Socialite Pic of the Week: Arno Carstens

In this week’s Pic of the Week on The Socialite we feature award-winning singer-songwriter and guitarist Arno Carstens. Check it out…

During his career as the lead singer of rock band The Springbok Nude Girls, and subsequently as a solo artist, Arno has released 7 studio albums and had 18 top ten singles. He has won 5 South African Music Awards and shared the stage with legends of the music world. He recently celebrated the release of ‘Wonderful Wild’ Deluxe Edition 2 CD/DVD set after a year of travel and performances across across South Africa, the UK and Europe.

As an artist, Arno is a prolific songwriter. He has a constant need to push his boundaries creatively and has never been shy to try new sounds and stretch his song writing and vocal capabilities.  During the recording process of Wonderful Wild, Arno wrote and recorded over 60 new songs. The material ranged from high-energy rock anthems to melancholy ballads and showcased his ability as a multi-dimensional songwriter. The body of work that was selected as the album Wonderful Wild meant that many of these incredible tracks remained unreleased, until now.

Arno Carstens notes; “This deluxe version of Wonderful Wild is the musical and visual sum of the commercial album released earlier this year, with B-sides, videos and out takes that took place while recording the album. It will bring you closer to understanding the making of Wonderful Wild and the creative journey that I took in getting there.”
