DUBBED THE RHYTHM KING

About


Bob Dylan said:  “The world don’t need any more songs. They’ve got enough. Unless someone’s gonna come along with a pure heart and has something to say.”

"Every once in a blue moon, an artist comes along that projects their heart on a screen, for us to watch their story like a film with their music as the soundtrack. Donovan. Bob Dylan. John Lennon. These are artists that have influenced others in such a deep way, they’ve been known to change lives. AKoVAs latest single and video 'Headlights' is being aired across America, Canada and the United Kingdom. " Scope Magazine

AKoVA is a world class musician who bends genres and captivates audiences. This multi-instrumentalist creates beautiful music with many different instruments. Setting rhythm with his feet he strums the guitar and plays the djembe with his hands and sings with his heart mostly at the same time.

AKoVA’s journey began as a child:

“I’ve been playing music ever since I was a kid. One day I was driving along with my old man when this song came on the radio… ‘Sunshine Superman’ by Donovan. That song put me on my path right there and then. Donovan’s been a big inspiration ever since.”

AKoVA is more than a singer songwriter. He is a unique and compelling storyteller having the ability to channel his life experiences into thought provoking music. He shares one mans intimate evolution, leaving listeners with the priceless gift of hope. 

This acoustic multi-instrumentalist inspires and uplifts audiences worldwide.  Dubbed ‘The Rhythm King’ by music media AKoVA’s grooved out rhythms frees your bodyto move while his lyrics heighten awareness like gentle tap on the shoulder. You can't help but feel AKoVA's energy lift a room. 

"I feel that I am more than a musician right now. I've played music my whole life, but that's not all that I am anymore. I have been on a challenging sometimes epic journey learning to let go of the attachment of thinking with my head to feeling with my heart. We all think with our heads but its our heart that has all the answers. They say it's the longest journey you will ever take, and yet you only travel around 18 inches. My goal is to empower you and to inspire you to be the best you that you can be through my personal experiences. My lyrics are conscious yet not overwhelming as I still have a bit of the rocker from West Sydney in me. I am enjoying music more than I ever have as I have found myself and my purpose." - AKoVA

AKoVA is in an exceptional talent.

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.

“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.”
