Parable Fifteen:

Often touted as the next big thing, Parable Fifteen is a Durban-based band comprising of four musicians who consider themselves family. Described as “Rock” / “Country Rock”, Parable Fifteen began their journey in 2010.

Band members, Marc Skarda (Vocals), Adam Fanner (Guitar), Bryce Breeds (Bass Guitar) and Marius Botha (Drums) - combine their various individual tastes and styles to create a sound that is both nostalgic and fresh.

Each member is an accomplished artist in their own right. Breaking records in 2021 with four Top 10 charting songs. Parable Fifteen was the only South African Band to have three singles in the Top 50 songs of the year.

2023 saw the release of their fourth full length album “Within the Margin of Error”

The new songs not only inspire but are derived from life experience and host a winning combination of vibrant energy and a host of intriguing melodies which cannot be pinned to any specific genre, experimenting with an eclectic mix of alternative, melodic anthemic, country and rock.

In any context, Parable Fifteen’s audiences experience the band’s music in ways that are dually intuitive and physical, as their music seeks to stimulate the musically-minded while also providing those merely seeking a good time with a good reason to party


South Africa’s Winterstand is a top-flight original rock band that melds cracking altrock power chords and acoustic guitars with the kind of melodies that launch long careers. The group’s recent album Glorious Life shows them to be adept at creating emotive songs that hit hard enough to move any crowd but still deliver hit-single choruses, meaningful lyrics, and a touch of moody darkness that will pull on your soul. Band members Mike Jones (Guitar, Vocals), Albert Ackermann (Drums), Michael “Cromes” Cromie (Bass), and Stephen Brink-Jones (Guitar) have been Winterstand for over two years now and have developed a sound that’s influenced by Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Creed, Live, and Radiohead but always remains fearlessly unique.

Winterstand creates music for the sheer joy of the process, a love that’s readily apparent in every note they play. Though they’ve faced challenges and hardships, the band keeps on turning real life into amazing songs and refuses to let anything get in the way of that. They have chased greatness with an enviable perseverance that will no doubt lead them to success. Fans of great alternative/indie rock built on quality song writing and genuine emotions need to get Winterstand into their daily rotation. Bigger things are clearly on the way.
