Artist and Songwriter, Keith Ward has prided himself on wearing his musical heart on his sleeve. With his infectious piano driven pop-fare, reminiscent of Keane, Elton John, Billy Joel, and Gavin DeGraw, Ward writes music that reels the listener in and keeps them there.
On the tour road, Keith has assembled a who’s who of New York touring musicians to bring the album to life, including celebrated saxophonist Geoff Burke (Harry Connick Jr. Band), Grammy award winning drummer Jared Schonig, Guitarist Hendrik Helmer and Bassist Ian Stewart.
Ward’s growing and even sold-out crowds at venerable New York rooms such as Rockwood Music Hall prove that his recipe and persistence is working as his insightful brand of piano-pop connects with the eyes and ears of those who appreciate honesty in their musical tastes.
For his latest release, coming July 9th, Ward collaborated with Producer/Songwriter, Dan Omelio (Robopop/Maroon 5) on a new single entitled “Rocketfuel"
