KAZE - aka Japanese speaking opera graduate Amy Webber - is one of Manchester's exciting new prog-pop artists. After growing up in both the UK and Japan, Webber trained as an opera singer for 6 years before rebelling to follow her pop calling. She brings theatrical performance and soaring vocals to KAZE's definitive and genre bending music. KAZE has been hailed as “fresh-sounding, future-facing” by BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson and praised by BBC Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway for their “syncopated prog-pop”. The KAZE stage show is an immersive experience blending a 5-piece band with singing, spoken word, costume and a backing dancer.
Despite being a brand new act, KAZE have already secured airplay on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio Scotland (Single of the Week), BBC Radio Manchester, BBC Radio Oxford and Amazing Radio. The self-directed one-take music video for 'Pinned On You', their debut single, made ‘Video of the Month’ on OurStage and consequently KAZE were selected as ‘Artist of the week’ for Richer Unsigned. KAZE are currently preparing their debut album, set for release in 2020.
