The rich resonance of his voice makes Michael Buble's seem rather thin... Comparisons with the great Tony Bennett are inevitable. Ike Moriz performing swing is that good!"(Full Circle Magazine,SA)


In the past five years international singer, producer, composer and actor Ike Moriz has been on an incredible journey delving deeply into the world’s vast songbook of Jazz, Latin & Swing standards: He recorded & published a total of eight albums of this genre, was voted one of the top five vocalists in South Africa, filmed several music videos, toured South Africa & Northern Europe playing over 350 concerts, and became one of the most sought after SA entertainers for both local& international events.Recently Ike also got married to Madri, sister towell-known SA stage and TV personality Nataniël. (www.nataniel.co.za).


In 2013 Ike Moriz-appears on the international Jazz & music scene with “Siren Terpsichore”,his 13th studio album to date, which has already been described as the “Crown jewel of original SA swing” (CD Baby).Composed, produced & recorded by Ike himself, it contains 14 beautifully crafted, brand-new songs in the Jazz/Swing/Latin genre - including the popular UK ‘Abbey Road Mix’ of his recent composition “Angie Blue” as well as two recordings in Spanish language, sung in his favorite Argentinean-Spanish accent.


Siren Terpsichore was recorded at Paris Studios in Cape Town with a band of top session musicians from all over the world (SA, Mozambique, Argentina, Germany, Scotland). The album is both upbeat and uplifting with Ike’s usual fresh, jovial, tongue-in-cheek Swing/Jazz sentiment, strong vocals, timeless melodies and powerful, archetypal lyrics straight from the heart.



In Greekmythology,Terpsichore"delight in dancing" was one of the nine Muses,ruling over dance and the dramatic chorus.She lends her name to the word "terpsichorean"which means "of or relating to dance". She is usually depicted sitting down,holding a lyre,accompanying the dancers' choirs with her music.
