Young South African jazz vocalist, Vuyo (Vuyolwethu) Sotashe, moved to NYC in 2013 after being awarded the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship to pursue a Masters of Music at William Paterson University. He won first prize at the very first Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival Vocal Competition in 2014, and performed on the festival's main stage in February 2015. He also won the Audience prize award and placed second over-all at the Shure Montreux Jazz Voice Competition in 2015, held at the annual Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. He also placed third in the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute International Jazz Vocal competition, where he was the very first male vocalist ever to place in the competition's finals. Sotashe was the winner of the biggest music scholarship competition in South Africa, the South African Music Rights Foundation Scholarship, where he performed for the former South African President Thabo Mbeki.
Sotashe has also sung on prestigious international stages, including Arcevia Jazz Fest and the Fermo Jazz Festival in Italy; the Stockholm Jazz Festival with South African National Youth Jazz Band in Sweden; at the Cape Town International Festival with George Benson and the Cape Town Symphony Orchestra; the Johannesburg Joy of Jazz Festival; and he has toured with the SAMA Award (Grammy equivalent) winning band Proxy in the UK and Ireland.
