ONE OF THE LONE STAR STATE'S BIGGEST STORYTELLERS

Robert Earl Keen arrives at the Grand 1894 Opera House in Galveston , TX , August 25, 2018

Texan born-and-bred Keen was one of the large contingent of talented songwriters who emerged in Texas in the 1980s and '90s, and struck an unusual balance between sensitive story-portraits ("Corpus Christi Bay") and raucous barroom style ("That Buckin' Song"). These two song types in Keen's early output were both characterised by a sarcastic and ironic sense of humor that strongly influenced other early practitioners of alternative country music.

Keen's 1993 release, A Bigger Piece Of Sky, gained wider acclaim, both amongst fans and critics. Over the next ten years, Keen would continue to write, record, perform and tour. Today, Keen is popular with traditional country music fans, folk music fans, the college radio crowd and alt-country fans.

He's collaborated with both Lyle Lovett who he counts as one of his friends, and a young Gillian Welch provided vocals on his 1994 release, Gringo Honeymoon. With kd lang and Nanci Griffith counted as his contemporaries, his last album Ready for Confetti in 2011 was cut with famed producer Lloyd Maines, and has been hailed as his "most inspired and focused project in nearly 20 years" (All Music).
