From his early beginnings as a pre-teen suburban folksinger, Keith has risen to his current position as a widely respected figure in the field of Rhythm and Blues (he has the Wammie nominations to prove it!) although his friends still mock him on occasion. 

 
After studying at the Berklee College of Music, Keith worked the East Coast hotel circuit for a few years before teaming up with Pittsburgh soul singer Billy Price, with whom he worked extensively. Later collaborations followed with artists including Eva Cassidy and Chuck Brown, the Godfather of Go-Go. The recordings they made together have sold millions of copies worldwide. These days, Keith is hard at work with the Built 4 Comfort band, in addition to keeping up a busy teaching schedule. Come up and say hi to him, he's quite approachable!
