We are a husband and wife duo: U-One and Christelle Theron.
At the age of 15, our journey started together.
Before we started dating, I was very uninformed about good music and listened to the old school boy-bands at the time (Haha) U-One gave me a mixed tape and my world changed.
I had guitar lessons and even had a grade in playing it, but it was more like homework than anything else.
U-One is multi-talented and can listen to a song, pick up the guitar and play it without missing a beat.
Music brought us together. He started a few bands and I was the ultimate groupie :) Never missing a band practice or a gig.
In 2008 we went through a short-lived hard-time. We stayed in Pretoria and knew that something had to give.
U-One traveled to Jordan for a few months and I carried on with life in Pretoria.
We had to find ourselves as individuals first in order to find each other again. I will never forget the moment when I was struggling to fall asleep and lying awake at 04:00 in a camping site, wondering where to from here…I knew that he was the only person for me.
We were in different continents, worlds apart.
In that moment I got a sms (days before WhatsApp) from U-One: You are the only one for me. I'm coming home.
This is my life, this is my love.
We moved back to Cape Town in 2009 and U-One started working at Oude Libertas amphitheatre, various festivals and with many well-known artists.
Music is part of our fibre and always have been.
Today, 21 years later, we are a dynamic team that understand the power of love, celebrations, good times and the dream of your wedding day!
Christelle takes care of the brand, bookings + quotes and U-One takes care of you on the day.
Southern Sound was created in 2011.
We understand the importance of music and that precision is vital for the success of your special moments.
With more than 8 years’ experience and 400 + events and weddings, you can rest assured that your day will be in good hands.
It’s more than music when love wins!
We bring you everything with love,
Christelle & U-One
