Feeling a bit camera shy


Take youth, education, ambition and talent and what do you get? You get 19 year-old R&B Singer/Songwriter Keithian. This young soul sensation was born in New Orleans but raised in Texas in a middle class educated family with high expectations for their offspring. This meant go to college, get a career, and be the best at what you do. Usually this does not leave any room for the entertainment industry, but not for this multi-talented individual.
Keithian first started singing at the tender age of 7 with a local church group. As a youngster, his interest in music was ignited by Prince and Michael Jackson, in which he would imitate and sing like. He later became involved in singing in choirs, recitals, and talent shows. When he was 12 he was introduced to acting and modeling by a talent agent who had seen him sing at a local talent show. He began modeling (Gap, Neiman Marcus), acting (Walker Texas Ranger, theatre), and dancing (Sing, Sing, and Swing, Longview Dance), all while taking, Tae-Kwon-Do, playing baseball, basketball, and running track.
As Keithian entered high school he was a well-known talent around the city and a regular performer. He continued learning how to play instruments, dancing, acting, and performing in a local boy band. He also later landed a very prestigious gig as the lead anchor of a local Teen Television show. Keithian was spotted by a music executive who wanted to make a pop star out of him like Lenny Kravitz. He immediately signed Keithian to his production company and recorded several demos, Keithian was not happy with making music that he did not like so he stepped out of the deal in hopes to sing R&B.
At the age of 16 Keithian graduated from high school and moved to New Orleans to attend Xavier University. In a city known for its musical talents, Keithian stood out at as an R&B artist. He lobbied around well-known musicians and producers while crooning his talent and learning about the music industry. He landed roles in acting and music videos (Jessica Simpson “Angles”, Big Tymers “What Happened to That Boy”) he also sang on several compilation albums. While signing at a local showcase he meet producers David “D Funk” Faulk (Mystikal, Lenny Kravitz, Juvinile) and Darious “Furius Stiles” Harrison (Baby, Destiny Child, Marques Houston, Ray J, Lil’ Moe) and began working on songs for his new demo.
Keithian writes all of his songs and produces also. His goal in the industry is to get his music out there and shopped to the major labels. Keithian says, “I know I have the talent and the drive to do what it takes to be a successful artist.” – Off Beat Magazine
