Artist Spotlight: John Keek

Written by on February 11, 2016


I know I say this about a lot of artists, but John Keek has a voice that will blow your mind away and will probably become your new favorite artist. He definitely became mine. 

Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, this 18-year-old mixes traditional with modern takes on Jazz and a little bit of Hip Hop, creating music quite like no other. There isn’t much about him on the internet and even fewer pictures. He self produces, plays the saxophone pretty well and likes to draw – all the artwork for his songs are done by him. Oh, and he loves Kendrick Lamar.

“My name is John Keek & I make music so you can feel good.”

I barely use Soundcloud (I was a hardcore Songza fan until they stabbed me in the back and became Google Play Music) but every time I do, I always stumble across pretty cool music and this time it was Keek’s “By Your Side.” I was thrown off at first then immediately got hooked because i’m a sucker for anything with a saxophone, but I was even more intrigued by his deep voice. Pretty soon I was downloading all his songs (he only has 3) and following him on all his social media. 

He’s working on his very first EP but until then follow him on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook and make sure to download his music for free on Soundcloud and enjoy!
