On June 24, independent singer-songwriter Keiko Necesario released a soothingly delicate yet emotionally hard-hitting music video for the last single on her eponymous first album Keiko, “Forever Alive”. Just a few days from now, the acoustic folk-pop songstress is set to follow it up with an even stronger sophomore EP called [escape].

“If the first album was mellow, then this next one is more powerful and loud,” shares Necesario, who does not shy away from exploring different arrangements for her new music. Aptly named [escape], her forthcoming EP embraces the change in her tracks’ stylistic elements, shifting from her usual soft acoustic performances to a more dynamic electro-folk style.

Catch Keiko Necesario’s [escape] EP Launch on June 30 (9PM) at Route 196, Katipunan, Quezon City with performances by Tom’s Story, Curtismith, and QUEST.

Tickets are priced at P400, inclusive of your very own copy of [escape] and a free drink, available at the venue entrance and through stagessessions.com
