Hi there, my name is Keats Conlon, nice to meet you!
"An upcoming singer/songwriter who takes after her poet namesake, Keats Conlon paints pictures in thin air and spills her heart to any audience she encounters."
I'm a 23 year old singer-songwriter born and raised in Windsor, Ontario Canada. My style has been described as folk, acoustic, alternative, pop, indie, and/or acoustic. I've been singing longer than I can remember and playing the guitar for about 8 years.
I was lucky enough to live near an arts high school, Walkerville Collegiate Institute, so I went there and entered into the vocal, guitar and drama programs. I met many talented people in my four years, teacher and peers alike, and feel so privileged to have had the chance to learn and work with them. I was about 14 years old when I started writing my own material.
I got my first taste of success when I submitted a song I wrote to a local musical compilation CD called "The W" at the age of 16. Ever since then I've been connecting to other local musicians and playing around as much as I can.
I was only pursuing my music part-time until I graduated from the University of Windsor with a Bachelor of Arts degree (specializing in Psychology with a Minor in Ancient Civilizations). With some secondary education under my belt, I decided to take some time off to exclusively focus on my music career. It was at this time that I moved to Toronto, where I lived for two years, meeting and playing with even more talented people, and honing my craft.
I have played at many venues in both Windsor and Toronto. Some of the Windsor venues I've played at include Milk, Taloola Cafe, Phog Lounge, and the Green Bean Cafe. Venues in Toronto that I have played at include The Central, The Cloak and Dagger, The Mod Club, and REVIVAL!.
I've released two CDs during my short career. The first I recorded myself and titled "Letters To Anyone". I recorded my second CD with Polaris Studios and called it "Like the Poet". You can check out "Like The Poet" through the links on the left side bar of this website, or go to my bandcamp here: http://keatsconlon.bandcamp.com/ to check out both albums.
After briefly moving back to Windsor for a few months, I've now moved out to Halifax for the summer to check out the music scene. Can't wait to jam with some east coasters!
I'll make sure to update this website with any new adventures and music, so stay tuned!
