Playlist Creator & Web Marketer. The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He served in the military for five years, then spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He was the Content Editor for Rhythm Online, South Africa's first online music store, from 2006 to 2012. He ran Mabu Vinyl, the iconic music store seen in the Oscar-winning "Searching For Sugar Man" film from 2013 to 2019. His voice could be heard on the streaming radio station All Jazz Radio where he hosted the Vagabond Show from 2012 to 2019. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including www.rock.co.za which he founded in 1999.

  1. HI Brian Currin, song number 26?? Is this the D-Fenders, the very D-fenders? MY mum sang with this band, don’t know for how long, but I have a pic of her sitting on the drums, with the band in the background! I am so hoping that this is the very band my mum use to sing in as I have never heard her sing and would so love to. My mom is now passed, God rest her soul, may she rest in peace. I am hoping you could perhaps shed some light on this for me.

    Regards
    Fernando

  2. Ronnie Joyce released a song “Lost in Love ” with a group.I forget the groups name nor can I get hold of the song or lyrics. Can anyone assist?
