Keelay & Zaire are a bi-coastal team that operates with only one concrete rule; creating music with unlimited range.


Versatility is the only constant in today's music movement, which is the prized calling card for up and coming production duo Kyle 'Keelay' Pierce & Tim 'Zaire' Lewis. The potent team operates with only one concrete rule; creating music with unlimited range. Complementing each other's styles with precision, Kee & Zee work as a sole production machine that spawns gritty classic hip-hop, soulful R&B, and any other medium that requires an exclusive sound from the team.

Keelay, hailing from the city of Salt Lake, Utah, now holds down the West Coast production headquarters, 'The Torta Oven' in the Bay Area. With virtually unlimited talent pools to pull from, "Layski" creates deep canvases for some of hip-hop's most persuasive artists to display their art on. The likes of Cali Agents, Fortilive, and Saafir are only a sample of the heavy hitters that have been laced personally from Kee, with the promise of many more in the near future. It's safe to say that Keelay is and will continue to be a driving force in the West, as well as internationally.

Zaire, originating from Dayton, Ohio, now conducts half of the duo's musical grind at Sole Vibe Studios East located in Newport News, VA. On the east, Zai-Boogie maintains a constant flow of music by collabing with some of VA's finest, most notably Norfolk's super emcee/songwriter Khizman of Trophy Winner Records, and Newport News' own bluesy singer/songwriter Jonathan Moore. Continuing a family musical tradition originating from a notoriously musically rich city, Zai's adamant perseverance to carry the torch is evident in his art.

Aside from their production savvy, Kee & Zee also invite audiences to come into their world and see that there's much more to the music than what appears. Whether it be from comedic video blogs detailing beat construction to more serious topics like political activism, Kee & Zee show the world that their artistry is not only far from one dimensional, but full of the creative vigor that connects with the masses on multiple levels.

Deep behind the veil of creation, Kee & Zee are now upon completion of their debut LP, Ridin High, which promises to deliver an incredible look into the music and lifestyle of the multifaceted team. Coming along for the smoke filled journey is an extraordinary supporting cast of passengers such as Sole Vibe representatives Slo-Mo, Mario Dones, The A.V.E., J.Fish, Phonte of Little Brother, Supastion, Blu, Cali Agents, Darien Brockington, Tash of Tha Liks, Torae, Saafir, Khizman, Fortilive, Jonathan Moore, Emilio Rojas, Surreal, Jony Fraze, and Tiffany Paige as well as many others. From hard hitting, scratch heavy rap to smoke traced R&B rhythms, Keelay & Zaire swerve right into the fast lane with ease with their versatile talents, creating their own lane to ride out to.
