Event Horizon was born out of the desire of band leader, Stuart Aberdein, to show how much could be achieved by a group of very talented but relatively inexperienced young musicians when channelled in the right way.
Jamie’s voice sounds as though it should come from a much older (and larger) singer. The emotion and depth she puts into material as diverse as traditional blues and songs by Evanescence’s Amy Lee shows a maturity beyond her years. From husky low notes to bell-clear highs, she excels. How many other young girls could sing Foo Fighters songs?
Jesse’s guitar solos display a fitting reverence for the masters like Hendrix, Clapton and Stevie Rae Vaughan, no doubt assisted by his lessons with Durban legend Barry Thomson. However they also show the freshness of more recent guitarists and his own style.
Hugo, true to his classical background, excels at beautifully rich piano backing, but has also become a master of the Wurlitzer electric piano as well as the Hammond B3 with Leslie.
Dylan’s drumming is remarkable. He shows maturity beyond his years with tasteful blues back-beats, but when unleashed he can also astonish his audience with blistering heavy-metal style double bass drum fills.
Event Horizon are a young band with the ability to play sensitive and innovative covers of a wide range of music. Their next aim is to work on original material.
Whatever it is, it is bound to be interesting.
