Rick, I am quite an unconventional looper. My name is Keith M. Kelley. I'm a poet from Chicago. I've pasted my short bio below. I would love to do some shows out your way. I will be snail mailing you a CD on Monday. Peace. Artist's Bio: Keith M. Kelley is a poet, musician and audio artist. He has added the rhyme, reason and raw edge of the spoken word to the programming needs of: coffee houses, nightclubs, theaters, festivals, schools and national television and radio commercials. Keith is an exciting, engaging and natural performer with the ability to inspire audience members with a written line or an adlibbed phrase. Kelley's work as the founder and Artistic Director of his spoken word band, The Funky Wordsmyths, has earned much critical acclaim including: "Critic's Choice" in the Chicago Reader, "Best Poetry\Music Performer" in New City, a Chicago Music Award nomination and a "thank-you" in the credits of the feature film "love jones". His poetic sense of humor has earned him the reputation of being one "funny man" who tells great stories and always seems to find the metaphor in the current issues, trends and attitudes of the day. Keith M. Kelley has proven for almost a decade from New York City to San Francisco that he is not only "another" performer of the spoken word or music; he is truly an innovator of both!
