Global Music Awards Winner 2017. Pierre Opperman a Singer/Songwriter from Knysna,South Africa, has won the ”Best New Artist” award,on Pirate Radio of The

bands during high-school years. A shooting-accident during his military-service severely damaged his right hand/wrist and ended his plans of continuing
a career as a professional drummer! Being a natural musician, he progressed to guitar at the age of 15 and continued his passion for music, by performing
in various pubs, booze-cruises and beach-parties, over the years. Pierre’s song-writing skills were born during a difficult year, in 2000, whilst living
in a caravan on the South Coast of Natal, and continued during the latter years where he has been living in Knysna for the past twenty years.
