New Brew Lunchtime Concerts: Zarni De Wet
The Red Room presents the New Brew Lunchtime Concert Series. Every Tuesday and Thursday, Berklee students, staff, or faculty help you either slow down or power up for the afternoon. Concerts are free, all-ages, and open to the public. Bring your lunch, snag a coffee, and grab a seat for our New Brew performances—they're good for the soul. This week's featured artist is Zarni De Wet.
De Wet has been showcased on several TV series for WSKG-TV, NewsChannel 34, and Winchester Community TV. She has appeared in several newspapers ranging from upstate New York all the way to Philly. She has also toured and opened for big names like the Mike Lombardo Trio and Nikolas Metaxas, with a list of venues ranging from the Bitter End in New York City to the smallest and most regularly visited bars in Nowhereville, Pennsylvania to Chicago's favorite coffee shops to private concerts in Cyprus and South Africa. Her album Friday Night Lights was released in January 2010 to much success. Two of the tracks have been competition winners.
The rest seems irrelevant, as De Wet's main focus is to touch her audience—she doesn't care if there are 300 people or three. In the next several months De Wet will be teaming up with witty and proactive producer Matt McArthur from Boston to work on an EP that will be released next year. She is also still finishing her double major in songwriting and music education at Berklee.
