From the tender age of 9 years old, Tye Platinum already had a massive passion for music as a vast form of art with many facets. This passion later developed into a passion for writing, composing and arranging music.
He grew up in Ravensmead in Cape Town and his craft was cultivated in church, as many other artists of his time. Tye then joined a local Capetonian band, Ambition, which went on to tour the U.S.A. in 2004.
Tye Platinum decided to further his already extensive knowledge of this craft by going to attain a formal musical education at Xulon (now known as Cape Music Institute) in 2006 while simultaneously co-founding the SAMA-nominated band Blackcurrant, where he played the role of lead singer and songwriter until 2011. In 2009, Tye wrote the Blackcurrant’s first hit radio single “Simplify” which continues to circulate on radio stations nationwide. Blackcurrant was one of the first independent Capetonian bands to sign an international distribution deal with P-Vine records in Japan.
Since then, Tye Platinum has had the privilege to grace some of South Africa’s most prestigious stages such as the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, alongside some of the world’s finest acts namely Jonathan Butler, Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Johnny Clegg among others.
Currently, Tye Platinum is a solo artist who forms part of many collectives such as Allegro 80 – a trio acapella group and is focusing on compiling his nuanced sound, which combines RnB soul, indie and soft rock music, into his debut album which he hopes to release in 2021.
