JAN BLOHM AND RYNO VELVET JOIN FORCES TO CREATE IMPRESSIVE NEW BALLAD
When two extremely talented musicians and songwriters join forces to launch a new song and music project, you can be sure that it will be a massive success… even more so when those two artists are Jan Blohm and Ryno Velvet!
TUSSEN DIE LYNE, a first for Velvetblohm and part of their upcoming album, is an extraordinary track that keeps you captivated until the very end.
This soft rock ballad, a joint effort by Blohm and Velvet, is about the last sentiment that is shared between two lovers, but not always conveyed. It was produced by Tertius Human.
“We felt that the message behind the song would appeal to a broad audience. It’s about acknowledging that we are all fragile and vulnerable sometimes. In this case, our protagonist wants to remain (or appear to be) subjective by wishing his beloved well,” explains Ryno. “TUSSEN DIE LYNE is only the beginning for Velvetblohm. What was originally supposed to be a once-off show, has branched into an exciting project and there is also an album on the way.”
Although Blohm and Velvet toured together in 2006 and 2009, they only came up with the idea of launching an official Velvetblohm act at the end of 2021. With the help of Vonk Musiek’s Kobie Koen, what started out as a unique way of sharing their biggest hits with fans grew into an opportunity to record and release new material.
Both artists are very excited about embarking on this journey together. “Ryno is one of my favourite vocalists in South Africa. I enjoy working with him and admire the calmness with which he takes on a project,” says Jan.
Ryno adds: “Writing and recording with Jan has been an incredible experience. He has the ability to manage a project in such a way that everyone feels welcome and comfortable, and it is amazing to see him in action.”
The video was filmed at Urban Brew Studios and directed by Wian van der Walt. “I thoroughly enjoyed working with these two music legends,” says van der Walt.
The two dancers in the video are Sanchia Lamprecht and Michael Clarke.

The duo is currently finalizing their debut album at Coolerbox Studio, and a nationwide tour is planned for later this year.
The extremely talented contemporary musician, Jan Blohm has mastered the art of captivating audiences with his music. This acclaimed musician and lyricist, has been continuously revolutionizing the Afrikaans music scene since making his debut in 2004.
He is best-known for hits like Groen Trui, Word Wakker, Ruby, O My Engel, Klein Karoo, Nonnie and Jenny, which is also the titular track of his latest album.
Jan enjoys painting and sculpting and is also the owner of Jan Blohm Art Gallery and Jan Blohm Theatre, as well as the shop, Blohmhuis, situated in Strand.
Ryno Velvet is a versatile guitarist, songwriter and singer from Bellville in the Cape. He shot to fame in 2006 with his hit, Ai My Lam, and is still making waves in the alternative Afrikaans music industry. He has already released four albums and recently released two singles, Te Naby Die Son and Weskus, from his upcoming album, Testament.
Ryno likes to relax by traveling and spending time outdoors. He also regularly writes songs for other artists and looks forward to touring the country later this year.
TUSSEN DIE LYNE is a good example of what can be achieved when passion and talent are utilized in the right way, and is a good indication of what can be expected from Velvetblohm’s first album.
