Nibs van der Spuy’s spellbinding acoustic guitar style was first taken notice of when he was performed live with his band, Landscape Prayers,slaunching their four highly acclaimed Acoustic/Instrumental albums between 1993 – 2003. His diversity as a songwriter, singer and finger stylist, reached a broader audience with the release of his solo albums; ‘Lines on my face'(1999) and ‘Flower in the rain'(2002). Both these acoustic gems were nominated in the best instrumental category at the South African Music Awards.
Nibs’ versatility to cross pollinate various musical styles from African, Classical, Celtic, World, Maskanda, Indian and folk can be fully appreciated on his first International release, ‘Beautiful Feet'(2007). It has received rave reviews from the London Guardian to the Sydney Herald, and in May 2007, was album of the month in 4 major German publications. This has been accompanied by intensive touring across the globe with a highlight being the prestigious East Coast Blues & Roots festival in Byron Bay, Australia. Here Nibs shared the stage with such luminaries as Ben Harper, Taj Mahal, Bonnie Raitt, Bela Fleck and Piers Faccini.
He has more recently teamed up with Guy Buttery and toured abroad as well as in SA . The beautiful melodies that accompany his lyrics are his signature. He is an Afro Folk musician of the first order.
