Hi there!

Alto Key is a London-based indie singer/songwriter with a signature sound that is piano-driven, toasty, nut-free and loved by ear-holes. Since planting his musical seeds in 2018, he has been steadily growing and watering his online follower garden as he himself sprouts as an artist.

In March 2018 he released his debut EP, 'Animals'. The songs were well received and played across various radio stations, podcasts and blogs including BBC Music Introducing. He also won the Indie Originals 2019 Music Competition for Best Lyrics in Folk. His latest EP 'Seas Unknown' is out now!

Alongside his original music, his fans also enjoy his raw piano/vocal covers and videos sprinkled with his patented 10/10 sense of humour. He is currently unsigned, unmanaged, and could use a helpful hand if any are going spare on the black market.

I moved to East London in the hopes of expanding Alto Key with songwriting collaborations and working with other keen indie folk musicians! I'm looking for partner(s) in crime who want to take their music career seriously whilst also having fun.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions and I'm looking forward to hearing from you :)
