Keaton Henson to play live shows, online
Keaton Henson is an artist in the truest sense of the word, starting out as a visual artist any one who is familiar with clothing label Blood Is The New Black (I have three of their tees) may have already stumbled across some of Henson’s work in that field, however it's his music that has brought him notoriety. The soloist has been gathering momentum online with his heartfelt and honest lyrics coupled with his acoustic, folk sound.
Since childhood Keaton has suffered from panic attacks and as a result performing live has proven somewhat difficult in the past. In an attempt to banish these demons the Londoner will play some live shows via video stream, the first will be broadcast as part of BBC’s Festive Festival at Maida Vale on Monday 12th December. A week Sunday (18th December) Henson will launch a series of his own shows entitled Forts. To see the first Forts performance log onto the artists website on the 18th for what will be a special event for sure. In the meantime you can stream 3 of Keaton’s tracks below.
