Born and raised in Little Rock, AR, Keith “has spent most of my adult my life eating, drinking, and dreaming music.” He is based in Augusta, GA, and like all regional sought-after musicians, drives to cities in the SouthEast to perform for all occasions. A glance at his busy schedule is a glimpse into his versatility as a musician. In one day he can be heard providing comfortable background music during brunch at an elegant restaurant in Augusta, serenading a wedding party in the afternoon in Aiken, and then in the evening adding just the right styles and character to enhance a private social gathering.
When people ask Keith, "how would you describe your music?" his reply is “My music is fast, slow, stop and go; it’s happy, sad, good and bad. It’s new school, old school, alternative, pop, and sometimes it rolls, but mostly it rocks.”
Keith’s performance schedule, song lists, videos, audio clips and links to albums can be found on his website.
