We’re bringing you exclusive live sessions with some of the most inspiring, upcoming artists as part of our #BarbourIntSessions live music series.
With songs inspired by travelling and discovering new experiences, KYKO is our third artist to play the #BarbourIntSessions. Ahead of his live session on Monday 11th December at 7pm on our Facebook page, find out what inspires him...
I'm a singer, songwriter, producer from South London and I play under the name KYKO. The music we make is kind of tropical pop, upbeat, nature-inspired and the sound is still progressing into something new.
Most of my music is inspired by travel or the feeling I get when I go travelling. A lot of the songs come from when I go somewhere, and I'm outside of my comfort zone, or I'm meeting new people and learning new things. Just seeing different parts of life. That's probably one of the biggest things that motivates me to write a new song.
I like to unwind by finding some places in the city that don't feel like London. Be it the canal, or a park, or a rooftop somewhere where you feel like you're away from the city and not in the hustle-bustle all the time.
The songs we're performing in the session are two previously released ones; it was one we last released and one I wrote a while back. We chose to do them because it fits with the whole free-spirit vibe that Barbour International is all about. They're both about, I guess, travelling and trying new things.
KYKO wears the B.Intl Gabion Quilted Jacket with our B.Intl Small Logo T-Shirt.
Moving forward as an artist, I just want to release more music and push my sound further and further. At the moment I'm just creating and writing loads and just experimenting. I plan to do that for however long it takes to find the right sound.
KYKO’s live session with be live streamed on our Facebook page on Monday, December 11th at 7pm. Join us using #BarbourIntSessions.
