Keiths first journey into music was the usual garage band thing. He joined Dublin band Big Into Rhythm and then went about putting together their own recording and rehearsal space and working on the thing that eluded most bands. . .
an original sound. They had done all the usual venues around Dublin & had their set rehearsed blindfolded. But the effort to keep the line up together and constantly looking for gigs was too much and the band went their separate ways. During the mid nineties Keith got involved with several collaborations.
Notably with one of the musicians from BIR. He had moved to London and was working in recording studios over in the UK and back in Dublin. This gave them access to top studios to record their demos & backing tracks. Again more valuable recording experience gained and more importantly developing as a songwriter.
Towards the end of the decade he took a break from music for a few years ... " Looking back now I fell out of love with it , I wasn't enjoying it , my fire went out " ... By the time he felt that familiar urge to write again a lot had changed. Keith went back to basics learning the whole virtual studio software package.
He set up a home studio just outside the city centre around 2002/03. At the start his time was divided between producing demos for other artists and more collaborations. These projects ranged from Ambient & Electronica to Soul & Nu Jazz & some Jam Band & Indie stuff in between. From 2004/05 he started to write solo full time and it just kept going.
Over the last couple of years the songs have come together and Spring 2009 sees the release of his debut CD "Thin Skin" as well as download facilities set up. Although the music has a band feel to it , there is only Keith performing & recording the songs. He has been lucky enough to have had some great people come in on the Thin Skin project. Session musician Rama Block played accustic & electric guitars & vocalist Sallay Garnett sang lead on "Gone" & harmony on "Your Little Need".
