Prime Circle enter 2009 as the leading rock band in South Africa, buoyed by several explosive live performances, a gold-selling album, significant radio play and, waiting in the wings, a bold assault on the international market.
That Ross Learmonth, Dale Schnettler, Dirk Bisschoff, Neil Breytenbach and Marco Gomes have dominated the rock scene in South Africa is hardly surprising. After all, prior to 2008, the five-piece had supported the release of their first two albums with a commitment to hard work and through a workmanlike approach to gigging and a brace of radio hits, rapidly built up a loyal fan base.
Still, with the release of third album, ‘All or Nothing’ and a new deal with EMI Music South Africa in place, Prime Circle have managed a most difficult feat over the past year: that is to elevate their standing in the South African music industry even further, at a time when tough economic conditions have issued artists with increasing challenges.
Perhaps the most easily recognizable reason for this is the power of a Prime Circle live performance.
