Cape Town - He opened for Bon Jovi during their 2013 Because We Can world tour in South Africa and regularly performs in the UK and US.

He has won Wawela Music Award for Best Male Artist & Composer and was nominated for Best Soundtrack in a Feature Film or Theatrical Documentary. He recently released his smash hit, Indestructible, off his brand new album Apollo, which is currently burning up the airwaves around the country.

They opened for Westlife during their 2011 tour in Namibia and for Air Supply during their 2014 tour in South Africa.

They have been winning South African Ghoema and Huisgenoot Tempo Music awards since 2011 and regularly perform at the biggest Afrikaans festivals and shows around the country. 

Their self-titled album achieved gold status during 2013 and they have just been nominated for another Huisgenoot Tempo award for their music video GOUD from their latest album, GOUD, which is due to reach gold status any day now.

South African award-winning and chart-topping singer/songwriter and pop/rock/dance artist, Daniel Baron and the popular award-winning Afrikaans pop group and singer/songwriters, ADAM (Hugo Ludik, Reynardt Hugo and Kyle Grant) have joined forces for this hit collaboration!

Their very first international single, Say What You Want, will be released to South African audiences during June 2015. It has already been released in Holland, Belgium and Luxembourg by the European record label, Red Bullet, in early May 2015 and will soon be released to the rest of Europe.


The single will play exclusively and for the first time on the 947 and KFM Kia Top 40 on 6 June 2015, where after the song will be released to radio stations nationally and will be followed by the release of the music video.

The song was written by Hugo Ludik and Daniel Baron for no particular project or reason – only for the sake of putting two creative heads together and seeing what comes from it. The result is: Say What You Want.

"The choice to do the song together as a collaboration didn't take much thought or time. Both Daniel and ourselves identified with every single part of the song - from the lyrics to the melody and production - and felt that our musical strengths combined would turn this song into a big hit, as well as a song we can be proud of. We are hoping that this song will get as much airplay worldwide as it deserves" says Hugo Ludik – founder of the group ADAM.

Daniel Baron says: "I've known Hugo Ludik for a couple of years now. Before the ADAM group formed, we used to perform together as session musicians in different bands. Very recently we caught up and decided to co-write a song. We sat down for 2 hours and came up with Say What You Want. It's the perfect collaboration song for both myself and ADAM because it carries elements of both our sounds, and it also crosses over to new genres. It's been incredible to work with ADAM. They are true professionals and true rock stars."

#SayWhatYouWant… but this single is guaranteed to be a big hit!

The single will be available on iTunes and other digital platforms form 5 June 2015.
