One Way Ticket was produced Brian O’Shean (best know for production work with Seether, Arno Carstens & Sugardrive) and up and coming production talent Paul Mc Iver.

Here is some ‘tit-bits’ of Charlie Dicks, Country and Gospel singer

The professional singing career of Charlie Dicks started in 1982 with the recording of a former known seven single. A long player soon followed, as did an invitation to share the stage with several well known South African artists at the Windhoek show. Hard work followed and slowly but surely the music industry took note of this new artist whose popularity with audiences increased.

In 1986 she was heard on the country hit parade for the first time with her hit song “Medals for mothers”. Several other hits like “Green to Blue”, “Walking piece of heaven” and “It’s a lovely lovely world” followed which firmly placed her foot in the door of the South African music industry.

Coenie de Villiers is a very famous singer, here is a ‘short’ Bio of him

Coenraad Grabe (Coenie) de Villiers was born in Bloemfontein on October 11, 1956.
Coenie de Villiers has changed the landscape of South African music and in particular Afrikaans music over the past 40 years.

His first recording (an own composition for EMI and released in 1978/9) won a SARIE Award and the originality of the song foreshadowed what has become one of the most radical and important creative careers in South African music.

His career has subsequently spanned nearly four decades and nearly 20 albums of his own material, garnered three SAMA awards and numerous other accolades, including the medal of honour by the South African Council of Arts and Sciences. His creative work and recordings have been banned by the previous regime, but he has consistently broken down barriers in the face of adversity and shunned commercial credit in the process.
