Ike Moriz

Since 2002, widely acclaimed international SA pop star, singer, producer & actor IKE MORIZ has created 18 albums ranging from original melodic indie Rock/Pop to Latin/Dance/Easy Listening, Blues & Jazzy Swing (all available on iTunes). His songs are being played worldwide reaching No.1 in the UK, Holland, South Africa & Germany. This versatile artist has also acted in many major international feature films such as ‘Alfie’, ‘Shanghai Knights’ and ‘Love Actually’, and he appeared in local TV programs like ‘Showbiz Report’, ‘Top Billing’ & ‘Backstage’, as well as UK TV series ‘Eastenders’, ‘Family Affairs’ and ‘The Bill’ et al. Rock legend David Bowie awarded Ike’s songs repeatedly as ‘top song of the month’ on his web site!

‘South Africa’s own indie pop idol’ (The Citizen, Cape Argus) studied music and acting in South Africa, Germany and Holland after a jet-setting childhood. The multi-lingual singer, actor, producer and songwriter spent five years in London, fronting rock bands, performing in musicals and running his own label Mosquito Records London, before returning to his favorite country South Africa in 2005. He was voted one of the top five singers in SA in 2006. He is the resident entertainer at 3 most prestigious ‘5 star’ hotels in Cape Town. His songs have charted on SA radio while his music videos rock SA TV channels. Ike has performed at all major venues in Cape Town and Johannesburg with his band of top session musicians (e.g. Kirstenbosch, City Hall, Waterfront Amphitheatre, FTV, Back2Basics, Blues Room, Green Dolphin,, The Crypt, etc.). Many top SA bands such as Judith Sepuma & The Parlotones, etc.) have shared a stage with Ike Moriz. He is sponsored by Cape City Volkswagen & top UK fashion designer JAGADI Haute Couture.

In 2017 Ike released an original 11 track pop/rock/blues CD (Gold Rush) filled with the sounds of some of Cape Town’s most renowned session musicians. 2018 marks the first 'best of' LP release, namely the 19 track song collection "Millennium Hits 2002-2018", comprised of titles from his 18 studio albums of the past 2 decades. Ike also published his very first 'Afrikaans' language single this year: a fresh arrangement of the nostalgic South African Louis van Rensburg hit 'Voshaarnooi'.

In the US, Ike was described as “Bowie without the glam meets Oasis without the self-importance teamed with UK chart alternative without the boredom”.
