Gol Hockman // Folktronica

“This little gem of a supreme artist” – Silvio Pizzica, Ondarock.

Gil Hockman is a musician from Johannesburg, South Africa. Gil was a late bloomer and only picked up a guitar with intent when already in his thirties. Since then he has been making up for lost time. Performing live with an electric guitar, synthesizer and loop station, Gil has played hundreds of shows across Europe and southern Africa. His sound has been described as “a new kind of futuristic folk mixed with pop mixed with fragments of electronica and rendered incandescent by echoes of the blues” and each of his successive releases have been met with critical praise.

In November 2017 Gil released Becoming and with it he continues to mould his own voice. Some quotes from early reviews:

“The songs are mostly in minor colors, but this is the sadness called sweet, they listen with pleasure and you regret when they end.” – Jazzquad

“A disarmed mix of tradition and the future. With his futuristic folk, including folktronics and indietronics, he brings his songs to the audience in a golden way.” – De Subjectivisten
