Bio

Blues and roots inspired City-Folker

Keith started singing mostly cover songs in music bars in the Brantford area in the 1990s. For about a year, a Wednesday night residency at punk music venue The Turnaround gave him a venue to test out his own material. Playing acoustic guitar in a punk bar was also where he figured out how to earn the attention of an audience.

In the 90s he played shows in Brantford, Toronto, and across Ontario with bands like Transistor Sound and Light Company, Made, and By Divine Right. Soon he moved to Toronto and starting at open mics in the Kensington Market area before branching out into gigs across the city where he could hold his own as a solo act on a bill with full bands. After a couple of years playing pubs 6 nights a week in Irish Folk Bands he moved to Calgary where he spent some time writing, and performing before heading back to Toronto.

In 2005 Keith formed a new band called Endsville. and released Sidewalk Stories under the Endsville name before returning to his solo roots.

Since 2009, Keith has continued to write, record and perform and is now living in Hamilton. His latest album entitled "twenty three" was released December 2017.
