cds-F1010019Lois wanted to be a musician from the time she was a young child, but only started to follow her dream after she became blind.

In 1992, a week after being declared blind Lois joined the Durban-based covers band, Ricochet, where she shared the vocals and played keyboard.

On moving to Cape Town, Lois and Craig Strachan formed tuesday’s child, a rock band in which Lois sang lead vocals and played guitar. Lois was the lyric writer for tuesday’s child, and co-wrote the music.

Nowadays, Lois and Craig play occasional acoustic sets that are a combination of their own songs and songs of some of their favourite musicians.
