Johannesburg, listen up!

The White Collar Club is coming to YOU.

Eight men with diverse stories and one common core idea:
that is the White Collar Club. A
collective of men from various parts of the world, the White Collar Club is a vocal collaboration
like no other. Some from music schools; some from internationally
acclaimed vocal ensembles; some from funk and soul bands; others from rock
bands; performing to thousands of fans across hundreds of stages and supporting
top artists on tour and each member of the White Collar Club adds his own ideas to form one unique sound.

Soulful, artistic and charming, each of the eight members is the epitome of the
modern gentleman. Constantly inspired by some of the greatest musical minds in
history, they shared a vision of using their training, exceptional talent and
years of performance experience to create a new sound and an album that's as
emotionally engaging as it is groundbreaking.

Collaboratively written within the group, each song on the group's debut album
“After Hours” brings together each of the member's wildly different
backgrounds for an honest, raw, bold and richly textured experience.

Jeremy du Plessis and Paul Morissey wrote most of the songs.
Jeremy comments: “When myself and Paul were writing the album we were both
listening to a lot of old Soul artists like Donny Hathaway and Lauryn Hill (as
well as some more recent faces like Sam Sparrow and Frank Ocean).
A lot of the albums from these artists back then had quite a darkness to them
which definitely came through in writing of After Hours, it can put so much
feeling into a song. When I sit down to write a song I have to pull from things I know and it has to be honest and often stated as simple as possible so
people don't have to guess at the story I am trying to tell. Story-telling is
the most important part of song writing for me, which really comes through in a
song like 'Evil', where I try to paint characters and situations for people to
dig into. It's very important to me that the stories speak to experiences
common to as many people as possible. Everyone knows about being wronged or
cheated. As far as a theme or a concept goes, myself and
Paul shared a lot of stories about growing up, loving people, being hurt and
questioning all of it, a lot of the time. We weren't grabbing at abstract
concepts, just honest articulations.”

Paul Morissey adds:
“When I started writing the music for the White Collar Club "After
Hours" album, I decided to draw inspiration from my own experiences. I
wanted to write about my emotions, about my thoughts, and let them inspire the
music. In order for me to do this honestly, I had to put myself back into these
situations in my imagination and write from that perspective. Although it was
hard at times to revisit the more painful memories, the result is a collection
of songs that speaks from and to the heart.”

WCC has performed at various festivals,
corporate functions and other prominent events including Heart FM Woman’s
Day Lunch, Ard Matthews & Friends Benefit Concert, Nedbank Million Dollar
Golf Challenge, Imogen Heap World Tour SA Leg,Rocking the Daisies Music
Festival, Synergy Live Music Festival, Up the Creek Music Festival, MTN Concert
in the Park, National Woman’s Awards, Woolworths Annual Charity Dinner,
J&B Met, Queens Plate, 5fm Woman’s Awards and many more. 

The White Collar Club
goes beyond musical moments to create an emotional journey. A full
experience that's as real on stage as it is on the album.
