It started out as just another studio day for producer and guitarist, Carmelo Luggeri - until pop legend Kiki Dee came in to put down a vocal .... He'd seen her many times on TV, but once she started singing, he was just blown away by the amazing tone of her unmistakeable voice. Little did he suspect that, from that day on, his musical career was to change for ever.
The late Steve Brown (the man who discovered Elton) told him, 'There's something special happening when you play acoustically with Kiki.. you should team up'. Possessed of a great eye for talent, Steve became their mentor.
Carmelo admits: 'That was the day he got us to turn left'. And now, 25 years on from that epiphany, the synergy between the two has blossomed, firmly establishing them as one of the UK's great musical pairings.
2018 saw a year of musical consolidation for the popular duo - Bob Harris wanted them as opening act for the re-booted Whistle Test, and indeed this turned out to be a seminal moment, leading to long overdue recognition and critical acclaim.
A large and influential TV audience was delighted to see Kiki not only looking superbly fit, but her unique voice even better than they remembered. Both performers enjoy a heritage which stretches back through decades of fine musicianship, yet in all that time Kiki Carmelo concerts never became a museum piece, a go through-the-motions tribute act.
