ASANDA Bam fans will be thrilled to know that the 29- year-old Motherwell singer is almost ready to release her second album.
She has graced the country's music scene for three years with her soulful, heart-warming voice.
The album is being recorded in Cape Town and will be on sale before June.
"This week I will be working on pre-production," Bam said.
The album will be "funky" with a heavy rock undertone.
"My second album will be different from the first one as I have found myself," Bam said yesterday.
Bam was nominated for a Metro FM Music award in 2010 for her first album, Fragile. It was released in 2009.
She says that she has grown as an artist in the past three years and is now much more comfortable with her singing and performances.
"I did not see the need to rush another record because I needed to promote the first one.
"I wanted people to enjoy it and get to know Asanda.
"Unfortunately, it did not do well in sales."
Bam says her second album has a story to tell.
"My fans will enjoy it as I have worked with big names in the music industry, although I can't say who they are right now."
Bam is also planning to relocate to Cape Town to pursue her career.
"I realised that I am a small-town girl and Jozi is no longer working for me."
Bam started out in the industry when she was 18.
She joined one of South Africa's more popular gospel groups, Joyous Celebration.
During that time she featured on popular tracks like Lapha Engiholela and Isiphephelo.
She has also shared the stage with international stars like Angelique Kidjo, Jamelia and Corinne Bailey Rae.
She has worked with Thandiswa Mazwai, Gloria Bosman, Tsepo Tsola, Swazi Dlamini, Oskido and Mandla Spikiri, of the Kalawa stable.
