His two early releases - "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.
