Ternielle Nelson, a Durban-raised, Joburg-living singer and songwriter whose debut UNEARTHED is so startlingly good, its hard to believe that she’s not been a fixture on the music scene for a significant period of time. In fact, Nelson’s considerable talent was spotted early on by one of South Africa’s most astute music minds, Selaelo Selota, who first noticed the now 22-year-old during a year-end concert at the Central Johannesburg College and later urged her to enter the studio to record her debut. I think that the fact that I play guitar and write my own songs impressed Selaelo, Nelson confides. But Miss Nelson has since staged a number of collaborations with Culoe De Song, Dj Euphonik and is currently gigging with a live band. Her sound has evolved to include traditional, electro dance, Soul and Hip Hop elements to produce what can only be determined as the future of South African Music.
