THE AZTEC SAPPHIRE
MA: For those of us who have never heard of you, please tell us about yourselves in a few lines…
We are The Aztec Sapphire a four piece band from Cape Town. We make alternative/ambient music which we record and produce ourselves from home.
MA: Give us a bit of background on your name?
We came up with our name when we were much younger, we wanted something that sounded mystical and mysterious so we came up with The Aztec Sapphire. Now that we’re older it has too much sentimental value to change.
MA: What would you say are some of your biggest influences and inspirations as a musician?
We draw influence from all over the place. We’re big fans of classical and crooner music, among many other genres and artists.
MA: To date, what has been your best gig / achievement as a musician?
We’ve been fortunate enough to get a good response from listeners and the audience at live shows, we find this to be an achievement in its self.
MA: You have been selected as one of the Top 10 finalists in the Converse GET OUT THE GARAGE competition. Tell us why we should vote for you instead of the other 9 finalists?
You should vote for us if you like the music we make.

MA: Where can people follow you guys?
MA: Finally, if you could work in studio with any artist in the world, who would that be?
If we could work with anyone in studio it would have to be Brian Eno.
