using a mix of analogue synths, electronic rhythms, guitar, strings and skilful arrangement, Dorothy treads a bold path between the intimate and the epic, the ethereal and the concrete, from deep sub bass movement to glistening vocals and delays and often in combination with live visuals, she guides her audiences through an all encompassing and emotional experience.

Julia Fiebelkorn aka Dorothy Bird (DE) lives and works as a composer and singer in Berlin and Liverpool. Before studying music, she studied a few semesters philosophy, German and Bulgarian literature and worked as an actress and director of musical and scenic readings at theatre TIK in Berlin. She studied vocal jazz music at the University of the Arts in Bremen. She writes all the songs for her band Dorothy Bird (Indietronica / Art Pop) and composes stage music for interdisciplinary projects with music, visuals, poetry, dance and acting and for the Center for Moving Art ZBK, an artistic project with social responsibility for an inclusive society.

Julia has performed her music and stage music at international music and art festivals such as 48 Stunden Neukolln 2015, 2016 2017, Threshold Festival Liverpool, Expat Expo 2017 and in Wintergarten and Chamaleon in Berlin. In 2016, she received a one-year artist's residency in Liverpool, where she has lived and composed until the autumn of 2017. She gave concerts a.o. in Grüner Salon Volksbühne, B-Flat, Kunstfabrik Schlot, Kaffee Burger, SO36, Lido, Haus der Sinne and other venues in Germany and Europe. In 2011 and 2014 she released her stage music for the ZBK, 'Beziehungsweise'' and 'Switch.auss welt innen', and the music for the new show 'EinzigARTig' will be released for the premiere in June 2018. As Dorothy Bird she has released the EP 'Falling Awake' in 2015 and the single 'Flowers' in 2017. Her new EP 'Out of the Dark' is released on 23. Februar 2018.
