About: Joshua KYEOT (pronounced kye-oh-tee) is a British-Ghanaian singer/ songwriter from South London who writes soul songs with a timeless quality and has a tone that is instantly recognisable. Taking jazz, pop, classical and rock as inspiration, he cites Stevie Wonder, Sisqo, and Michael Jackson among his top influences.

Joshua hopes to bring something new to the music landscape that can be respected by musos and casual listeners alike.
What Hidden Herd say: Joshua KYEOT’s voice offers a guiding, sincere companion into his heartfelt opus on ‘Still’ – a rare vocal charm that delivers a sense of age well beyond his years and along with it, a sweet melancholic euphoria.
