Bio 

Kezia Nell

Originating from Wellington, New Zealand and a uniquely old soul, singer/songwriter Kezia Nell was reared on a diet of 60’s soul, folk, jazz and psychedelia, which is reflected in her writing.

 

Blessed with silky tones and sassy poise, the svelte chanteuses voice recalls the powerfully husky sounds of Loretta Lynn and Elkie Brooks while retaining a distinct identity of its own with common flair for Burlesque inspired performance, she ensures a visual as well as aural feast. While drawing on this cabaret style she retains her rock in roll sensibilities, interacting with her band and the audience.

 

She moved to the US six years ago and has spent time living in Asheville, NC and Miami, Florida, where she released the music video My Miami under Kezia Vs The Lizard; a collaboration with house producer British Lizard which resulted this playful tongue-and- check electro pop track that plays homage to her time in Miami.

 

With a refreshingly confident approach to her art, she reflects: “On the whole I write love songs, but more along the lines of personal interaction and process. I don’t have a set sound, nor would I want one, I find the whole genre thing limiting, I just know a good song when I hear one, and a great album to me is one that has diversity’”

From an early age, Carlos Camilo knew he wanted to pursue music seriously, and has since been influenced by artists such as Alejandro Sanz, Earth Wind and Fire, Brian Culbertson, Brian McKnight, Michael Jackson, Hans Zimmer and countless others.

He’s released five albums independently and had played his music all over the globe with other artists, including Spanish Latin superstar, David Bisbal.
