Sean Koch is a Cape Town based indie-folk artist who brings a mixed bag of African andwestern influence alongside messages of home, a connection to nature, the ocean and thepeople around him; to his story telling, feel-good music.While rooted in his flowing-folk style, his music is diverse. 

From dance infused songs like ‘LiftYou Up’ the standout single from his collection (including the Double MZK & G DOM remix)to the dreamier songs like ‘Feel the Energy’ that carry deeper messages of connection to thenatural world and the people that surround us. There is something for everyone in Sean’s

catalogue.On the stage, Sean has supported acts such as Sticky Fingers (AUS), Milky Chance (DE),Xavier Rudd (AUS) Will & the People(UK), A-ha (Norway) and Mat McCugh/Beautiful Girls(AUS) and Jeremy Loops (ZA).
