Academie

Gauteng:
Building on their success with their debut single Sulphur, Alex and Jean-Louise Parker of Academie have launched their first EP entitled Volumes in May 2016. Joined by Gerhard Geyser on sax and keyboard for live shows, the wife and husband duo, known for their performances with the bands Dear Reader (Jean-Louise) and ISO (Alex), take their audience on a sensitive but exciting journey. Jean-Louise transports listeners with her ethereal and haunting vocals and vocoder effects while Alex, on drums and synthesizers, delivers a meditative electronic back-beat. Jean-Louise on viola contributes to a sombre tone cut through with occasional displaced abstract infusions from the sax and electric guitar.
The duo work from their home in Johannesburg which doubles as a creative atelier for the writing, recording and production of their music. Alex and Jean-Louise are well-known musicians on the South African music scene and are seasoned session musicians. They regularly perform live in South African venues and have both toured Europe showcasing their special brand of mystic pop.
