"Kee'ahn is one of the hottest new talents to grace the Townsville music scene. She's made her mark as one of the best buskers in town and for good reason, her voice is amazing. The only competitor to her voice is her skill at the acoustic guitar. When Kee'ahn isn't performing she puts her efforts into an equally impressive artistic field, musical theatre. Many Townsville residents and travellers alike were mesmerised by her vocal solo during "Seasons of Love" in Townsville Choral Society's production of RENT in 2016." - Facebook.
