Shay Khan

Shay Khan is a British/South Asian artist & musician creating his own distinctive flavour of experimental folk/punk/rock, sung in English, Urdu, Punjabi and Hindi.
Inspired by his Eastern nomadic roots and a lineage of esteemed poets in the family harking back generations, Shay's devotion to storytelling was ignited from a very tender age with influences including luminaries such as Anushka Sharma, Elizabeth Fraser, Rachid Taha, Tom Waits, Patti Smith, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, David Bowie, Velvet Underground and Bob Dylan to name but a few.
Having performed extensively across Europe as well as being personally invited by American folk artist Ani DiFranco as main support on her European tour, Shay is all set to present his highly anticipated debut single, Sapphire Ghost to the world (release date 09 Nov 18).
Shay is signed to independent German label Klangbad and is in the throes of putting the finishing touches to forthcoming album 'My World Too', produced by Hans-Joachim Irmler, founder member of Krautrock pioneers FAUST.
