About Me and My Music
My name is Akoth, an Indie Musician, Singer, Songwriter, Lyricist and Composer. My Music is unique with an organic sound, which is both sweet and spicy, while melody is soft and hard, with a little nostalgia. I started singing and songwriting at around age 4 and have written over 100 beautiful songs, soundtracks and instrumentals. Music to me is everything, my life and all, I completely adore music, and thoroughly enjoy Songwriting, it all just flows, I love it. Currently, I'm busy working on my music, developing and polishing my craft while hoping to one day be a Songwriter for major recording artists. I'm so grateful to be able to share my love, passion, art and music with you.
Anyway, here's what happened, a few years ago, after itching so much to share my Music with the world for so long, I acted, decided to do something instead of simply sitting on my talent while hoping, dreaming, wishing, longing and just waiting to be discovered by an agent, music producer or record label. I took matters into my own hands, took the DIY approach, and with no Music training whatsoever, did everything just using my Iphone. I downloaded a Music Making App, trained myself to use it, took a pen wrote more songs, played instruments & soundtracks, sang, recorded, arranged and produced 'Hello' all by talent, ear and musical instincts. That's basically it!
I did all this with no music or It training at all and over 100 songs & soundtracks rusting in my Song book/recorder. After buying the App, I made Music off my Iphone, using just one finger (my index finger) to make music, tracks and to play different instruments from the sounds that I hear in my head and ear (weird yet so true)! After that, I saved some money, got the songs Mastered properly by professionals and distributed then released a 2 in 1 Album (Songs & Instrumentals) called 'Hello'. Thankfully, my music can now be heard by many people all over the world. You can download it in Broadjam, CDBaby, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Rhapsody and other places online. I hope you truly enjoy.
Peace and love,
