“Who is KEKE?”, a question a lot of people asked themselves after the artist appeared almost out of nowhere onto the virtual scene. A few answers: KEKE aka KIARA HOLLATKO is in her early twenties, her actual musical roots lie deep in jazz studies, now she does rap. KeKe openly talks about struggling with depression and anxiety in her tracks. She claims to be influenced by the likes of Travis Scott, Princess Nokia, IAMDDB as well as FKA Twigs, Kelela and James Blake.

Her debut single “Donna Selvaggia” was released in summer 2018 on the Universal offshoot “MOM I MADE IT”, a title reference that was last sung about with a lot of heart and soul by songwriter LUCIO BATTISTI. She followed up with the singles “Validé ft. Lent” and – in 2019 – with “Paradox”, “Fugazi” and the mellow summer jam “Malibu”.

In autumn 2019, KeKe will perform at Reeperbahn Festival and Further Festival in Hamburg. September will also see the release of a new Trettmann album, featuring KeKe on the track “Wenn du mich brauchst”.
