Keeping Constant Motion (2010)

An acoustic collection of songs for and about the people I have been fortunate enough to know... An album that could not have been completed if constant motion were not kept.

Late December (2011)

In an effort to make "THE album" rather than just "an album," Keith enlisted the musical talents of a number of artists, with many taking time out of their own busy RPM Februarys to help out.

Letters (2012)

One guitar, one voice, one mic, one take. Live from the Landry basement.

Just as Well (2013)

What started as a simple singer/songwriter album with plenty of hooks grew into this fully arranged and produced album thanks to help from numerous RPM musicians

Objects in the Mirror (2014)

Back to basics. One voice. One guitar. Focus on the songwriting.

Space Is Big (2015)

Well, it was about time I brought in the real musical talent in the Landry Family... My daughters.

Apples Fall Far (2016)

Just a simple album. Only live acoustic guitar arrangements.

Collecting - The Zero Sled and Other Near Death Experiences (2017)

A handful of death-defying stories and songs inspired by them

BIOGRAPHY



Keith didn't pick up a guitar until he was twenty years old and his little sister taught him how to play "Hammer and a Nail" and "The Boxer." He never really took music seriously until he had kids, at which point Keith realized that he had a lot that he needed to say to them... The end result was the very sweet album "Reminder of Winter in April," a not-for-public-consumption collection of songs that he hopes will mean more and more to his little girls every day.

In the following years, he churned out follow up albums "The Trail" after a trip out to Rocky Mountain National Park and "Where I May Have Been," a delving into the stories of people he's known and places, well, that he may have been. While preparing to start recording on his next album, "Late December," that same little sister turned him on to the RPM Challenge.

Keith's fourth album, "Keeping Constant Motion," was written in January and February of 2010 and recorded (along with everyone else completing the challenge) entirely in the month of February.

Not realizing just how unmotivated he would be from March to December of 2010, Keith needed the commitment of the RPM Challenge to finally get around to recording "Late December," a playlist that by 2011 has changed and grown into the twelve-song album you will find here today.

In 2012, Keith took a good long look at his limited production skills and decided to strip it all down to the basics. The result: "Letters." One guitar, one voice, one mic, all live. Are there missed notes? Yes. Does he keep time perfectly? No. Is it Keith at his core? Yes.

Once again recharged to collaborate on a large-production album, Keith enlisted many of the brilliant artists here at the RPM Challenge to record "Just As Well."

Which brings us to 2014 and a return to Keith's original recording techniques of recording two tracks - one guitar and one vocal. It may be Keith at his purest.
