FLYING HIGH AND FEELING STRONG

With Four SAMA Nominations!

Cape Town-based all-girl trio BlackByrd are delighted that their debut album, ‘STRONG’ has received such wonderful recognition from the South African Music Industry with today’s announcement of the SAMA nominees.

The beautiful, warm and friendly young ladies today celebrated their amazing four nominations, which confirmed that their musical talents have been very much noticed and acknowledged by the SAMA judges. Coming on top of all their chart success and extensive airplay throughout the country, their four nominations are the culmination of a super-successful year. BlackByrd have been nominated for Best Adult Contemporary Album, Duo or Group of the Year, Best Producer and Best Engineer (the very talented Mark Beling).

Judging by the extreme media interest in the young ladies, and the widespread wishes of congratulations coming from all quarters, BlackByrd and their nominations have proved to be a very popular choice. Clearly, the singing, song-writing and guitar-playing on their debut album, ‘STRONG’ has struck a chord. All but one of the fourteen tracks are original compositions, written by lead vocalist, Tarryn Lamb, most certainly adding to the credibility of this extremely talented young act. Lamb, along with Tamsyn Maker and Samantha Heldsinger, has earned the respect of the South African Music Industry, and the future looks extremely bright for BlackByrd.

BlackByrd’s album, ‘STRONG’ proves that nothing succeeds like a good well-written song, sung well with passion and sincerity, and well-produced. Their structured, easy-listening brand of adult pop with a tinge of country, clearly reaches a broad adult contemporary audience captured internationally by such artists as Lady Antebellum and Shania Twain.
