Local duo Cherry Pill have been selected amongst 10 finalists from worldwide submissions in the prestigious International Acoustic Music Awards (also known as IAMA) with their song entry titled ‘The Wheel Keeps Turning’ in the Best Group/Duo Category.
The awards, now in their 17th year promotes excellence in acoustic music performance and artistry. With entries submissions spanning the globe, judging is based on excellence in music performance, songwriting, composition, song choice, music production and originality/artistry.
Cherry Pill were thrilled to hear on Friday 13 February 2021 that they had been selected as finalists in the competition.
‘We’ve long been supporters of acoustic music, performing at various acoustic music clubs, festivals and open mic nights in South Africa “ say Rory and Kristel from Cherry Pill. “ ‘We have so much respect for the IAMA’s and follow the results from year to year, so it was with great surprise and excitement that we learnt we had been selected as finalists.
Cherry Pill have previously been nominated for an AfriMusic Award (the largest song competition in Africa) for the same song earlier in 2020.
A song about the ever-changing seasons of life, The Wheel Keeps Turning draws on imagery from the world around to represent how life and times can change. The song was selected to compete for a spot in the largest song competition in Africa-the AfriMusic Song Contest earlier this year.
The song has a catchy opening guitar/violin riff complemented by Rory’s smokey voice and tight vocal harmonies the duo has become known for.
‘Seasons come, seasons go, but there’s one thing that I know; it’s that the wheel comes around again’
