Bio

There’s a contrast to Keelan Mak - a push and pull between melancholy and enlightenment, breaking apart into tiny explosions of sound and feeling. An ethereal dreamscape, where song is melded with consciousness in his fragile form of expression.

Emerging from Brisbane, Keelan’s music is a smoky, sultry mixture of himself and the inner city. He is inspired by the art and artists that make up this fast-paced and evolving metropolis. Combining the blissful song writing of James Blake with the atmospheric production of Rufus, Keelan Mak seamlessly blends indie and electronic music to create a unique artistry in the music industry landscape.

Such a natural singer and such a strong chorus. Leaps out of my headphones.

Another cracker song from Keelan Mak! Slick vocals and production - you get the feeling that he's Australia's next crossover artist in waiting. It won't be too long at this rate.
