Biography

Albert Frost

Albert Frost is a respected feature of the South African music scene.

For the past two decades the energetic performances of SAMA award winning blues/rock guitarist/singer Albert Frost has captured audiences worldwide.

Dubbed the “South African Hendrix”, Frost deftly alternates between rhythm and lead, showcasing his extraordinary skills on the acoustic and electric guitars. His first love is the Blues, stemming from the influence of his long relationship with the Blues Broers, a well-known and respected group from Cape Town with whom he has performed since 1994 at the age of 17.

In 2000 Frost became one of the first Fender endorsees in South Africa and has been linked with the brand ever since.

He has recorded with Arno Carstens, Koos Kombuis, Chris Chameleon, Anton Goosen, David Kramer, Karen Zoid, Blues Broers and many others. He has performed with every major artist in South Africa, including international artists like Ali Farka Touré and Finley Quaye. He has toured with Simple Minds and Rem, and supported the Rolling Stones. Albert performed at some of the most legendary and exclusive international music festivals including Isle of Wight, Hard Rock Calling and Oppikoppi.

April 2016 saw the release of his much anticipated third solo album, The Wake Up, which, according to Frost, signals the “start of a new journey” for him. In a departure from Frost’s blues roots, The Wake Up explores various musical avenues and lyrical content to create something he says will surprise and excite his fans.

The album won in the coveted Best Rock Album category at the 2017 SAMA Awards.

After a very successful 2017 Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees, Frost was nominated for a Kanna award as well as a kykNET-Fiëstas 2018 for the Best Music Production for the two shows: with Loki Rothman (The Acoustic Guitar) and with Zolani Mahola (Rok en Rol.)
