Jeremy Keen, guitarist/singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, is adept at finding inspiration in the most uninspiring and mundane of daily activities, usually, resulting in songs steeped in escapism, of love lost, or of drinking beer in the basement. Many times, it is all three at once. His original music draws inspiration from the likes of Neil Young, The Beatles, Sufjan Stevens, Wilco, and The Byrds.
Originally from Houston, he spent his college years and beyond bumming around the Chicago scene playing in bands and getting into fights. Since 1999, he’s toured the states, recorded and self-released two solo projects “False Starts” (2007) and “Lock and Key” (2010) with his friends and his bands have opened for such notable acts as Sleeping at Last, Sarah and Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek), Buddy Guy, Old 97s, and Switchfoot.
For the last decade or so, Jeremy has been playing regularly in Atlanta music scene. He’s played hundreds of shows at breweries, bars, restaurants, wineries, farmers markets, festivals both as a solo artist and fronting a few bands.
