ERWIN

Born in South Africa, lead member Erwin Keiles became a very successful session & touring guitarist while still a teenager, working with many of the most successful local artists. 

He moved to the UK to further his career and has both recorded and toured the world as guitarist and Music Director with icons of pop, soul and jazz. Early on he worked with UK household names, Cilla Black, Petula Clark, and later Jamiroquai, ABC, Take That, Boyzone, Kim Wilde before becoming a ‘go to’ musician for visiting US artists including Ben E. King, Billy Paul, Candi Staton, Alexander O’Neal, Donna Summer, Shalamar, The Emotions, Sister Sledge and Gloria Gaynor. 

Erwin plays an unusual instrument, an electric nylon string classical guitar developed by an innovative French-Canadian company called Godin. The beautiful pure sound of this guitar inspired him to bring new energy to great compositions. His group FIRE comprises many of the world class musicians he has worked with, restyling arrangements of some great songs and penning some original pieces too.
