Good Things Guy aims to inspire South Africa with music over this difficult time!

 

South Africa (7 April 2020) – With South Africa on lockdown, one of our largest pools of natural talent is unable to provide much-needed inspiration to the nation.

Musicians around the country have the ability to both inspire and entertain, two qualities much needed for the nation right now.

The reality is that even after the lockdown period has ended, for many South African artists the prospects of earning income are slight as social distancing is expected to remain for many months into the future, effectively destroying the live music industry.

Good Things Guy, in partnership with top South African musicians, aims to change that, by streaming a series of intimate performances to the South African public over major social media channels and on the web. Using a unique and secure interactive platform top South African artists will perform intimate concerts from their houses while taking part in live chats on the stream, and even asking the audiences to nominate the next song, or explain the background to the track.

The Good Things Guy platform will promote the sessions as a means to support South African talent over this difficult time.
