“We met as two ambitious young students at the University of Stellenbosch. After a few cups of coffee we soon realised that we shared much more than our common interest in music. Today, after a brief stint in the corporate world, we are married and working as full-time musicians; pursuing our dream to inspire others through our craft.”
It’s hard to assign a genre to the music of the Bottomless Coffee Band. The style can be described as folk-pop. With foot stomping rhythms, hard hitting lyrics and hints of the dramatic, they are impressive to watch. “We like to refer to it as gourmet music… This term captures our vision as musicians: to produce music that is true to ourselves in the different stages of developing as musicians and creatives. To write lyrics and play songs that encourages good times, evokes emotion and sparks deeds of love, hope and change.” Lourens and Esté have become crowd favourites for their variety in song writing, melodic storytelling and electrifying performances, inspiring the nostalgia of the legends of yesteryear.
We have a great love for instruments; we are constantly on the look-out for interesting sounds to include in our oeuvre. Currently we play 12 instruments between the two of us, gracing the stage with an impressive display of music-making gadgets, and allowing the sound of a full band. Our instruments include the Farmer foot drums, acoustic and electric guitar, electric bass, U-Bass, accordion, ukulele, harmonica, glockenspiel and various percussion instruments. We also sing, whilst playing the above.
