Wizards of S.A.

John Wizards … 'It's an unusual thing.'

Each year I trawl the best of lists of the world’s music magazines and blogs to discover something I might have missed during my years listening.

Much of what I discover I wish I hadn’t but now and again there’s a hidden gem like John Wizards.

A multi-cultural band of South Africans, John Wizards self-titled debut (at least I think it’s their debut) is an eclectic mix of electro pop, lilting reggae, r&b and something entirely indefinable.

I don’t know what the long-term future for this band is but my ears are grateful that they put this album together and launched it on an unsuspecting world.
