Riaan Nieuwenhuis

Guitarist/Drummer/Pianist Nieuwenhuis was responsible for the signature keys sound in the highly succesful South African group, Delta Blue for 5 years, and recorded 3 albums with them. Live performances included Oppikoppi and Splashy Fen main stages, Kirstenbosch Gardens, Oude Libertas Theatre and tours to Namibia and London.

Riaan’s keen interest in instrumental music started presenting itself as early as the Delta blue EP Turn, which is named after his instrumental track with the same title.
Nieuwenhuis’ double album Mediator,, is recorded at Sunset Studios, and was released in 2011. CD 1 of Mediator consists of melodic, solo tracks. CD2 retains the piano as center piece whilst including drums, bass, electric and acoustic guitars, sax, harmonica, organ and other instruments, to create more of a piano- groove album.

Nieuwenhuis released Instigator, at the end of 2012.This Hard-Rock instrumental album, is the first of its kind in South Africa. Here he pursues a real organic sound. It is a non-pretentious, solid, bold and deliberate, Hard Rock album, with the guitar as the premier and instigating instrument.
