Aleister KelmanOther genre
Aleister is a singer-songwriter living in Tokyo. Born in Cambridge, UK in the mid 80s he was raised on a household diet of 60s reggae, 70s rock and Mississippi blues and taught how to play Leonard Cohen songs on the guitar by his mother, aged 14. His early 20s were spent in East London where he was exposed to bossanova, calypso, various styles of jazz and electronic music. The resulting sound is an sunshine mix made from catchy melodies and finger clicking rhythms, strung together by an optimistic sense of songwriting.
