“Congratulations to the 2011 Pirate Radio Best New Artist from the RockStar contest - Pierre Opperman and his pop/folk song "Runaway". Congratulations! Pierre is from Knysna, South Africa.”

Opperman's husky voice has been compared to the likes of Chris Rea, Cat Stevens and David Grey, making him fall comfortably in the genres of Acoustic Folk, Electronic and Blues.”

“Local muso, Pierre Opperman, and Knysna FM DJ, Wayne Greenstone, contemplated the seasons and made this calming song.”

“Come Alive" has reached the #1 spot on the Top 40 Song Vault Auditions.”

“You Made The Battle of the bands top 50”
