Acoustic Rhythmic Roots
“I’ve been playin music ever since I was a kid. One day I was
driving with the old man when this song came on the radio that
put me on my path right there and then. That song was Sunshine
Superman by a guy called Donovan. He’s been a big inspiration
to my music ever since.
Like Donovan I took the acoustic root. I’m a multi-instrumentalist
with no sequences, loops or pedals. I just get a kick out of getting
the most sound out of what I can hold at the one time while
singing about what touches me emotionally. Actually it’s all
about emotion. It’s what I see, what I feel and what I have learnt.
I’m a dreamer not a planner. I just go with the flow. I listen to my
gut and follow my intuition. Cause life can change in an instant
on this crazy journey.” AKOVA
