Spotlight: Keshi Auckland Headline Show in November

Spotlight: Keshi Auckland Headline Show in November

C.C. / Tuesday 25th October, 2022 1:39PM

With borders now fully back open following two years of pandemic-related restrictions, it feels like global superstars are finally flocking back to Aotearoa. The phenomenally successful hip hop / R'n'B / soul-pop project of Houston songwriter / vocalist / producer Casey Luong, keshi recently upgraded his Auckland headline event to Spark Arena due to red hot demand. An artist who has amassed more than 3.5 billion listens via such self-produced streaming hits as 2021's 'beside you', 'like i need you' (featured on 2018's THE REAPER EP) and 'drunk' (from 2020's always EP), keshi's only local headline show in 2022 is in fact the first date of a just-announced absolutely mammoth international tour — more than sixty shows are listed over on keshi's site — celebrating the release of his debut album GABRIEL. Snap up tickets while you can and enjoy a selection of recent standout tunes from keshi, plus the official GABRIEL behind the scenes documentary below...

Press release:

Monikered as keshi (stylized), a phonetic play on his name, Casey Luong is an artist's artist. He commands a large and loyal fan base, who finds deep, meaningful connections within the universal themes of his music. With nearly 3.5 billion listens worldwide, keshi has gone on to become a streaming force with his latest debut album, GABRIEL, and acclaimed trilogy of EPs — skeletons (2019), bandaids (2020), and always (2020).

Released March 2022 via Island Records, GABRIEL is keshi’s magnum opus, where for the first time, the 27-year-old singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist finds himself as the main character of his sonically articulated world.

GABRIEL was made in one summer between Houston, where keshi is from, and Los Angeles with Baltimore producer and songwriter Elie Rizk, who co-produced the album with keshi. Until GABRIEL, keshi has been a self-reliant artist, who wrote, produced, engineered and played all the instrumentation on his projects. His initial success includes making his first Billboard appearance when skeletons EP hit #59 on the Top Album Sales chart. With GABRIEL, keshi reached #4, which became the highest charting debut album from a new artist in 2022. On Spotify alone, keshi has generated 5.5 million monthly listeners and his single, ‘GET IT’ landed on VIRAL 50.

An artist known for his captivating stage performances, keshi sold out his 2022 North American and European headlining tour, HELL/HEAVEN, within minutes during the artist's pre-sale, leading to additional dates and larger venues. For the U.S and Canada alone, keshi sold out 40k plus tickets across the 30 dates, with venues ranging from 1,000 to 2,000 capacity. Other accolades include his feature on Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: The Album with the song ‘War With Heaven’ and collaborations with renowned brands like YSL, Fender and Microsoft.
