Mole recorded and released his debut studio album, The Home We Built, in 2013 and became the first South African artist to enter the iTunes SA chart at #1 on the first day of releasing his debut album. The album received nominations for Male Artist of the Year, Best Pop Album, and Best Engineer of the Year (Matthew Fink). Mole also received a nomination for Best New Comer in the MK Awards.
His second album, Run, was released in 2016, followed by Ghost, released in November 2019. Run was ranked number 1 on South Africa's iTunes within three months of release, and the single "Run" achieved Gold Status within three months of release. At the 23rd Annual South African Music Awards, the album was nominated for Best Pop Album, Best Produced Album, and Record of the Year.
Mole describes his musical style as folk with an electronica influence. In live performances, Mole can be seen playing guitar, synth, kick drum, and triggered beats at the same time. He has performed at festivals such as 5FM's Cape Town Live Loud, 947's Joburg Day, East Coast Radio's Durban Day, Oppikoppi, Rocking the Daisies, K Day, the Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concert, and the Seattle International Film Festival. He has performed in South Africa, the UK, the US, Thailand, and Russia.
He is also, most recently, the winner of the South African Music Awards record of the year 2021, with Keep it Together.
