Strange New Day
Keith began playing guitar at the age of 9 and was performing with his parents** within a year on the local Utah circuit playing covers by artists such as Chuck Berry, CCR, The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones. After hearing Eddie Van Halen and Randy Rhoads, Keith devoted all of his spare time to the guitar and would often practice eight or more hours each day. Keith played in various cover bands during and after his high school years and eventually formed his own group. In the early 90's Keith moved to Colorado to play the Denver club scene. In 1993 he was recruited to play Sturgis, an annual 'bikers' convention in South Dakota, and returned in 1996 with the band Boss Blue as the opening act for The Jimmy Van Zant Group. Keith was hired as a studio musician for local Colorado artist Ceaser X in early 2000, and later that year entered and won the 'Prepare to Shred' contest hosted by guitar guru Marc Seal. In 2001 he began writing and recording instrumental guitar music, playing all of the supporting instruments in the project himself. Keith has volunteered his time and talents to local churches and non-profit organizations, playing multiple worship services and pastor's conventions along the front range and into Arizona. Keith has gained much recognition recently as a local Colorado favorite and featured performer at the Rocky Mountain Taste Of Spring (2005), The Big Event and Girlfriends Against Breast Cancer (2006), Jazz on the Plaza, J & R Graphics open house, 5280 Hypnotherapy Grand Opening, and Out of The Darkness walk (2007). In late 2007 Keith released his latest all original instrumental collection on CD, State of Grace. Individual tracks are available for download in .mp3 format from Keith's MySpace site. Keith currently resides in Littleton, Colorado where he actively composes new music from his indie studio at Strange New Day Productions.
