Absolutely My 21st Century Blues Tour Diary

Rising star Absolutely is currently on the My 21st Century Blues Tour with their big sister RAYE, introducing crowds to her multidimensional talent.

Following a feature on Tinashe’s 333 album and writing credits on songs for Anitta, Mahalia, and Normani, Absolutely, born Abby Keen, took center stage after releasing her experimental debut album, CEREBRUM, last year. Taking influence from a whole range of genres, the 13-track body of work refreshingly sounds like an original piece of work that cannot be compared.

Continuing to branch out, Absolutely featured on the drum & bass anthem “Waterslides” alongside DJ Tiësto and British collective Rudimental, released last month.

After completing the North American leg last year, RAYE and Absolutely are gearing up to wrap up their run of shows across Europe with a huge sold-out concert at London’s iconic O2 Arena on March 15. In the meantime, Absolutely takes us behind the scenes of the tour so far by exclusively sharing a diary with EUPHORIA.
