The Cuzin-Itt Project / Bio
Dixen "Cuzin-Itt" van Onselen, Singer/Songwriter and Guitarist, Born in the year 1984 in Uitenhage, a small town just outside of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Started singing at a very young age. Sang in the School and Church Choirs and being involved with the youth band later in life. Started playing guitar at the age of ten.
Music has always been a part of my life.
I got my first acoustic guitar in the first quarter of grade 5, had some lessons just to kick start my motivation and started teaching myself.
Being self taught, I learn new techniques and styles everyday.
Music comes from the soul and heart.
Music has always been an escape from the real world, a sort of release from modern society. I've come to realize that if you take life to serious you won't enjoy the finer things in life. My songs come from the heart, I write about past experiences and feelings.
I've been in many different style bands in my life to date.
Being in many bands, I've been influenced by a wide range of genres, ranging from rock to metal,
I've recently decided to do a "solo project" to show case my "softer side".
