International SA singer, producer & actor IKE MORIZ (Cosmopolitan hot talent) has recently embarked on a journey into the Jazz/Swing world and reemerges with a trilogy of new albums entitled STARDUST, BODY & SOUL and "ANGEL EYES (2009) featuring SA saxophonist Willie van Zyl and UK pianist A. McPike produced by Ike himself. He has also just recorded his 7th studio album, "Starry Night", for the Xmas season. It contains some of Ike's original songs as well as jazzy versions of Xmas classics such as 'Let it Snow', 'White Xmas' and 'Silent Night'. The title track video was recently shot in Northern Germany (Sternwarte, Hamburg - Bergedorf / special thanks to Mike Hoffmann (DOP), Mike Weil, Stefan Herrmann (gaffer), Daniela Morilla (actress), Lars Pestrup & the conservatory Bergedorf).
All 3 new albums are already released online and will hit the shelves later next year in South Africa. Ike is drawing from his early Jazz studies in Holland & Germany to bring you this feast of gems from the Jazz & Swing songbook.
The Capetonian has received wide acclaim for his previous 3 albums All Around the World, Mirrors & Shade and Play Me and his original songs were played in 17 countries worldwide. Ike has also acted in many major feature films such as Alfie, Shanghai Knights and Love Actually, while also appearing in local TV programs like TOP BILLING & BACKSTAGE, as well as UK TV series Eastenders, Family Affairs and The Bill et al. Rock legend David Bowie himself voted Ikes songs as top song of the month on his web site! South Africas own indie pop idol (The Citizen, Cape Argus) studied music and acting in South Africa, Germany and Holland after a jet-setting childhood. The singer, actor, producer and songwriter spent 5 years in London, fronting rock bands, performing in musicals and running his own label Mosquito Records London, before returning to his favorite country SA. His songs have taken the SA radio charts by storm while his music videos rock SA TV channels with FHM super model Lisa-Marie Schneider in the lead.
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. For further information visit www.ikemoriz.com.
