Bill Knight, Poet, South African Singer-Songwriter, Storyteller, Weaver of Tall Tales and Short Truths, layers his authentic contemporary Cape-Folk music with poetic lyrics of depth
He is a Purveyor of Dreams, a “Smous of Songs”.
His “Kaapse Mengsel” Style, written in a characteristic “Bredie” of English and the Afrikaans Vernacular of the Western Cape, provides a personal but universal insight into the not-so-ordinary lives of everyday people, drawing strongly on Myth, Mystery, Legend and Folk- Lore.
He subscribes strongly to the Ethics and Traditions of the Troubadours- Minstrels and Social
Commentators; ranging from the Myths and Legends in the Fireside Tales of Early Man, to
the Welsh Bardic Tales, Scandinavian Sagas, and the Political Activists of the Middle Ages.
Bill calls himself a “KhakieBoer”- half Brit, half Boer- with all the Tensions and Paradoxes that
such a blend suggests, but his Fireside Ballads and Torch-songs are more universal than any
divisions that might be expected.
Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Patti Smith.
Mahlathini & Mahotella Queens, Amaswazi Emvelo, Marks Mankwane, David Kramer, Jonny
Clegg, Tony Bird, Bright Blue.
Although most of his Work has been performed Solo, Bill has, over the years worked in a

2016: Scarecrows in a Field, with Chris Davidson.
2018: Cape Smoke, with Richard Tait, Jono Tait, Matt Catto, Jeremy Stephenson,

Read Bill’s “Rolling Stone” Magazine’s interview with Alice Inggs:
It is one thing to be clever and oblique and another thing entirely to create such emotionally
honest visceral songs that become easily anthemic to the everyman and never sound
formulaic or contrived. He is a true storyteller. He has a unique, distinct sound that is a great
canvas on which to paint his words. That he is not yet rich and famous is unfathomable.
