While I was minding my own business a few years ago, I met Andre and we instantly connected on music and some of that #WineLove to follow. The rest is history creating a beautiful connection that has birthed a refreshing brand-new story.
On some days, it was music from 9:00 am till midnight and on others it was music all through the night without realising where time may have left us. One morning when Andre started paying these chords, Instantly I knew I was already there. Welcome to our new baby, the 1st of many “Already There” …..
Andre Scheepers is a South African song writer who has worked with many local artists including Tasha Baxter, Chiano Sky, Bobby Van Jaarsveld and Jesse Clegg to name but a few.
On this track, Sxeeps collaborated with songstress Tamara Dey to write the lyrics.
“I was fascinated by the calypso style, and island style rhythm."
"Calypso is a style of Afro-Caribbean music that originated in Trinidad and Tobago during the early to mid-19th century and eventually spread to the rest of the Caribbean Antilles and Venezuela by the mid-20th century. Its rhythms can be traced back to West African Kaiso and the arrival of French planters and their slaves from the French Antilles in the 18th century.” States Andre Scheepers (Sxeeps)
He explains further that this song is about escaping from your current situation. As long as you are with the one you love, you could be anywhere in the world. “Already There” depicts a fantasy of luxury and travel from the comfort of your own home.”
“It was an obvious choice and an honour to have the Kenyan-born beauty Liz Ogumbo lend her exotic voice to the track. She brings a tropical and whimsical mood to the song that no one else can.” Andre shares.
In response, I am grateful that our 1st collaboration which I describe as Rustic-Sensual . 'Already There' is here and I look forward to sharing more as we go and flow.
