THE WHO KNEW BAND
Who knew got it’s name from a very personal story. Deidra Lynn, the lead vocalist of Who Knew did not know that she could sing until she was in her 30s. A person she looked up to told her that she had no voice when she was very young, and so she never really knew that she had a gift many would kill to have.
Michael Kosterman had a brief solo career before joining forces with Deidra. He was signed to a small independent record label in Tennessee in 2009, but things didn’t work out. There were some great gigs, some amazing travel adventures and videos to prove it, but it was short lived.
Once back in Canada, Michael started a new band and even did karaoke shows to get by. It was at one of these Karaoke shows that Deidra began to transform into the singer she is today. Michael was sick and couldn’t host. The host has to do a lot of singing if there aren’t any singers, but she stepped up and did the job. Not only did she do the job, she realized after a few dozen comments from the listeners, that she ” had a voice.”
The rest is history. Joined on bass by UK transplant Lee Anthony, The Who Knew Band is quickly becoming one of the more popular Okanagan bands. With bookings at festivals and events all the way to the end of 2018 the future looks bright.
