Quaglino’s Presents Pianist and Composer OKIEM OKIEM, the pianist and composer who has taken the classical world by storm is set to perform at iconic London restaurant Quaglino’s on Monday 3rd June 9pm.
Back by popular demand, Okiem will be bringing his signature classical charm with a contemporary twist, performing an array of compositions.
London born OKIEM began playing the piano from a young age when his parents realized he could play by ear. His music is described as ‘cinematic classical’, creating his unique sound by combining piano, orchestral instruments and synthesizers.
He has toured on keyboards for many of the biggest artists in the music industry from John Legend to Leona Lewis, Craig David, Jessie J and Tinie Tempah and John Legend. This unique wealth of experience working with top class artists has helped to shape his unique sound, compositions, and astounding live performances that continue to captivate his audiences.
OKIEM also toured for three years with Russia’s biggest pop star Sergey Lazarev. During this time OKIEM wrote three songs for Lazarev’s album Electric Touch. His song was instantly selected as an award-winning soundtrack to the Hollywood film The Chronicles of Narnia.
OKIEM has been compared to composers such as Ludovico Einaudi and Olafur Arnalds. His contemporary take on the classical genre is expressed in his debut solo album XIRO which he recently launched and is now performing with his amazing string section at venues and events across the UK.
