Born in Johannesburg, South Africa the now 22 year old always has always had her sights set on the entertainment industry.
As a child Cazz would constantly put on shows involving acting and singing for anyone who would watch and would drag her cousins, step sister and step brothers along to perform with her whether they liked it or not.
“My grandmother said from the day I could crawl that I was going to be an actress and that I was destined for ‘the big time’. She never doubted that for a second.”
At 15, Cazz successfully enrolled in a music academy called The Institute of Music Excellence (T.I.M.E) in Centurion. For the next 3 years she had to juggle high-school and the very demanding, yet exciting music academy, but never once did she dream of quitting for the easier school days. “The philosophy at T.I.M.E was to push you to your limits as an artist and prepare you for the industry. It forced you to become confident and be able to perform on the spot. I wouldn’t be where I am today without Sheldon Rocha Leal who headed up the academy. He made me realize that I had the determination and talent to be successful.”
From then on Cazz went on to do everything in her power to create a successful music career for herself.
Cazz was signed to Gaenor Artiste Management in early 2013 and apart from acting, is currently working on her debut album with Howie Combrink (a singer/songwriter, as well drummer for Watershed). She released her debut single ‘Tipsy’ in late 2014 and the music video followed in early 2015 receiving its debut play on MTV Africa!
“The music video was a challenging but incredible experience and I worked with an amazing team called Luke Sharland Productions who pulled off exactly what I wanted.”
Cazz then went on to make her debut performance at Oppikoppi in August and White Mountain Festival in September.
She’s just released her newest single (as in 5 minutes ago) titled ‘Electricity’ which is incredibly well written, infused with her heart & soul & produced with a quality that Hollywood would be jealous of.
Cazz also teamed up with the already well known & talented Kyle White who has crafted a bunch of amazing videos with the likes of Rubber Duc, Dream Team & Cassper Nyovest to bring to life an electrifying music video to accompany the single.
She will be dropping her debut EP in the middle of this year with a mid year tour to follow & if “Electricity” is anything to go by… its going to be a world class album & we can’t wait.
