Thandi Phoenix Performs ‘Guarantees’ Live From Happy


Artist Thandi Phoenix swung by our new studio Noise Machines for a special, original version of her latest single Guarantees. The R&B/soul jam is about relationships that are at their last straw. It features and is produced by Arona Mane. 

Released on December 8th (last year), she and her band gave us an energetic performance with synths, percussion, acoustic guitar and of course, her stunning vocal. 

Guarantees was Mixed and Recorded by Tim McArtney, Owen Penglis and Radi Safi. 

This Live from Happy session was made possible by the generous support of AVID and Mojave. AVID is a music company who make the infamous Pro Tools Software, Sibelius and Audio Interfaces and Mojave make world class microphones that are affordable without compromise .

In this session Happy utilised Pro Tools and Avid Carbon Pre Audio Interfaces and the Mojave MA-D Dynamic Handheld Microphone.

Guarantees is Thandi Phoenix’s first independent release which see a new chapter for her after a lot of changes personally and professionally.

Coming in as a four piece — Thandi, two synths, acoustic guitar and cajon, cabasa and shaker — were instant fire jamming on a version of Guarantees that the band had only arranged that morning.

This was a very exciting performance in our new studio, Noise Machines, and will have you bopping your head and also empowering you to think about those relationships that are not so healthy for you.

Here’s what Thandi Phoenix had to say about Guarantees before taking the stage:

“This song I wrote about a situation where I had to set my boundaries and distance myself from someone, because when someone treats you in a way you don’t want to be treated you have to stand up for yourself, and look after yourself.

So this song is about not taking shit from nobody, and expecting people to act in a way that’s for your best interests.”
