All good things take time… this rings true for these two established Garden Route musicians.

Both songwriters and live performers, Tanja Storm and Heather Waters have been finely crafting their music careers over the last decade: writing, composing, producing and touring, while their songs have been reaching TV, radio and audiences both here and abroad.

After meeting at a show in which both artists were invited as guest singers, they discussed touring together and the idea for the Girls Rockin’ The Road 2019 tour was born.

For Heather Waters it has been an exciting touring career, road-tripping South Africa, Mozambique, Australia, Majorca, Ireland, UK and parts of Europe sharing her positive message through music!

Alone or with a band, Waters’ expressive guitar rhythms, honest lyrics, and passionate energy draw you into her performances! Waters has released three albums, and a variety of EP’s and Singles over the years. A few highlights of her career was to be featured at the FIFA World Cup Football celebrations in 2010, two of her songs have been played on TV’s Billabong Get Out There Series and many other platforms over the years. In 2016 Waters was proudly sponsored by Volkswagen SA in her ‘Pick Daisies Tour’ and more recently, this year, Waters was one of just two hundred, selected from thousands, to join a music industry mentor-ship and touring program with a company based in USA. They closely nurture artists at an industry level but also realize the power of positive music in Community Work and mobilize musicians worldwide, something close to Heather’s heart. For more than a decade many of Waters’ tours have been focused on raising awareness and funds for developmental Community and Environmental projects.

In fact, Waters embarked on the first Girls Rocking The Road tour in 2009, touring as three female-led bands from Cape Town up the East Coast with the intention of raising awareness and funds for local Community and Environmental Projects that they visited along the way. It featured Heather Waters, Mari Bosman and Natali Shaked (UK).

Prolific, enthusiastic, creative and gifted, Tanja Storm is a multi-talented and skilled vocalist, instrumentalist and music director. She released her debut album in 2009, with her first music video being broadcast on KykNet.

Recently returning to studio after years of successful projects with cover bands and theatre work, this diverse artist released new singles that have hit number 1 on our local SA music charts. She released more music videos for broadcasting on KykNet and finally released her much anticipated second full album ‘Ek is oppad’ in August 2019. Because of her love of theatre, this diverse artist has written her own very successful tribute productions, including the renowned Rockolution: The Evolution of Rock ‘n Roll, The Eva Cassidy Story, and Women Who Rock.

Heather Waters and Tanja Storm now join forces to share their music and a positive message, starting with the Eastern Cape. Waters and Storm both residing on the Garden Route, share strong feelings about the propaganda and negative media weighing the South African spirit down.

We plan to film our tour and show the world all the good stuff about our country! We want to spread the awareness that, here in our communities, we all actually get along very well and there are many great men and women doing amazing things to improve the lives of the people in their communities. There is too much unseen beauty, of both people and places, for us not to share it!”

The duo undertakes to share their journey on Facebook and YouTube and invite all locals that meet them along the way to join in and share their love for their country!

Be on the lookout for Girls Rocking The Road heading along the East Coast this December 2019.
