Farryl Purkiss

Folk Rock Musician - Cape Town
Farryl Purkiss


He was fifteen years old when Purkiss first picked up the guitar and began writing songs shortly after his sixteenth birthday. Cape Town's Farryl Purkiss is a South African singer-songwriter. Releasing a self-financed EP in 2004 and was signed to 2Feet Music shortly afterwards. His debut album was released in 2007 to high acclaim and has since spent most of his time touring the world with over 130 gigs in 2007.

People always ask Farryl, “What do you write about?”, or “What influences your song writing?”. When it came to writing the songs for his new album, one thing he found with “Home” is that the message for him was pretty clear. The subject matter generally deals with 3 things…his home, his wife, and his youth. By no means did he plan to write about those subjects, but they presented themselves in each piece that he wrote in one form or another.

Purkiss has toured Australia three times, Europe, USA and of course, South Africa. He’s had radio success in all of the above territories including Japan and a #1 in France.. His songs have been used in campaigns by Nissan (Greece), Audi (UK), MTN (South Africa) as well as twice on the American TV show “Private Practice”. In 2007 he was voted the most popular musician by Heat Magazine (South Africa) and has been featured by every major newspaper, magazine, TV show and radio station in South Africa.
