If you’ve never heard of Doug Keith but think you’ve seen him somewhere, it’s probably because you have. Although he’s an accomplished solo artist—his first full-length album, Here’s To Outliving Me, was an NPR and Sirius XM favorite—he’s spent much of his musical career on the sidelines supporting other musicians. His first touring gig, playing bass for San Francisco-based punk band The Gods Hate Kansas, started his lifelong love of playing live and touring. After the band broke up Keith moved to New York City, lending his guitar and bass skills to various bands all the while pursuing his own music, described by NPR as “…richly textured, backed by sweet harmonies and beautifully layered instrumentation.” Although happily married and busy touring solo, he wanted to tour and collaborate with others again. Enter singer/songwriter Sharon Van Etten.
