Biography

There are multiple artists named Keith:

1. Keith (born James Barry Keefer)

Keith (born James Barry Keefer) was a U.S. vocalist and one-hit wonder. His first record deal with Columbia Records resulted in the 1966 single, “Caravan of Lonely Men” credited to Keith & the Admirations. Keith then moved to Mercury Records and released his solo debut, “Ain’t Gonna Lie.”

He is best remembered for the hit “98.6”.

His second LP, 1968’s “Out of Crank” failed to create public interest. The nadir came when U.S. Army officials nabbed him for draft evasion in the middle of a concert tour. He was inducted and stationed for a year in New Jersey. When he got out, Keith did some independent recording and joined Frank Zappa’s 1973 touring band.

Keith recorded one last album, for RCA Records, with no luck, and then left the music business until 1986, when an attempted comeback under his real name proved unsuccessful. He also set up A.I.R. Records and produced albums for several local bands. In the 1990s the singer moved into the television industry, although he continues to play live dates.

2. KEITH

Oli Bayston – Vocals, Keys,
John Waddington – Bass
Johnny Winbolt-Lewis - Drums
Mark Nicholls - Guitar

KEITH – Not one, but four lads from four parts of England (Essex, Ealing, Shrewsbury and Leeds) meeting in (Greater) Manchester on a music course. Four headstrong characters, with wildly different musical roots, these guys are keen for their ideas & instruments to complement each other & so a strong democracy of songs prevail.

    They've split up :( Gutted, their debut was one of the finest releases of 2006.

    I might have been a little hasty in my criticism there. Me and my big mouth. Vice And Virtue is a real grower. Still not as good as Red Thread though.

    Dissapointing new album, its got nothing on Red Thread. 'Lullaby', 'Lucid' and 'Up In The Clouds' are excellent but the likes of 'Don't Want To Be Apart' and 'With Me' really let it down.

    @hamdemon: It's a recommendation ;) Just ignore it, or remove the recommendation, and it should stop showing up. If not, just listen to one of their tracks.
