About our Engineer


With over 15 years experience as a multi instrumentalist, live performer  and composer, Kevin Leicher, is no stranger to SA’s live music scene.  Beginning in 1995 with his first session on Jack Hammer’s “Welcome to Azania” Kevin has appeared on records ranging from acoustic folk to hard metal and everything in-between. Plum, Henry Ate, Odball , Bird Tribe, Diesel Whores and Even Flow are just some of the bands Kevin has been part of. Currently, when he’s not playing lead guitar for Arno Carstens, composing with Josie Fields or touring with Louise Carver or Chris Chameleon, Kevin can be found creating, mixing and mastering all kinds of sounds at Darkstar Productions. As Owner and Director of Darkstar, Kevin’s wealth of experience in the industry, is greatly sought after. He offers a “hands-on” effect that’s not often found, but much needed in every recording studio environment.

Ever ‘in tune’ with the latest trends of SA’s dynamic sound and music industry, Kevin also spends his time lecturing and consulting at City Varsity, which is next door to his studio.
