Theuns Jordaan is a very well-known South African artist, born on a farm close to Venterstad in the Eastern Cape on 10 January 1971. He matriculated from Hoër Volkskool in Graaff-Reinet, after which he completed his military training in the South African Defence Force. Following this he enrolled at the University of Stellenbosch where he obtained a B Econ degree. It was during his time at university that he first began singing, and his first public appearance was at The Terrace on 21 October 1992. In 1998 he moved to Pretoria and subsequently released his first album, Vreemde Stad, in 2000 at the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees (KKNK) in Oudtshoorn. It went on to sell more than 201,000 units. His second album, Tjailatyd, was released at Aardklop in Potchefstroom in 2002. This album has sold more than 220 000 to date.
In November 2005 he released Seisoen (more than 115 000 units sold to date) and then celebrated 7 years as a professional artist with the release of Grootste Treffers in 2007. In 2008 he collaborated with Juanita du Plessis on the DVD and CD release of Bring Jou Hart, which has sold more than 105 000 units. Being a huge fan of the music of the iconic Afrikaans singer, Koos du Plessis, Theuns released Koue Vuur in 2009, covering Koos du Plessis songs. It reached platinum status within 2 months. In 2012 he released his 5th solo album, Roeper, and also released Hart Vol Drome with Juanita du Plessis.
As a singer he is known for his deep, gravelly voice, but he has also proven to be a prolific song writer, with songs such as Soos Bloed, Jou Asem, Roeper van My Hart and Net Voor die Storm Kom.
This song is off the album, Koue Vuur, released in 2009.
