Howdy folk
My name's Rich Keam, and i'm based down in Brighton.
I sing and write songs and play a nylon strung acoustic, its a lot easier than lugging amps, pedals and electric guitars around.
I think music should have shades of light and dark so try and express that with a picky/strummy style.
But mainly i just like having fun and playing the guitar.

Biography

Hi, my name's Rich Keam, and all i really love doing is playing the guitar. I've recently been finishing and recording the songs that've been spinning round my head for a while on my 8-track and gigging around the South.
Before this little project i was playing guitar for Polly Scattergood for a couple of years, touring and making her first album. Before that i honed my craft playing in as many bands as i could, supporting everyone from The Strokes at Portsmouth Guildhall, to Bat for Lashes at Camdens Roundhouse.
But i think my proudest moment was playing at the legendary CBGBs in New York before it closed, when i was 18, with my schoolpals, in the first band we were all in. Ahh, happy happy days!
