Tim Keeley

Just a starving artist trying to express himself. I'm 5 albums deep and a single to go along with it, and I don't feel like I've lost momentum. Done everything from garage rock to ambient folk to dream pop, with progressive and classical elements doused heavily in psychedelic soundscapes and textures. Initially I felt my music had a somewhat indigo/violet hue to it, but I think I've moved into the red of late.

I'm influenced by virtually every genre in some way, and I like to attempt mixing elements in unpredictable ways. I pull from a library of instrumentation that is now nearly two-dozen in number, from all over the world. Most of my music has a trance-like angle to it, albeit it is considerably removed from what that term's connotation has taken on in the last couple decades.

"Some Call Me...Tim" is a totally acoustic affair drowned in effects and loops and samples, with a folk spine. "Modern Idyll" shifts an about-face into the wave and gothic territory, with a sociopolitical edge. "New Frontiers" seeks to bring some light into the darkness with its raw-and-ragged and road-trip-ready appeal. "Heartbeat" brings a matured and level-headed approach to themes that are both new and re-examined, while successfully following up 2016's "Modern Idyll". "Take Two" is a collection of 11 tracks from my first two records (2 previously unreleased) in a stripped-down, *mostly* acoustic folk-rocker. Close out the entourage with my only single, Oysterband's "The Lost and Found" covered with my own flair, and you have a solid musical foundation that seeks to stretch and explore itself for years to come.
