This Week

Keaton Henson

January 19, 2016 - 9:00pm Keaton is a 25-year-old songwriter from the suburbs of London. He spends his days alone, writing, recording and drawing from his bedroom. At least that was the plan. Then Zane Lowe heard his song 'You Don't Know How Lucky You Are' and loved it so much he threatened to play it twice in one show on BBC Radio 1. Now Keaton has released two albums, "Dear..." and "Birthdays," and occasionally, reluctantly, and only in magical spaces, he plays live, always to great acclaim.
