Biography

Jamie Keefer, lead singer and song writer, grew up in California the son of a 60's pop legend. His father, professionally known as Keith, had several hits including 98.6 and Ain't Gonna Lie. This had a profound impact on Jamie's musical stylings. Over the years, Jamie continued to collaborate with his father and even today, seeks his guidance and opinion. The Under Kings, under Jamie's vision and inspiration, is a cohesive group of talented musicians and friends who strive to be free and experimental with the creation of our original songs. It's a strategic collaboration among talent with a single goal of making fun and enjoyable music. To coin a phrase, "it could be made in to a monster, if we all pull together as a team." - Have a Cigar, by Pink Floyd

Lyrics

Look Outside

Written By: Jamie Keefer

Have you taken a look outside
Evaluated the situation
Somethings wrong or just ain’t right
Trickle down theorists do all the taking
What’s that leave for you and me

So, take another look outside
Recognize your competition
Maybe healthy maybe wise
But let’s not get all ridiculous
About the circumstances, we’re all facing
Facing, facing, facing
Facing, facing, facing

Take another look outside
To understand what it is I’m saying
I’m here to tell you all tonight
There’s a war that’s raging on without us
And how do we forget the past, we’re all facing
Facing, facing, facing
Facing, facing, facing

Take another look outside
Evaluated the situation
Somethings wrong or just ain’t right
Trickle down theorists do all the taking
What’s that leave for you and me
