SPELLS FOR BRIBES (article first published : 2008-05-4)

Durbanís Guy Buttery appears on Cape Town based acoustic-folk outfit Cabins in the Forestís debut album titled Spells for Bribes.

Making use of didgeridoo, 12-string and lapsteel guitars, the eclectic sound of Gary Thomas (vocals and guitar) and Andy Jamieson (vocals, guitar, lapsteel, didgeridoo) can best be described as a folk, jazz and rock fusion. They have developed a reputation for their captivating and intimate live performances as just a duo.

The album, however, features a full band (Kesivan Naidoo on drums and Shane Cooper on Double Bass) with a glut of extra talent in the form Ronan Skillen (Tabla), Dom Adelbert (sax), Rayelle Goodman (violin), Guy Buttery on sitar and Inge Beckman lending her vocals on the beautiful track Frenzy. The duo intends to start branching out with full band performances whilst still continuing to perform their acoustic shows.

Having just returned from a nationwide tour playing Splashy Fen, Durban and Johannesburg, the duo is looking forward to launching their album in Cape Town on May 9. Three free tracks available to the public can be downloaded from www.cabinsintheforest.com
