Conrad Lottering

Conrad ‘Friskie Two-Times’ Lottering was born in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Honestly, at a young age I never thought I’d become a musician… I always wanted to be a game ranger or vet because of my great love of animals but that all changed when i bought my first Metallica cd… It all started when I was 15/16 years old.

We always had an acoustic guitar collecting dust that was passed down to my dad and it was never used. I originally wanted to be a drummer (cause chicks dig drummers!) but soon found my love for melodies and song writing and so I decided to play guitar.

I’ve been playing guitar for 7 years now and I’m still learning. My aim as a musician is to be able to play all styles of music… I like the emotional qualities that music possess, like expression of one self and “finding your own sound”. My influences range from all styles of music like, John Mayer, Alexi Laiho, Guthrie Goven, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Floors and Mauritz Lotz. The most influential being fast paced guitar riffs as found in Metal, but rock music has helped me find my softer, tasteful side.

I’m a honours degree student at C.O.P.A (Campus Of Performing Arts) 2013. I hope to become a well known musician and hopefully tour the world… :)
