Bio

After many failed attempts at writing my own bio in third person, full of wrongly used adjectives which came straight out of the thesaurus anyway I have decided to just lay it down here in first person. Here we go. I am Adrian Burruto, the man behind Yokey; a solo music project which was created to explore the art of song. I simply enjoy making art. I work in my quasi-home studio out in Melbourne’s west toying with sounds and trying to organise them into songs. Just as the visual artist has a studio to experiment with colours and textures, I try to use the studio with a similar approach. Yokey is more commonly seen as live act which currently consists of me armed with my guitar, voice and a couple of stories. You’ll find me around playing your favourite cosy Melbourne trap.
