Keller first got attention years ago when, as part of San Francisco group Tommy Tutone, he co-wrote and performed “867-5309” (“Jenny Jenny”), a classic power pop tune that made 80’s radio so listenable.

After migrating to New York, he jumped the fence, running Philip Glass’s publishing company and taking over management of Glass’s career as director of Dunvagen Music.

In 2005, Keller returned to recording and performing and with a voice aged by time, whiskey and promises, he’s got the sound of someone who could have been Tom Petty’s therapist.

A cult figure in the music business, Keller’s gigs at New York’s Lakeside Lounge and The Rockwood Music Hall are legendary. If the best players in town weren’t on stage with him, they were in the audience, singing along, playing along, making the sort of noise that would get you locked up in a lesser town.

The 2021 release ‘By No Means’ produced by Mitchell Froom (Los Lobos, Crowded House, Randy Newman) and Backed by Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo on guitar, introduced Keller to European media and fans and was received with great enthusiasm, as was Spark & Flame, the album he recorded with New York friends.

‘Daylight’ is the second album of a trilogy that Keller and Froom agreed to work on. The third album is scheduled for 2025 and should also feature the stellar cast of musicians that make Keller’s music shine on ‘By No Means’ and ‘Daylight’.
