Britain has a happy knack of producing gently quirky, lyrical and narrative song-writing – think of Ray Davies, the Beatles, Stackridge, Squeeze – and this album represents a new addition to this tradition. The secret of this album lies in its tasteful use of instrumentation, lilting melodies and warm, very English vocals.
Martin Price, FATEA Magazine

“Well, we’re the lucky ones at Mister Keith’s album launch. Beautiful songs. Quintessentially British.”

‘The Confession’ is blissfully inviting, euphoniously floating and rich in sound.
Nessi Holt, Music Blogger

“The range of techniques and song-writing traits are so vast that I think we may simply have to leave it as a moment in time where someone did something different with the same tools we’ve known for a long time. It’s like the past meeting the present in a calm storm. “Record of Wrongs” is a strong work that is incredibly versatile using a wide range of emotions and styles. An intense and beautiful journey.”

Brisk and captivating vocal expressivity. An atmospheric, picturesque and vibrant sonority of sound.

I’m torn between sitting and absorbing all the arrangement details – lush and playful strings, keys, brass and woodwind, toe tapping, inventive percussion and soaring vocals – and dancing around the room.
Heather Hind (Songwriter)

Brody Swain, BBC Introducing, Cov & Warks

Lovely, melancholic, complex chemistry to the track Keith, MORE!
