One night in a totally impromptu moment Nathaniel and Elzahn’s love for music and collaborating collided. Both were to perform at an awards evening held by the radio station Elzahn worked at over weekends and there they were… Destined to sing and play together! That night we did our first performance together (without rehearsal) and have been making music together since that moment.
We formed an acoustic/folk tribute band that did our own renditions of Tracy Chapman’s music and from there the idea to sing and play the beautiful songs written by our favourite artists. Soon after Nathaniel and Elzahn started performing as a duo at weddings and other events, with receiving much positive feedback – The Gales were born.
Our mission is straight forward…
We want to share our love for good music and powerful lyrics with you. With majestic vocal harmonies and a simplistic instrumental set-up. We envision ourselves as a perfect complement to moments where you and your friends are gathered in love and care for each other, be it at your wedding, your engagement party, your birthday or your company’s opening or end of year function. If you desire a folky, acoustic act for background music then, this would be us, and… we could easily also become a performance that you would want to sit and watch and take in.
