KAZE have firmly earmarked themselves as a band who demand your attention.
Formed around Graham McCusker from Paisley and Amy Webber from Kent, KAZE’s story first began when the pair acquainted studying Opera singing at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester. Finding a natural chemistry from the off, the pair rebelled and turned to pop. They began writing and performing together; Amy providing the soaring, operatically-charged vocals and lyrics that are so intrinsic to their spellbinding sound and Graham masterminding the complex and definitive musical arrangements from the keys and beyond.
However, the band’s origin was far from plain sailing, with Graham being diagnosed with a leukaemia in 2016. While he went through the trials and tribulations posed by the chemotherapy treatment, the pair used their time spent together for the positive by creating new and beautiful music out of this world.
