Raskells Cape Town based vocal troubadours, The Raskells , defy being pigeonholed, and celebrate the fact that each song tells a story and in a style all its own. On their All I Have -titled debut album you’ll find songs of universal resonance that are accessible, yet never dumbed down.
The band was born of a need to write and perform original music across multiple genres. Catch any of their live performances and you’ll find them moving seamlessly from Afro reggae, hip hop to trap soul you name it. Yet it all manages to sound cohesive — “strangely familiar” as one fan called it — and all part of the experience.
Songwriters Simphill , Tiny Temper and Slotah strive for their compositions to have memorable melodies that stand on their own, yielding an unmistakably musical foundation for their compelling lyrics. For the band, it’s all about the song. They deliver musical hooks, deft arrangements, and lush harmonies that provide a “just right” touch of color to support the emotional core of each song.
