An unforgettable evening of stories & songs by accomplished Garden Route singers / songwriters, Tanja Storm & Albert Meintjes.
Tanja (vocals & keyboards) & Albert’s (acoustic guitar & vocals) individual performances & duets, a blend of originals & well-known covers, enhanced by their unique voices & exceptional instrumental techniques, promises to take their audience on an inspiring, captivating journey.
Inspired to write & perform his own compositions, Albert Meintjes’ strongest source of lyrical inspiration is drawn from life’s day-to-day happenings & the emotions they evoke & his stories are of love, adventure & the all-too-often, unseen natural, surrounding beauty. Beautiful originals, like “Dune 45” (official music video) & “Freedom”, amongst others, will be performed by Albert. Tanja Storm, also no stranger to the music scene, brought you the Eva Cassidy Tribute at The Drama Factory. She will perform numerous of her singles like “Môreson” and "No Place Like Home", that were no. 1 on our local S.A. music charts, her popular hit song, “Hi Hi”, an ode to Mossel Bay, where she hails from, as well as a few popular covers that the audience can identify with and relate to.
Tanja Storm, gifted, prolific, creative & multi-talented, skilled vocalist & musical director, released her self titled debut album in 2009 and only recently returned to the studio after years of successful projects with various cover bands, collaborating with and backing other artists, and theatre work such as Rockolution: The Evolution of Rock. She released her new album, ‘Ek is Oppad’, featuring her popular hit songs, “Hi Hi” in 2019. Many of her music videos are on KykNet. Tanja worked remotely with other artists, including Albert Meintjes, to live stream their shows and record new material, during the Covid-19 outbreak in S.A. & the lockdown. She released 3 brand new singles during the lockdown and even arranged a theme song for a documentary. Albert Meintjes made his introduction to South African stages in 1996.

Albert performed his Tribute to Koos du Plessis in 2019 - 2020 & his latest hit song, “Freedom”, won him a Global Music Award in 2020.
