Following the release of his first cathartic solo single “Into The Rain” and the music video for “Bedtime Sweater” from his upcoming solo album “The Great Valley Redemption”, singer and rock songwriter Jacques Moolman is back with a third single called “Tear Eyed Moon “.
Moolman’s new work offers a break with reality and offers a kind of therapy for the banality of modern life, highlighting the deepest facets of the human experience. It is a chance to reflect, to experience and to be present in the moment, something extremely necessary in these times of instability.
Over the past 10 years, South African singer and songwriter Jacques Moolman has become synonymous with the great vocal legends of his generation. Recognized for his role as the leader of SAMA-winning rock band Shadowclub, Moolman is now set to open a new chapter in his musical career with his debut solo album “The Great Valley Redemption”.
The musician who lived in Gauteng grew up in Johannesburg and studied art and theater before moving to London in 1998. It was after his return to South Africa in the early 2000s that he decided to enter the arena of music production. Improvising melodies on his grandmother’s piano since the age of five, while embracing the emotional effect melodies had on him as a child, Moolman felt the music in his head from an early age.
Tear Eyed Moon is a new single from Jacques Moolman’s new album
Today, Moolman chooses the guitar as his main medium of musical expression, but he also plays bass, piano and drums, influenced from his youth by his father’s love for jazz, blues and a wide range of musical styles.
Influenced by singers like Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Iggy Pop, Jack White, Radiohead, Nirvana, Aretha Franklin and The Beatles, to name a few, Moolman relates to the brutality of the blues, as well as 1960s bands like The Doors and The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
Finding valuable music on a cathartic level while seeing the world around us a little differently from others, Moolman uses melodies and lyrics to process the emotions and thoughts he experiences on a daily basis.
Now Moolman is ready to return to his musical roots as a solo actor – using the brutality of his voice on guitar to anchor “The Great Valley Redemption”. This album is a salute to the years spent in the Northwest and a small record of experiences between that time and today, mixing Americana, country, blues, folk and rock ‘n’ roll.
