SA MUSIC BAND GOODLUCK GOES GLOBAL
GoodLuck is a South African live-electronic band that is taking the world by storm.
The band was formed in 2010 and is made up of trio Ben Peters, Matthew O’Connell and Juliet Harding.
GoodLuck has been climbing its way to the top since then. The band opened for Pharrell Williams live in South Africa, which was part of his world tour. GoodLuck has also performed at sold-out concerts in Amsterdam, Berlin and London.
The success doesn’t stop there. GoodLuck is currently touring and writing in the USA, and they have just signed their first global record deal!
GoodLuck has signed a deal with Ultra Music Records in the United States and Sony B1 Recordings in Germany. They join some of the world’s best dance music artists such as Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki, Deadmau5, Benny Benassi and KYGO to name a few.

GoodLuck will release the hit track ‘I’ve Been Thinking About You’ worldwide on 31 March. The track was already #1 on South African radio stations in 2016, but will now be released with a dance floor remix.
Ultra Music Records have praised the band for their achievements and musical style.
“GoodLuck are something of a phenomenon in South Africa, having clocked up eight chart Number 1’s in the past four years and amassed over 4 million Spotify plays of their groundbreaking, multi-instrumental sounds.
“‘I’ve Been Thinking About You’ combines sublime vocals with subtle, progressive drums and piano chords – playing with offbeat rhythms and electronic samples as it gathers intensity.”

International Management, Row Weber and Marcello Pagin said: “Working in the entertainment industry for more than 19 years, I know when we have something special. This project will make waves beyond Cape Town and South Africa. Glad they chose us to be part of this ride.
“GoodLuck’s performance is one that has opened the proverbial Pandora’s box on what audiences around the world will be demanding in years to come. Electronic music has never felt more real.”
Signing major international record deals is a new era for GoodLuck as the band takes on the global stage in 2017.
