Cherry Pill

Cherry Pill Music Productions
Johannesburg, South Africa
The founding members of Cherry Pill, Kristel Birkholtz and Rory Gaddin, are a songwriting and performing duo who are passionate about using the violin, guitar and voice to write story-telling songs which draw on a range of influences as diverse as Sting, Massive Attack, Lauryn Hill and Norah Jones, as well as their extensive experience in playing styles ranging from rock, Latin American, classical and jazz. The result is a rich musical experience which promises to take listeners on a journey which is at times searching, at times uplifting, yet always honest and engaging.

Since releasing their début CD in late 2014, Cherry Pill have had the opportunity to perform their songs at MIDEM 2015 in Cannes. It was on this trip to France that Kristel and Rory met and collaborated with the soulful Tshepo Monareng on keys and piano and the fresh and funky young bassist Thabang Malete and included them in into the band line-up. Drummer Warren Knocker is the newest addition to the Cherry Pill fold, and adds his powerful sense of rhythm to complete the overall sound that is unique to the Cherry Pill band.
