Francois van Coke – nou met Liefde, by die Dam

“Ek en Karen het besef dit is ‘n goeie song toe ons dit geskyf het,” vertel Francois van Coke oor die virale internetsukses van Toe Vind Ek Jou – die liefdesballade wat hy saam met Karen Zoid geskryf en opgeneem het.

“Voor die album [Francois van Coke, sy selfgetitelde solodebuut] uit was het ek dit natuurlik vir vriende gespeel, en selfs my metalhead chommies het hoendervleis gekry as hul dit hoor. Maar ek het in my wildste drome nie die reaksie verwag wat ons gekry het nie.”

Francois van Coke – “Playing it Forward”

Francois van Coke released his cover of Eagles of Death Metal’s I Love You All The Time – in a musical response to the terrible terrorist attack at a French concert last year. The attack took place at the Bataclan theater in Paris on 13 November 2015 where Eagles of Death Metal was performing, and left the band rattled, but determined to not be deterred.

Afterwards, the band issued a challenge to other musicians to cover their song I Love You All The Time – and Francois van Coke accepted.
