Keto – Superstar
Keto: the hypnotic, lovelorn orchestration of songwriter Leah Sanderson, harks back to the earlier work of Drag City artists’ Will Oldham, Bill Callahan and Josephine Foster, whilst offering a fresh and quintessentially English take on millennial folk. Sometimes solo, sometimes joined by band members, ‘the one thing that you can be sure of is that the music will have a way of leaving you spellbound.” [LeftLion]
The debut EP ‘What We Do‘, released in May 2016, founds fans in Glastonbury, who asked Keto to play last year, and BBC 6Music’s Tom Robinson, who supported the EP, alongside Amazing Radioand BBC Introducing.
Gaining blog support from Clash Mag, Music For Lunch, Drunken Werewolf, Gigwise and Drowned in Sound to name a few, the latter named Keto a must see act after her performance at Dot to Dotfestival.
Keto has played shows alongside Aldous Harding, Lower Dens, Teleman, Cattle and Cane, Black Honey, Eaves, Tom Brosseau and Bob Mould.
