Beat-boxer, Singer, Songwriter, Guitarist, Live-Looper, One-man Band - Loneraynger (25) Looping his voice live onstage, Loneraynger sews together layers across a broad range of genre’s, creating an astounding brew of beat boxing, vocal instrumentation and rhythm/lead guitar. Loneraynger has opened the stage for Redwood, Real-Estate Agents, The Dirty Skirts, Steve Newman, The Beams and many more... He won the South African ‘Vocal-Wars’ 2006. Additionally, he came second/runner up at the South African Hip Hop Indaba beat-box battle 2006. At Splashy Fen 2006 he opened the Grant Erskine stage on both days, and made the final round of the ‘battle of the bands’ competition. He was also one of the new members of the multi-talented, diverse, and up and coming crew, “The Grime Council” when he lived in the mother city......which he misses incredibly muchly “ I very quickly lost interest beatboxing in Hip-Hop battles, and branched off in attempt to create my own genre. My style of beat boxing/vocal percussion uses a different technique of kick release, nasally dominated as opposed to the typical ‘mouthing’ techniques. This had pro’s and cons. Cons – it was initially harder to mic up as there was significantly less air being released on the kicks, and it was hard to get the levels of the vocals right if I was doing a beat at the same time. The pro’s – doing a break beat, a bass line an lyrics at the same time became a serious option without compromising integrity of lyrics
