Reigndear are a 3 piece experimental psychedelic folk band officially founded in Taiwan, January 2007, by South African brothers Kent Dylan & Wesley Jay as well as lifelong friend and multi-instrumentalist/producer Johnny Atterbury. Reigndear are a band who believe in the profound effects of music and they create a blend of music that is best described as “a nostalgic look at the present through the past & future” Starting January 2009 Reigndear began touring as a live duet in and around the greater Johannesburg area playing acclaimed venues such as The Bohemian, Tanz Cafe & Voodoo Lounge. In December 2009 Reigndear left Johannesburg for the sunny shores of Cape Town for four months, where they have been playing gigs at venues such as Zula, The Purple Turtle, Boo Radley’s & The Royal Albert Hall. The band also released their first EP that same year and continued to travel to Taiwan and the United States to work on and promote their music.
