On this episode Brian is joined by Peter Toussaint from Fourth Son South.

Fourth Son South is an Alternative Indie Pop Rock Band from South Africa formed by Dutch-born guitar maestro Peter Toussaint. After his debut solo release ‘One Day’ (2018), Peter enlisted bass player Franco Jamneck and drummer Carel Viljoen and toured as a trio under the name ‘Peter T Band’. At the end of 2019, the band recorded their debut EP ‘Another Mile’ under the name ‘Fourth Son South’ that was released in April 2020 … just as the world turned to lockdown with Covid-19. During lockdown, Peter wrote and recorded songs that formed the basis of their first full length album ‘The Sounds Around Your Head’. Guitarist Dale McHardy was subsequently recruited to perfect the live sound and the quartet proceeded to release another single ‘Hold On’ in July 2021.

In February 2022 Franco Jamneck left the band, and Peter started wanting a stronger focus on multi-harmonies. Bernhard Viljoen, a bass player with a phenomenal ability for vocal harmonies was recruited, and the band released their EP ‘Machine’. Based on the success of the single and music video for ‘Tomorrow’s Better’ featuring Melissa Osborne on vocals, Peter recruited female singer Meel Vignetting, who played with the band for a short time, before Sarah Jade Gardiner joined full time. Sarah is a young, experienced singer and music teacher from Johannesburg who won the Performing Arts Competition South Africa (PACISA). With her amazing vocal capabilities and warm personality, she completes the lineup of Fourth Son South.

To date Fourth Son South enjoyed success with their singles ‘Secret Place’ (Another Mile), ‘They Run, We Hide’, ‘Positive’, ‘Reflections’ (The Sounds Around Your Head), Hold On’, ‘Tomorrow’s Better’ (Machine), and 'The Cold' which all received considerable global airplay, especially in the US and UK. The band was interviewed on multiple radio stations (including Jacaranda & MIX FM) in South Africa and around the world. Their previous single 'The Cold' reached #1 on the 5fm Indie Chart. To date Fourth Son South played notable show and festivals like Woodcrock, STRAB, Bos Boogie and represented South Africa at the international La Ley del Rock Online Festival held in Argentina and Italy.
