Glen Hartmann is a local Cape Town musician with a passion for different styles of music. This indie folk/synth musician has performed alongside big South African acts such as Jack Parow, Isochronous and Ashtray Electric at many well-known venues in Cape Town. He has also performed live on many local radio stations such as 2 Oceans Vibe Radio and Assembly radio and his music has been played on 5fm, East Coast Radio and Kfm. At the beginning of 2012 Glen participated in the Paco Rabanne “Be a rockstar” competition, where he performed at UCT. His music video for The Sign received the most votes which gave him the title of “Crowd Favourite”. Later that year Glen made his way into the top 10 of the Barleycorn Music Club’s Songwriters competition. 2013 has been a great year for Glen so far – he ended off 2012 and began 2013 with a tour to Durban; he was featured on 5fm's Rocking the Republic and less than a month later his song “I don't breathe” was featured as a Treffer on 5fm which received a score of 90% 'hot'; he performed live on The Expresso Show on SABC 3 and just over a week later performed on Hectic Nine 9 on SABC 2. The rest of this year will focus mainly on tours outside of Cape Town with some of South Africa's finest musicians. The first stop is a music festival outside of Durban, called Splashy Fen.
