Tailor & Tramp was established in 2018 and consists of Werner Kruger, Fish Archer, Matthew Gerli and Reinhardt von Solms. The band’s name comes from Kruger’s own interpretation of Yin and Yang – the perfect balance between good and evil.
This project started after Werner and Fish met through mutual friends and started playing together for fun. “We then arranged our first show ourselves as ‘Uit die Bloute’, because that is how the band started. ‘Uit Die Bloute’ was mainly a cover band with a few originals. I then decided that I really wanted to write Country music and wanted to try something new and that’s how Tailor & Tramp originated,” shares Kruger.
The band developed and established its unique sound and vision and moved towards live performances; the most notable of which was performing with Jo Black, Snotkop, Franja Du Plessis, Jay, Pieter Koen and more. They were also scheduled to perform with Biggy and Early B at Sun Arena, but the show was cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
This foursome already has already created seven original tracks and would like to release their first album as soon as possible. They also plan to visit Nashville in the near future to introduce their music to the international market.
