About Fruit Vendor

Welcome to the Fruit Jam - where musical fruit is planted, grown and packaged for a supportive tribe of people who love stories told through song. If you join us, you'll not only be helping us create new fruit, but you'll also:

- get access to our monthly Fruit Jam-only live stream
- receive all the songs in our catalog, and direct-download a new one every month (way before anyone else in the world hears it)
- journey with us as we meticulously put together masterfully written songs (while documenting the process)
- get an inside scoop on what it's like to be modern-day artists trying to survive in a digital world: the good, the bad and all the ugly.
- get to know us as we get to know you
- learn how to share your own fruit

Who Are We?
Fruit Vendor is a colourful, afro-funk-pop, songwriting project from Cape Town, South Africa. It's our mission to write, record and produce songs that tell authentic stories that are distinct, compelling and vibrant, while all the while mixing those tales with our unique South African groove and sensibility. Songs are our musical fruit and we want to share this fruit as far and as wide as possible. 

"Original, quirky, funny and super skilled..." - Weekend Special

Our goal: release one original, professionally produced song every month. 

We've always taken a DIY approach to how we create our art - from recording out of Josh's grandmother's flat between two garden sofas and a deep freezer, to editing together our own music videos remotely during the COVID-19 quarantine - we use what we have at our disposal: our hands, our passion and a will to see great art made. But we can't do it all on our own. Your partnership will help us achieve the following:

Minimum Milestone: get one new song mastered professionally every month indefinitely - because we believe artists should have a body of work and lack of resources shouldn't stand in our way.

Milestone 2: pay each band mate or guest artist a session fee for their contribution to each song. 

Milestone 3: produce professional grade videos to go with every song. 

Milestone 4: create an ongoing digital marketing budget, so that we can share this fruit globally! 

Help us share our fruit by sharing yours!

"Fruit Vendor brought something totally new and fresh to the table...unlike anything else we have heard before." - Real Wired Music, Channel 24

"Remarkable Storytellers..." - BizCommunity

"A melting pot of culturally charged lyrics...putting you either into fits of laughter or bopping to energetic beats." - What's On in Cape Town


Goals
$204.78 of $450 per month
When we reach $450 per month, we will be able to properly support each band mate/guest artist for their contribution to each month's new song. Something like this is unheard of in South Africa and we're excited to create this musical history with you.
