About Grassy Spark
Grassy Spark is a unique fusion of Ska-blend with multiple genres, where the end product is pure elation. Their beauty lies in the relevance and authenticity of each live show as they go out of their way to appease and connect with their crowd. Their sound, style and use of genre seeks to connect with a diverse crowd, with the intention of unifying the whole.
Grassy Spark have performed at all major festivals in South Africa to date, including Rocking the Daisies, Splashy Fen and Oppikoppi. October 2015 saw them winning the Vodacom in the City competition where they opened for headline acts - The Cat Empire, The Kooks, and Milky Chance for a 10 000 strong crowd at Emmarentia Dam (Johannesburg). They travelled up the East coast of South Africa in December 2015, ending their tour at Kirstenbosch Gardens (Cape Town) as the opening act for a sold out NYE crowd.
Following the signing of a record deal with Gallo Record Company in mid July 2016, their self-recorded debut 11-track album ‘Portal’ was released exclusive to iTunes & Apple music on the 12th August and all other digital and physical platforms subsequently. Their hit singles ‘Here I Am’ and ‘Feel It’ have seen number 1 on the 5fm ‘SA top 10 at 10 indie chart’ more than once. Both singles have also made their way into the top 10 of the SA top 30 chart. Other songs on the album feature artists such as The Rudimentals, TheCITY, Jeremy Loops, and Nomadic Orchestra. With ‘Portal’ they have taken the accessibility of Ska music to a completely universal level, moving through genres like mother nature moves through its seasons. ‘Portal’ is not just an idea - its a gateway that encapsulates the many facets and emotions of the human experience.
The boys were recently hand picked by UB40 themselves, as an opener for their South African album release tour to sold out shows in Cape Town, Johannesburg, and Durban. You don’t simply dance or move to Grassy Spark, you feel their groove at your core.
