Steve Dyer

Steve Dyer is one of Southern Africa’s most accomplished producers, composers and performers. After receiving a degree in classical music performance at the University of Natal, Dyer left South Africa for Botswana in 1982 and lived in Zimbabwe and the UK, before returning to his home country in 1992 as the apartheid system was coming to an end. Over the years, Dyer has worked with Zimbabwean stars Oliver Mtukudzi and Letta Mbulu, as well as South African artists Hugh Masekela, the Soweto String Quartet and many others. Dyer is an accomplished composer and producer for film, television and stage as well, having scored songs for the BBC and other television networks, numerous films, advertisements and theatrical productions. As a solo artist, he has released three critically-acclaimed albums that feature his compelling blend of jazz with strong African flavors.
