Winner of the 2020 Music Victoria Awards’ Archie Roach Foundation Award for Emerging Talent, Kee’ahn is a proud Kuku Yalanji, Jirrbal, Zenadth Kes song woman who has recently ventured from her home town in North Queensland, to pursue her dream in the Kulin Nation (Melbourne, Australia). 

With a name coming from the Wik people, meaning to dance, to sing, to play, Kee’ahn aims to honour her name and Ancestors through her soulful music that weaves lush melodies and words reminiscent of heartbreak and healing.  

At 22 years of age, Kee’ahn already has an impressive number of performance credits to her name including featuring at St Kilda Festival, and at Laneway Festival 2019 alongside Courtney Barnett, Cry Club, Jungle Cuffs, Kalyani and Thelma Plum; as a feature artist with the Homelands Collective at National, Woodford and Cygnet Folk Festivals and Yirramboi First Nations Festival; and with DRMNGNOW at Golden Plains, St Kilda Festival, BIGSOUND, Splendour In The Grass Forum and Dark Mofo.  

2021 sees Kee’ahn in the studio working on her first album ‘In Full Bloom’.

Her debut single ‘Better Things’ is out now.
