Xander & The Keys are managed by Luke Adams of MBM Management.
The band released their debut EP in 2013 titled 'The First Marker' which is still available on all major platforms.
In 2014 Xander & The Keys played well over 150 gigs at UK pubs, clubs and festivals including a successful 5 date tour of Croatia you could say this is pretty impressive for a local band only a year young.
The band went on to record their debut studio single 'People That I Know’ at Basement studios. The single got the band a lot of attention on the national and local scenes.
2015 was a great year for the band returning to tour Croatia for the 3rd time, they played several dates including the main stage at HGF Festival where they supported two of Croatia's largest acts (Silente & Elemental). This was a big turning point for the band as they now knew this was more than just a bit of fun!
Over the summer of 2015 the band played various festivals around the UK they even managed to land main stage at Lechlade festival where they supported the likes of Status Quo and Doctor and the Medics to name a few
September 2015 seen the band release their 2nd studio single ‘Lean on’ . The single was released on 4th September LIVE on the Main stage at Bedem Festival, Montenegro to a crowd of 10,000 people. Xander & The Keys were the first ever international band to play the Bedem festival.(Another great achievement for the band). The single also achieved BBC airplay on a few occasions.
The band have several music videos and mini documentaries available on Youtube to keep the fans updated with the day in day out progress of their journey.
Looking forward to 2016 and beyond the band plan to record and release 3 more singles and work with a creditable PR agency to get their music into the right hand.
