DUBBED THE RHYTHM KING

About


Bob Dylan said:  “The world don’t need any more songs. They’ve got enough. As a matter of fact, if nobody wrote any songs from this day on, the world ain’t gonna suffer for it. Nobody cares.  

Unless someone’s gonna come along with a pure heart and has something to say.”

 

Akova has been described as the new Bob Dylan with added intrigue. He is an enigma, like nothing you have see before. Akova is so much more than a singer songwriter.

His music is a unique, heartfelt creation that heightens awareness like a gentle tap on the shoulder. Akova is a compelling storyteller, having the ability to channel his life experiences in thought provoking music, creating a sound you just cant help but admire.

This acoustic multi-instrumentalist inspires and uplifts audiences worldwide.  Dubbed ‘The Rhythm King’ by music media Akova’s raw beat driven  music takes over your body willing you to dance! He enchants audiences with his proficiency in wielding his many instruments, combining vocals, guitars, ukulele, cajon, djembe and ankle bells (often all at once!) You can't help but feel Akova's energy lift a room.

He has supported Xavier Rudd and the United Nations, Ash Grunwald, won the GLObalvision Song Competition and toured his new album, This Is Me Now nationally playing festivals and venues around the country.

Here’s what others in the industry are saying about Akova:


“This guy is sic!” -Ash Grunwald

“He doesn't quite sound like anybody else. I was sincerely blown away. I sat there wondering how he knew that last song was exactly what I needed to hear? This man is brilliant and everyone should buy his album. This is my review. This guy is gold floating down the river - just waiting to be plucked and shared.”
-Sacred Lab, Music Blog

“AKoVA’s welcoming vibe has a worthy place at ‘Summery’ festival gatherings universally. He’s a natural showman. Any act to get people dancing like
no-one’s watching is always welcome in this crazy world.”
- Forte Magazine

"Now that was a show!"
- Settlers Tavern, Margaret River WA

“Akova was not what I was expecting but what I was craving.”
Beth Jane

“There’s a forgotten bridge between humanity and nature that Akova crosses.
His music is exemplary of the kind that could be made in modern tribal
society, albeit performed by one man.”
- YAK Magazine


“Akova’s an amazing performer. His music is not only original and fun it has real substance and meaning. I still can’t believe it’s just one guy playing all those instruments at the same time. What a showman.”
- Adam Iffland 92.5FM


With extensive national community radio support AKoVA continues to tour sharing the love… and he’s always open to a hug or a chat after a show.

“He doesn’t quite sound or feel like anybody else. I was sincerely blown away. I really wanted to stand up and holler:                      ‘Holy fuckin’ shit!’ while clapping and staring him down with savage intent. Instead I clapped politely and sat in my shell wondering how he knew that last song was exactly what I needed to hear. This man is brilliant and everyone should buy his album. That’s my review. Honestly. This guy is pure gold floating down the river - beautiful to thebeholder and just waiting to be plucked and shared.”
