About Ralston Van Der Schyff

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. It was way back, our High School held a talent show. I appeared on stage, donning black sunglasses with a fellow pupil's arm around mine guiding me to take my seat at the piano. Then I ripped into my impression of Ray Charles's "Georgia On My Mind." What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? David Benoit, American Landscape David Benoit, Professional Dreamer Vladimir Ashkenazy, The Best of Vladimir Ashkenazy I love the combination of jazz and orchestra. Each track tells a story, which can be clearly imagined through the music. Vladimir's interpretation of classical piano is really inspiring and detailed. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Tempest” Two things, this track showcases my compositional and performance abilities, and secondly I love the aspects of power and abstract beauty that music can demonstrate. What’s one of the most memorable moments in your career so far? I loved those road-trips with musicians who were also great friends! We toured South Africa and Namibia doing cabaret shows at festivals such as KKNK and Windhoek festival, which were musically electrifying and full of fun. Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? It started as a dream, and then constant day-dreams, to perform at the world's most prestigious concert halls performing my own compositions.
