Chocolate Box

by Cherry Pill

Chocolate Box takes you on a musical journey, with each song evoking a different emotion - from the wistful romanticism of "Silent Movie" to the darkly brooding "Bare", the pulsing rhythms of "Shoreline" to the tender contemplation of "Things on My Mind".

Album Notes
Cherry Pill is a band based in Johannesburg, South Africa which showcases the original songs of Kristel Birkholtz and Rory Gaddin. Since forming in 2004, the band's music has grown and transformed into a blend of musical styles ranging from acoustic folk to upbeat pop rock, with strong influences from classical and jazz music, as well as influences as diverse as Massive Attack, Lauryn Hill and Sarah McLachlin. The culmination of this musical evolution is the album Chocolate Box, featuring drummer Wynand van der Walt and bassist Cesare Cassarino. Multi-instrumentalist Anthony Caplan also makes an appearance on the exotic "Sahara", playing the Udu (clay drum) and Kundi (a harp-like stringed instrument from Central Africa).

Chocolate Box is a collection of songs written and refined over a number of years, and tells the stories of a variety of experiences and emotions inspired by the people and places that have touched the lives of the members of the band. We hope it takes you on a musical journey, too.

Chocolate Box by Cherry Pill
Chocolate Box is a wonderful album woven together by two very skilled musicians, the husband and wife duo of Kristel and Rory. For music enthusiasts, this album is a beautiful arrangement of strings, keys and percussions, backed by soothing lyrics from the warm intertwined vocals of this stunning couple. Kristel’s beauty and talent, through her wonderful control of the violin, are equally matched by her voice which paints a musical picture in each of the pieces on the album. The theme song is an assortment of coffee sidewalk activity with a delicate dipping of soft-centred sensitive inner feelings. There is a nice retro feel in Silent Movie matched by the lazy feelings one has on Sunday Afternoon. The arrangement of tunes contains a lovely mixture of instrumentals on the camel-trotting Sahara, the feet-tapping ethnic feel of Sonwabo and the chilling On The Run. The album is a wonderful fusion of acoustic guitar and violin, interspersed by a soothing background rhythm. There is a unique combination of Spanish guitar and keyboards backing the soothing voice and violin from Kristel on the track Bare, which is my personal favourite. The album ends appropriately on Things on my Mind. Dip into this wonderful assorted selection in the Chocolate Box and you’ll be pleasantly surprised – Julian M Turner (music enthusiast)
