Sultry, soulful vocals with a raw blues, Americana, indie rock sound is what defines the music of talented singer/songwriter Keith Paine.
His latest LP "Speakeasy" -- which was self-produced and released on Nimble Records, includes edgy guitar, bad-ass beats, & lap steel -- mixed in with some old-school attitude, subtle acoustic guitar, and of course Keith's signature vocals. His influences include: Bob Marley, Billie Holiday, Jeff Buckley, Junior Wells, PJ Harvey, Bjork, & The Black Keys.
With appearances with his full band at Le Poisson Rouge for Trudie Styler's RAN benefit, Rockwood Music Hall and Central Park Summerstage, and the CMJ & SXSW Music Festivals -- Keith has established himself as an accomplished musician.
Keith Paine has got it all. The songs. The voice. A commanding stage presence with sexy style all his own & a musicality that hits you deep in your core.
He believes there are absolutely no limits but the ones we place on ourselves. It was his uncle who inspired this philosophy. A respected sportswriter in Boston, Keith’s uncle interviewed and wrote about many great athletes of his day. The man was also a quadriplegic who typed his own articles, one letter at a time. Inspired as a child by such an accomplished soul, Keith strives to live his life with the same fearlessness and determination. He embodies a true mind/body/spirit balance. He has a real love for what he does in all aspects of his life.
