GoodLuck is South Africa’s most exciting live electronic band, challenging audiences from around the world to take interest in a modern sound that is being hailed as truly African with the ability to cross over to an international electronic pop audience.
Their music is an irresistible blend of electronica, pop and subtle influences of jazz. GoodLuck creates a sound that is thoroughly their own and they have been taking this sound to audiences across Europe, Africa and the UK over the past 3 years.
The trio of muso’s whose collective expertise molds their unique sound, features Juliet Harding on vocals – a songstress who has written hits both locally and internationally. She effortlessly takes listeners on nostalgic adventures with her lyrics and enchanting voice.
Matthew O’Connell is on saxophone and keys. He is new to the group but seemingly cut from the same cloth – his performances on stage are electrifying. They’re kept together by the wizardry of GoodLuck’s producer and founder Ben Peters, whose repertoire includes 7 number one hits and an uncanny ability to turn disparate ideas into foot- thumping dance floor fillers and has radios begging for more.
Their high-octane performances have earned them a credible place amongst other artists in the live-electronic genre. GoodLuck have shared stages with Groove Armada, Bassment Jaxx, The Petshop Boys, Bakermat, Goldfish and Paul Oakenfold to name a few. In September 2015 GoodLuck was selected to open for Pharrell Williams, as a part of his world tour, to rave reviews. GoodLuck has performed at sold-out concerts in Amsterdam, Berlin and London, and most recently sold out all 5 concerts at their first summer residency Get Lucky Summer
In 2013 GoodLuck threw caution to the wind and headed into the Namibian desert to record their second album – CREATURES OF THE NIGHT. A feat so ambitious that they were asked to present a master class at the acclaimed Amsterdam Dance Event discussing how they adapted unique and abstract environmental sounds into a commercially successful album.
