Young British guitarists Mikhail Asanovic and Jake Wright, a.k.a. Showhawk Duo, have dazzled audiences worldwide with their spectacular approach to playing the guitar.
Their style has broken down barriers between acoustic and electronic music, with flawless transitions from old-school trance classics to modern funky house in live shows that know no boundaries.
Mik is a classical guitarist at heart, having studied at Manchester’s RNCM whereas Jake is an electric junkie who grew up playing in rock and metal bands. Mik’s classical foundation shines through in the music with Jake’s raw percussive approach always keeping the crowd moving. Their unique sound has turned many an acoustic night into a thumping rave. Together, they started out as buskers and have since gone on to play all over the globe.
The Showhawk Duo has appeared at or on Nick Grimshaw’s Radio 1 Breakfast Show; the LAD Bible; BBC Radio Bristol; the Main Stage at Bestival; Glastonbury Festival; Isle of Wight Festival; Boomtown and more. They played sell-out shows on their 2015-2018 UK tours, headlining at The O2 Forum in the most recent.
They also hoover up the five-star reviews, have played a sell-out gig at the Edinburgh Fringe and enjoyed a 20-date residency at nightclub Pacha in Ibiza.
