Multi-instrumentalist, Charné has music flowing through his body, everyday! Born into a Cape Town home in ’85, witnessing a country in transition, he has lived his whole life drawing inspiration from numerous cultures of the Cape.
Music was a part of his life since he could remember, from his father’s listening sessions, to his band practices in the lounge – Charné was there with toy guitar in hand.
Charné has been part of a range of different ensembles and bands playing a variety of instruments, but settling on vocals, guitar and double bass. The most exciting thing is the improvisational element, when preparation gives way for something unexpected, that’s where he is most at home.
Charné’s preferred styles of music are Pop, Rnb, jazz, rock and folk, where he performs as a soloist, in a pop jazz duo as well as full band for larger occasions where required.
