KEF’S AUSTRALIAN AMBASSADOR IS A BONAFIDE VINYL FANATIC
KEF Australia have appointed a new brand ambassador. Widely known on social media and around the globe, Sydney based Steve Kouta is a music and vinyl enthusiast that has attracted over 50,000 followers on Instagram in just over two years.
Simon Zanin, Brand Manager for Advance Audio who distribute KEF in Australia told StereoNET:
Steve Kouta’s love of music is genetic, inherited from a father who loved obscure British blues bands from the Sixties. Steve now has more than 4,000 records in his collection, spanning a wide spectrum of styles though he admits to an especial love of Seventies funk (George Clinton, Sly Stone) and Nineties hip hop (A Tribe called Quest, Digable Planets, Outkast). Having said this his favourite artist of all time is Prince.
Steve started his Instagram account in January 2015 while working in sales with Universal Music Australia.
His new-found fame all started when he posted one photo of a record sleeve along with some brief comments. It was so well received, he continued posting stylish record sleeve photos, and the rest is history, as they say.
