Kebu (alias Sebastian Teir) from Finland is a bright comet in the world of synthesizer music, who recently won the German Schallwelle Award as Best Artist 2017. He is known for his YouTube videos, which have gathered over 25 million views and fans from all around the globe:
Kebu is a true synthesizer wizard, whose music is distinguished not only by a dedicated treatment of analogue synthesis but also of an audience-captivating live performance. His concerts radiate warmth and joy and show off a huge arsenal of analogue synths, which brings to mind the best solo synthesizer artists from the 1970’s and 1980’s. Indeed, Swedish Gaffa.se said in a rave review of one of Kebu’s gig that “Jarre’s successor has arrived”.
Following the release of “Perplexagon”, which debuted as number 6 on the Finnish album charts, Kebu has toured Europe and given over 70 concerts in eleven different countries. The concert in Oslo was recorded for a two-hour long live album (CD & DVD), which will be released by ZYX Music in autumn 2018. This autumn, Kebu embarks on a new Europe tour to support the release of the new live album. On this tour, a few new tunes from his upcoming studio album will be introduced as well.
