Featuring singles written by each artist, covers, and newly written work. This promises to be a night to remember.
London based multi-instrumentalist singer songwriter Luke Yates beguiles audiences with stories of love, lust, life, freedom and
adventure. Having grown up in Cumbria, he draws on experiences from travelling the world with a guitar, vocal coaching for the world’s leading contemporary choir, managing a successful music venue
and performing in over 80 countries.
Last year Luke began working with mentor Judy Stakee (Gavin DeGraw, Sheryl Crow, Katy Perry, The Civil Wars). He’s spent time honing his craft with influences including Glen Hansard, Damien Rice, Regina Spektor, Jamie Cullum and Imogen Heap. Luke was recently featured on BBC Radio 2 and in 2017 has so far performed major international venues including London's legendary venue The Troubadour and New York's Rockwood Music Hall.
"Luke has many strings to his bow, including being an absolutely superb songwriter.” — Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
Singer songwriter Keekwyn brings honesty to her music writing about love, separation, higher consciousness, and self worth. Writing out of Brooklyn, NY, Keekwyn pulls her experiences from her work as a therapeutic counselor, a voice teacher, a soul mate, a friend, and a spiritual seeker.
Keekwyn has led and developed several bands in her career including the funk soul sound of Keekwyn & The Hackers. She has performed at the credited The Bowery Electric, The Bitter End, Arlene’s Grocery, Rockwood Music Hall and many more iconic New York City music venues. Keekwyn released her first EP Naked Under Covers in 2012, and her second EP Tell It To The Mister with Keekwyn & The Hackers in 2015. Recently, she has been working closely with Grammy nominated engineer Michael Prochilo on an exciting new venture coming in 2017.
