Lonehill Estate is one of the top live performing bands in South Africa. With theirmischievous rock sound poking fun at current affairs and the music industry, their shows are riddled with offensive anecdotes and eye-twitchingly good music.
The band burst onto radio in 2005 with hit singles "Girl on a Roof" and "Skyward" charting on high rotation. In 2007 the band won "Best South African band" and represented South Africa in London at the Global Battle of the Bands. 2007's December issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine named Lonehill Estate as one of the Bands to look out for.
In 2008 Lonehill Estate released their second studio album "Hong Kong Dollar" which featured the hit "Memories." Then went on to perform alongside Muse, Korn, Good Charlotte and 30 Seconds to Mars at the 2008 MyCokeFest .
In 2009 Lonehill Estate's ballad "Forty" was used in the comedy "Finding Lenny" starring Barry Hilton. Lonehill has received much criticism for their music being too eclectic in the past so from mid-2009 to mid-2010 the band focused on funnelling their influences into their new sound, represented by "Gangstar" and "Techno Band" which both took #1 on 5fm's local Pop chart. Gangstar achieved top 10 status on 5fm's top 40 and it's video achieved high rotation on MK89.
Their follow up single, Technoband, reached #5 on the 5fm Top Forty chart and is, to date, one of the band’s most successful releases.
Single three, The Green Pocket, also achieved chart success nationally and is, lyrically, social commentary on mankind versus nature. Single four, DAANS! is epitomises the band’s blend of playful rock and electronica and got to number 1 on the 5fm charts in November 2011.
