featured track: "Do You Want To Be Friends"
And then there’s Keith Slettedahl. He is kind. He is gentle. He is self-deprecating, which is a good thing. Given the breathtaking amount of raw talent the man possesses, if he chose to brag there would be no end in sight, and yet it would all be justified.
Keith has racked up achievements. He was the songwriting force behind the band The 88, a group known for its glorious pop canon. Ray Davieshandpicked the quartet to open and back him for two international tours. The 88 also appeared on Conan, Jimmy Kimmel, Craig Ferguson, Carson Daly, and Lopez Tonight.
Keith wrote the theme for the NBC hit show Community. His skills with hooks and melodies have landed him commercial work for Target, Sears, Crate & Barrel and Dr Pepper, to name but a few.
Now Keith has released his first solo EP, a five-song love letter to the craft of great songwriting. Get it while it’s hot.
