About Josef Akin
Musician, producer and composer, Josef is currently jumping between Glasgow and London, lighting up festivals, live music and jazz venues. Primarily a pianist/keyboardist, his music moves between genres to reflect his many influences: jazz, hip-hop, dance music, afrobeat, spiritual jazz, to name a few.
Josef is currently on tour, performing two outstanding EP’s – ‘Chimera’ and ‘Enymore’ alongside a stellar band which features Harry Weir (Corto.alto), Anoushka Nanguy (Kokoroko) and India Blue (Azamiah). Both EP’s are inspired by Akin’s extensive listening and absorption of music around him, in particular hip-hop, jazz, spiritual jazz and soul, whilst trying to find his own voice within this. particular. The music will follow the tides one minute, adhering to dense arrangements, then leap into the open void the next, as textured soundscapes blur into aerial saxophone adventuring.
