Rubber Duc – International Entertainers

Rubber Duc – International Entertainers have become a South African radio favorite since the release of their first hit single in March 2014. Rubber Duc are now available through Speakers Inc.

The group have recently been named a finalist in the prestigious International Songwriting Competition. Apart from the opportunity to win huge prizes, they’ve been heard by judges including Bastille, Lorde and Tom Waits.

Although their style and genre is hard to define, Amiel calls it the love child of Mango Groove and Mumford & Sons – their music appeals to a diverse group of people across all age groups.

Rubber Duc – International Entertainers believes that music provides the platform to bring people together, to change the world, even if just for a moment. In their own words: “When people sing your music back to you, whether it is one person or a thousand, the point is that the message has touched someone in one way or another!

Rubber Duc’s music is uplifting, positive and appealing. Whether it is a satirical take on life, like ‘Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That‘, a touching love song like ‘Feet‘ or an anthem like ‘It’s Alright‘, their songs tend to get stuck in your mind.

Their up-beat and enthusiastic onstage personality makes Rubber Duc a hit during live performances.

In addition, each member plays a part of the drum kit in addition to their ‘main’ instruments on their feet which makes watching them as entertaining as hearing their music.

Rubber Duc released their much anticipated album in September 2016. Conceptualized and created on the road between shows, ‘The Secret Sunrise‘ which was produced, recorded and mixed at Openroom Studios in Johannesburg by Grammy and SAMA award-winning engineer and producer, Darryl Torr and former Zebra & Giraffe front-man, Greg Carlin.

“We can barely contain our excitement for this album! ‘From Wellington’, which is about a little town in the Western Cape that we fell in love with, to ‘Feet’ which is about how difficult it is to sometimes be honest with the people we love, ‘Leaving Town’, letting go of that love, to ‘Faithful’, about being in love with what we do for a living. LOVE seems to be a recurring theme … These songs are a collection of our experiences, feelings, moments and memories we have made on this flipping awesome journey, which are all as beautiful as a secret sunrise.”

The album has been enthusiastically received by the public and critics alike.

‘The Secret Sunrise’ was nominated for two SAMA’s in the categories, ‘Best Alternative Album’ and ‘Best Produced Album’.
