UK SINGER-SONGWRITER ANNOUNCES TWO INTIMATE SHOWS FOR MELBOURNE & SYDNEY
Currently in the middle of a national tour supporting Kate Miller Heidke, UK singer songwriter Ryan Keen will play two intimate shows for Frontier Touring at Melbourne’s Boney on August 31 and The Vanguard in Sydney on September 1.
“The effect Ryan has on a crowd is undeniable! He has a special and rare gift.” - Kate Miller Heidke
No stranger to the road, Ryan Keen is an artist doing it the old fashioned way. Constantly touring, Keen has shared the stage with fellow singer songwriters such as Ben Howard, Newtown Faulkner, Leona Lewis and joined good friend Ed Sheeran on multiple tours, most recently in Vienna last month.
Keen’s debut full length album Room For Light (out now through Warner Music), released in December last year, showcases how this young musician’s breadth of musical talent, coupled with a beautiful song-writing style and incredibly engaging live performances, have taken him from playing the tiny room acoustic circuits of the UK, to headlining to over 1000 people.
"Lush vocals and a humble, friendly aesthetic saw an acoustic folk explosion in UK’s Ryan Keen. Bass triggered by foot pedals and beats created by frantic hand movements carefully striking the body of his guitar made for a fine appetiser. If his next Australian single and set closer Focus incites the nation to do exact that, Keen will return to headline venues of the same size in no time." - TheMusic
The songs are quietly varied and include collaborations with some extremely talented and likeminded artists in the likes of Ninja Tune's Fink and Newton Falkner. Current single ‘Focus’ (click here to watch) beautifully showcases Keen’s warm breathy voice, virtuosic flamenco inspired guitar playing and confessional song writing style.
