HEAR: “If + When” –
John Keek shares his new single “If + When”, released today via Big Dada. “‘If + When’ is the first song I wrote when I moved to LA from Vegas,” he explains. “It’s about uncertainty.”
Keek, now 20, began playing the Sax at age 14, hailing from a Las Vegas family full of talented musicians, he gravitated early on toward Jazz but has since drawn on his wide-ranging inspirations – artists like Donny Hathaway, Louis Cole, Ambrose Akinmusire, and James Fauntleroy – to craft a sound that encompasses elements of pop, RnB and Hip Hop.
Two early self-released gems – “By Your Side” featuring the voice of Georgia Anne Muldrow and “Come Give It Up” – set out his stall as a musician. With Pigeons & Planes extolling his “penchant for unusual melodies and skillful, jazz-leaning instrumentation”, he also caught the ear of UK musician King Krule, eventually joining him, sax in tow, on his US West Coast tour, including opening a recent secret show in LA.
Now in Los Angeles, with a like-minded circle of musicians around him, John Keek shares his latest song “If + When”, mixed by Grammy winner Ben Kane (for D’Angelo’s Black Messiah), with artwork by comedian and illustrator Zack Fox, the track is available digitally now via Big Dada.  A full package including “By Your Side” and “Come Give It Up” will be available for the first time across all digital platforms on 27th October.
Hear “If + When” above and stay tuned for more from John Keek.
