James Keith is an unsigned artist from deep in the heart of the Texas hill country who grew up playing and singing music at his family's music venue. His first years of playing music were in his father's band "The River Rats" and there he gained a love for music early on and had the privilege of being groomed by seasoned performers. Over the time of his career he has branched out and shared the stage with many renowned artists, such as; Monte Montgomery (Guitar Player Magazine's 50 Greatest Players of All-Time), Augie Myers, Eric Gales, Papa Mali, Ponty Bone, Dana Cooper, Milkdrive, Joe King Carasco, Brennen Leigh + Noel Mckay, Billy Bright, Grammy Award Winners Max Baca and the Texmaniacs, and Grammy Lifetime achievement award winner Flaco Jimenez. In summer 2014 he was the frontman of touring band Nautical Nation and led them to an ATX Battle of the Bands win in which they competed against 30+ groups to gain the title. With the win came a management contract, an EP recorded at Yellow Dog studios (SoCo) and a 2 month summer release tour on the west coast.
TRANSATLANTIC FAMILY BAND
Formed in Brooklyn, New York in 2011, the band's name was born of founder member Ben Clarke's travels between New York & London, whilst writing and making music. It also serves as recognition that a band can be much like a family. TFB take influence from psychedelia, captured space sounds, the music of India, the East and rock n roll. Lyrics explore what we know about life, and what we don't. Expect relentless rhythms, eastern drones, waves of celestial bass, blankets of swirling guitars and luscious melodies to cut the haze.
THE BIG IDEA BAND
"A scrambled screen, a shadow that leads to a corridor where the floor sticks, stained by acid guitars.The leitmotiv of the Seven Rockies has enough to revive forgotten tracks, which resume form via haunted nights on a sofa to federate a quadruple And if you lose the thread of The Passion of Crime 3, you risk losing yourself on the streets of London, saturated with the worship in which Inspector Lawrence is taken."
