ABI FARRELL


Born in Oxfordshire in 1994, Abi Farrell was raised on a female-driven musical intake ranging from Aretha Franklin to Eva Cassidy to Chaka Khan. Since she started writing songs aged 14, she has created impactful pop and soul songs that won’t leave your head, weaving together soulful vocals, explosive riffs and carefully crafted melodies.

Since then, Abi has graced stages at London’s prestigious Jazz Cafe, Troubadour and Camden Assembly, establishing a powerhouse band. Today, she is an independent artist launching herself into central London shows, with a talented collective of musicians.

KTEE


KTEE has been singing since the moment she spoke her first word and hasn’t stopped since. Countless hours of her childhood were spent in her tiny room in Maria Neustift (Austria), her home town. This is where she trained her voice on her own, relying only on her mother’s bulky red tape recorder.
Heavily influenced by her parents’ desire to see her with a degree that offered “proper career prospects” KTEEstudied at the University of Vienna where she continued working on her singing skills – this time without her tape recorder and not at all alone. She not only had voice coaches to help with voice training, but also roommates and neighbors to annoy with her “gugugus” and “nenenenes” in other words singing exercises. Once, her “understanding” neighbors even threatened to call the police for noise disturbance! – but she couldn’t and wouldn’t be stopped.
It wasn’t the university atmosphere, but her everlasting, internal yearning to sing that led her to move to Vienna. .
Shortly thereafter, she successfully qualified in a singing competition (The Voice), which can be viewed kind of the beginning of her career, since she got to know her present producer there.

After living abroad (Ireland), where she discovered her passtion for songwriting, the urge to really make it big in the music industry was stronger than ever before and the search for her musical identity started anew. “It took some time until I found my place in the world of music, but I never stopped following my dream and now I am more than happy to share who I am with the rest of the world.”
