Rock legend David Bowie awarded Ike’s songs repeatedly as "Top Song of the Month" on his web site!
‘South Africa’s own indie pop idol’ (The Citizen, Cape Argus) studied music and acting in South Africa, Germany and Holland after a jet-setting childhood. The multi-lingual singer, actor, producer and songwriter spent five years in London, fronting rock bands, performing in musicals and running his own label Mosquito Records London, before returning to his favorite country South Africa in 2005. He was voted one of the top five singers in SA in 2006. He is the resident entertainer at 3 most prestigious ‘5 star’ hotels in Cape Town. His songs have charted on SA radio while his music videos rock SA TV channels. Ike has performed at all major venues in Cape Town and Johannesburg with his band of top session musicians (e.g. Kirstenbosch, City Hall, Waterfront Amphitheatre, FTV, Back2Basics, Blues Room, Green Dolphin, The Crypt, etc.). Many top SA bands such as Judith Sephuma & The Parlotones, etc. have shared a stage with Ike Moriz. He is sponsored by Cape City Volkswagen & top UK fashion designer JAGADI Couture.
In 2016 Ike is promoting a brand-new original swing/jazz/latin CD #LoveSwings (itunes) filled with the sounds of some of Cape Town’s most renowned Jazz musicians. He is also launching a fresh & smooth lounge album entitled “DEBONAIRE”!
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”.
