Home-grown blues wonder Keith Hallett’s howlin’, growlin’ vocals and soulful, impressive guitar licks and slides have made him a staple of the East Coast blues community. After winning the 2007 CBC Galaxie Rising Star Award at Harvest, Keith released debut album Bear With Me, before setting out for Memphis and the International Blues Challenge the following year. He and his band hit the road running and never looked back, sharing stages and bills with blues greats such as Junior Watson, Buddy Guy and Sonny Landreth. Sophomore record Hell West & Crooked, released in 2015, showcases Keith’s growth as an artist who’s carved out his own remarkably unique old timey blues style.
