I have one wish.
I wish that K is that one artist I write about that gets big — like really big. I want to sit down, throw on the interwebz one day, and watch a live stream of him in a stadium full of people and be like “yeah… saw that coming”. It’s so important to me that you hear the music for yourself, I’m not even going to grace you with a description. I believe in good music, and this is why I write about it.
Kishi Bashi is (as described on his Twitter) “on tour forever”, quite literally meaning he tours a shit load. I walked into The Biltmore as soon as K started playing (on stage with Tall Tall Trees) and it was hard to get a good spot in the room. The crowd was transfixed with awe. Each couple, singleton, you name it, waiting for their favourite song. Because that’s the thing about K’s music, he writes for everyone.
I had a rare, embarrassing, moment of standing outside the green room in The @BiltmoreCabaret waiting for K to come out just so I could shake his hand. I waited ten minutes, and left — with a single tear in my eye.
