Spotlight on: OKIEM pianist/composer


A year on from when OKIEM joined us for DEBUT at Shoreditch Treehouse as our special guest, we wanted to catch up on what the pianist/composer is up to now. For anyone who hasn’t met OKIEM (or heard him live) the first thing to bear in mind is his incredible aura and drive. This man never stops!!

Described as “cinematic classical”, he creates his signature sound by combining piano, orchestral instruments and synthesizers.

About Okiem

Okiem has toured on keyboards for many of the biggest artists in the music industry from Leona Lewis, to Tinie Tempah to opening up for John Legend & Prince, to most recently touring with Grammy-Nominated DJ/Producer, Duke Dumont. Prior to that he toured with and wrote songs for Russian sensation Sergey Lazarev which involved relocating to Moscow for 3 years. This unique wealth of experience with top class artists helps to shape his unique sound, compositions, and astounding live performance that continues to captivate his audiences.

Okiem has been compared to composers such as Ludovico Einaudi & Olafur Arnalds. His contemporary take on the classical genre is expressed in the debut solo album XIRO which he recently launched and is now performing with his amazing string section at venues across the UK.
