Looks, charm and fifteen seconds of fame on the TV. In todays society this is often enough to be considered a star.
So what would you get if you substituted the obligatory ‘TV appearance’ with an unprecedented desire to perfect your craft, then marinaded all those ingredients in humility? Quite possibly Kieran Skye.
A talented Producer, Singer-Songwriter signed to 89 Arrogance Recordings, Kieran is a modern day artist with the desire to entertain like an old school artist.
Not tied to any specific genre, he combines pop, indie, R&B and soft rock with showmanship and a real thirst to please the audience like his inspirations which span decades, the juggernauts from Motown, Bob Dillon, Jimi Hendrix right through to arguably modern greats like Usher and Justin Timberlake.
Teaching himself to play the piano and guitar has assisted him with his songwriting and just as importantly his producing.
Though he appreciates the computerised sounds of his Logic, it’s the live elements that gets his creative juices flowing. "Nothing beats the live sounds of music, that’s why as much as you love that CD, you love seeing the artist performing the same songs in the flesh even more".
This is what he’s hoping the many newly found fans that have seen him perform in tours and live gigs he’s done feel. Born and bred in Maldon Essex, Kieran joins a conveyor belt of talented musicians birthed from this colourful English County. "I’m excited to put Tolleshunt D’Arcy on the map. Nothing really happens here except for fat Pat driving around at a 45 degree angle in her 3 wheeler."
When he’s not locked himself in his studio writing and producing, Kieran loves nothing better than performing and is at his happiest when he’s on stage showcasing his seductive vocal tones with his live band, combing the works in his own way of some of his favourite artists with his own material. His sets definitely make entertaining viewing and listening.
Currently working on his debut album, 89 Arrogance have enlisted top English producers as well as some of the recording industries heavyweight writers and producers in Los Angeles as he prepares to showcase that there is more to looks and charm when it comes to selling records.
As one of the UK’s most promising stars, soon audiences will have the name Kieran Skye on the tip of their tongues. Warrantably.
