Aka Kelzz

Aka Kelzz has always loved making music, as music was somehow always part of their life. Growing up in a musical family and with strong Jamaican heritage, Kelzz simply perceived music as their natural surroundings. It was only a matter of growing up until thoughts and feelings manifested themselves in the form of Kelzz’ first songs. Gentle melodies meet a lo-fi beat with urban pop elements, while a rich voice transports the warmth and comfort of a summery afternoon spent at the lake. In combination with lyrics that ostensibly deal with mental health, Kelzz powerfuly and adeptly shows that writing can be a good way to manoeuvre oneself into better times.

Aka Kelzz receives a grant of 5,000 euros in 2022 for the production and release of an EP. In the course of the grant, Aka Kelzz receives coaching from Nicky Böhm.
