Albert was born and bred in Pretoria. He was a finalist in the RSGroentjie-category of the 2005 GMT-awards (previously referred to as the Geraas Musiek Toekennings). Albert has previously been described by the media as the most exciting new artist on the local music scene.
At the very young age of only 20 years his debut album “Dagboek van ‘n Dromer” displays his unique and very personal style. This strong melodic rock album boasts 12 original works, including 8 Afrikaans and 6 English songs. The first two songs on the album, Lyf and Within Walls, were play listed by a number of radio stations, many of them on high rotation.
Albert does not regard himself solely as an Afrikaans musician. He emphasizes the fact that he is more concerned with the music as such, and wants to feel free to express himself in any language of his choice.
