Hi, I’m Okiem

 

THANK YOU for stopping here to listen to some of my music.

All the music from my album is original. For my debut album I chose to take on the challenge of Composing, Recording, and Mixing ALL of it. If nothing else I thought itʼd be a great learning experience and Iʼve honestly loved every step of the journey. Hereʼs the official Bio but please keep up with my blog and social media (@OkiemOfficial) to find out more about this great musical voyage: 

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

OKIEM is a pianist & composer who's music is described as "cinematic classical”. He creates his signature sound by combining piano, orchestral instruments and synthesizers.

He 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.

The Album Title

The word ‘Xiro’ actually came to me in a dream (corny but true!). According to that dream it means ‘To Create Something from Nothing’. Everyday after composing a new song I’d think to myself ‘this music did not exist yesterday’ ..And here it is, in the real world and I’m now listening to it. So the message of ‘Xiro’ felt like a perfect fit for the title of the Album.
