MA: Before we get started, can you please give us a short 101 on who Bacchus Nel  is as musician? When did music become a part of your life?

Started playing and writing quite late in life at the age of 22. I recorded my first record round about the age of 28. Difficult to say who I am as a musician as the music is constantly evolving.

MA: Who/What are your musical inspirations?
Ordinary people as I like telling stories.
MA: What are your thoughts on our local music scene at the moment and if there is anything you wish to see happen differently? 
I  don’t know much about the industry, I am totally independent, what works for one artist does not necessarily work for everyone. One has to find your own niche, especially if you are not doing “popular” music.
MA: Are there any local acts that you think need a special mention?
There is a lot of lekker stuff happening op die Wasgoedlyn. Beautiful raw recordings of some established acts as well as some new artists.

MA: You are playing at Park Acoustics this month… Are you excited for the gig? What can we expect from your performance?
Very much, after Marissa who was in the band for about the last 10 years moved to the Cape, it forced me to explore a new sound, so pretty excited for Park Acoustics. It will be the first gig with the slightly changed line-up but a whole new sound.
MA: Anything that you guys are currently working on that we would be interested in hearing about?
Busy rehearsing for a new album, also working on a very stripped down solo project.
MA: Where can we follow you on Social media?
