“Eka’s voice is chock-full of soul ... when you do get a hint of her accent it is actually endearing, giving her voice even more character.” - Albert. T
Eka Laki is a Georgian pop-indie singer, songwriter & performer living in Germany. Her music is a mix of soulful vocals, dark electric beats, and empowering lyrics. She draws inspiration from musicians like Jorja Smith, Pharrel Williams, Rosalia, Bruno Mars, James Blake, and Tom Misch.
Eka Laki relaunched her singing career after moving to Amsterdam in 2018. She released her first single “Free Me” in collaboration with Bruno Rex. The two released also “On My Own” and “Better Than You”. The latter is accompanied by a music video self-directed by Eka, shot in Tbilisi, the capital of her home country.
Eka Laki started her career as a singer and performer in Georgia at the early age of 12. She participated in various national and international contests and even performed live on national TV. Yet, she felt the need to change and grow. In 2015, she moved to the UK to focus on education and self-discovery. The time Eka spent in the UK was pivotal to her life. After many years trying to become a “proper adult”, she realized what her true calling is — being on stage and making music.
In 2018, Eka Laki moved to Amsterdam. She decided to take control of her future as an artist and took the first shy steps into writing her own songs. She released three singles over the next two years and directed the music video of one of them.
In 2021, Eka Laki started experimenting with new musical ideas using her looper. In 2022, Eka Laki will be releasing her debut album. Stay tuned for more!
