BiographyWilliam Blackrose's biography will be up and running soon..
After a limited release of his demo CD "Minor of Decent" William Blackrose was approached by BMG Records (Now SONY). After signing to the label the album was re-released as "Everything" Everything gained momentum on the South African pop charts and remained at the number one position for six weeks. Hit songs include: Everything, Walk Away, Call Me and The Night Love Made A Fool Out Of Me.
With Everything's success, William released his follow up album: "What About Me". The album was co produced by Kevin Kruger and featured some of South Africa's best Session musicians. William paid tribute to his idol "Koos Kombuis" by recording his hit song "Lisa se Klavier". One of the singles "When The Shadows Come was picked up by 5fm. What about me contains twelve original tracks and two covers.
With the "Afrikaans" market rising in South Africa, William decided to give his 3'rd studio album an Afrikaans title. The album was co produced by Robin Walsh who inspired William to purchace his own production studio. The Afrikaans song "Dixie" reached the top ten on OFM and was later covered by other musicians on their own albums. The album contains 14 original tracks including the hits Dansman and Angles.
The "Collections" album was an independent "Best Of.." release after BMG Africa was purchased by SONY Records. Although William had no say in the track order, the SONY producers listened to the albums and with fresh outlook compiled a "Best Of" compilation CD of William Blackrose hits. The album contained nine original tracks and one cover . Songs on this album include: Everything, Dansman & Angles.
In late 2013 William started work on an independent album. William approached different studios and systematically recorded the new album by using session artists like Andries Botha, Denny Lalouette and Bruce Wallace.
