Picking up his first instrument at the age of 8, producing by 13 and writing at 14, in less

than 10 years KiLLOWEN is pushing forward and honing his craft with an impressive roll

call of ongoing collaborators including p-rallel, Yiigaa, Arlo Parks, Louis Culture and

Finn Foxell + more. With his 2022 releases landing him Spotify’s New Music Friday

(across 5 countries), Our Generation, Fresh Finds UK, and Fresh Finds Pop as well as

support from the likes of CLASH, Complex, Fred Perry, Trench, EARMILK, Mixtape

Madness, DUMMY,and consistent radio spins on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra from Adele

Roberts, Jack Saunders, Gemma Bradley, Jeremiah Asiamah (Coldest Record) and

Sian Anderson and Kiss Fresh, KiLLOWEN is ready to make 2023 his own.

Having gained some serious attention on social media with a short snippet of his first

single of 2023, ‘Sober’, the track became a viral sensation and looks set to bring the

artist the recognition he deserves. The garage anthem was written and produced

entirely by 24-year-old multi-instrumentalist and has since racked up over 3.8M streams

organically on Spotify, garnered 18M views on TikTok with thousands of comments from

his growing fanbase and peaked at #20 on the Top 50 UK Viral chart. Cutting his teeth

in the world of SoundCloud rap before expanding his vision to encompass his unique

fusions of UK garage, hip hop, dance and soul.
