The singer, who's known for singing some of the biggest songs by some of the biggest artists (think Freddie Mercury and Robert Plant then you get the idea) will be singing songs from his forth-coming album as well as what he calls, 'fan favourites'.

October will be supported by musician and composer Jaconell Mouton, guitarist and vocalist Hilandi Du Toit and Ane' Van Den Berg.

His guest artist for the shows will be close friend, iconic singer and songwriter Coenie De Villiers.

Fans will hear Brandon's take on rock classics like 'Smells like teen spirit' of Nirvana and AHA's 'Take on me'. 'Many of my musical influence come from the 80's. The high vocals, the big drums, screaming guitars, the whole lot. While writing for my new album I allowed myself to experiment more with those influences. I played around with synths, drum loops, atmospheric sounds, layered vocals with trippy-harmonies. Even my lyrical style has changed.' says Brandon

The two-time SAMA (South African Music Award) nominee has come a long way since he first launched his career 16 years ago. Since then he's released 3 solo albums, hosted 4 TV shows, played festivals around South Africa and toured throughout Africa, USA and Germany.

Says Brandon, 'Music changes all the time and different generations respond to music differently. As musicians we have to constantly evolve to stay relevant. It's like we're in a constant battle to be heard. It forces us to push ourselves creatively and to become more innovative. I've embraced platforms like Instagram and use that to reach and create a new target audience.'

The aptly titled show, Under an October Sky, will be a stripped down concert with more of an acoustic offering. Audiences will get the chance to hear and experience Brandon in the intimate setting of the Drostdy Theatre.

Tickets are available at Computicket.
