With her exciting new project London Electronic Orchestra, Kate Simko has intricately fused her background as a classical pianist with her passion for electronic music.
An inimitable blend of lush strings weaving in-and-out of synths and loose grooved beats, the LEO brings classical music's ornate instruments back to the forefront.
The group has created a huge buzz with appearances at a number of high profile events including the National Gallery, iTunes festival at the Roundhouse, LEAF Festival, Latitude and Bestival. Kate Simko & London Electronic Orchestra released their highly acclaimed debut album in May 2016.
'Fresh, exciting, contemporary, yet of course, classical' Independent
'Danceable but so sophisticated it can stand on its own' Billboard
'It's rare than an artist envelopes themselves within the classical scene to this extent' Vice
