Hamilton, Ontario based contemporary Christian and Gospel duo and Covenant Award (GMA Canada) nominees, Folarin & Keziah, will release their debut album 'Relentless' in December 2019, followed by a Relentless Tour through major cities in Ontario, Canada.
Folarin & Keziah defy traditional norms and acclaimed for their eclectic style of high energy and exuberant praise, heart-felt and passionate worship laced with songs of devotion that resonate universally with everyone.
Upon relocating to Canada in 2012, Folarin & Keziah started sensing a call to take their music beyond the walls of their local church. “We started meeting and making friends with a lot of people that would never step into the walls of the church but were showing so much support for our music”. They soon went to work on creating a fresh sound that has broad appeal working with Amy King White at Grants Avenue studios Hamilton and Samuel Williams of Samsound productions, Toronto.
2019 was the big breakthrough year for Folarin & Keziah, with the release of their first single and praise and worship anthem “Jesus Is Alive. This was followed by three more singles, “You Are My god”, “Surrendering All”, and “You Deserve” and earned a nomination for the GMA Canada “Gospel Song of the Year” for the single “You Are My God”. Folarin & Keziah also started up their own independent label God Colors Media Inc to promote, produce and publish their music Christian and Gospel music.
The band was born of the need to write and perform original music that crosses multiple genres from contemporary gospel, to praise and worship, to Christian pop and soft rock. Folarin & Keziah have a passion to write songs that invites heaven to earth while also evoking a response to God’s love, grace and mercy. Based on their experience of living and leading praise and worship in Nigeria, UK and Canada, Folarin & Keziah are intentional about reaching beyond the boundaries of color, culture and creed so that everyone can experience the presence of God.
Folarin & Keziah have a heart for God and people. They sing so honestly from their heart and soul, doing so in just the right way, combining art, scripture, and song in perfect unison. Folarin & Keziah’s unique style includes melodic crooks, deft arrangements, and lush harmonies that provide the right foundation to support the core of each song.
Building a reputation for themselves in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area of Ontario, Canada, Folarin & Keziah were soon acknowledged as singer/songwriters and worshippers that are sensitized to the multicultural needs of the modern church and speak to the diversity pervasive and celebrated in every Canadian society.
