Felicity and Lauren have been signed to South Africa’s biggest digital marketing company as solo artists. The Woman2Woman group, including the amazing Anray Amansure, is part of this deal.
Thank you to Paul De Klerk, director at Next music, for seeing the true potential of these artists!

The pair negotiated a contract and for two years he promoted her. Their partnership included a concert in St George’s Cathedral, an event that was attended by Premier Helen Zille. They raised enough money to buy 141 pairs of shoes for the orphans of Baphumelele in Khyelitsha, run by the amazing Rosie Mashale.
The second concert at Joseph Stone, Dear Younger Me, was hosted by the vibrant Miss Tracey Lange. Again the event raised enough to buy computer equipment for the orphanage.
Desne Jodamus is Lauren’s incredible mentor again asked if he would guide Lauren’s career.
These two artists are very different in character. Felicity is a tough cookie with a big heart – beneath the exterior is a kind and warm-hearted lady. She is generous with her time, hard-working and dedicated. Her greatest strength away from her beautiful booming voice is the accuracy of the advice she gives, garnered through vast knowledge and experience.
Lauren, although she has a determined streak, is kind-hearted. She has an engaging smile and a very disarming turn of phrase! Lauren has been voice coached by the incredible Amanda Luyt and was chosen as a motive of Can SkyLark.
On New Year’s eve the duo joined Ramaine at the Fire Zone at The V&A waterfront.
