About Matt Keen

“My name is Matt Keen and I am a singer/songwriter from Chicago, IL. I would fancy myself an eclectic with regards to my music and can’t specifically label myself into any particular genre. However, I play rock, folk, gospel, R&B, and the blues. I love to stay limitless regarding the possibilities of tunes I can share when playing in a live setting. I’ve had a number of great experiences at a wide variety of venues throughout my career. I have played at The Chicago Theatre, The Sandpoint Idaho Music Festival, The Marblehead, MA Music Festival, The Bluebird at Indiana University, and a wide array of clubs and bars all around the Midwest. A number of venues a bit less prestigious but none the less great! I am all about big crowds but am still enamored with intimate audiences, and play at listening room venues as well, such as, Di Luna’s, Sandpoint, ID. I can connect with 50 people just as seamlessly as I can with 5,000 and it is a serious strong suite of mine which keeps my fans intrigued and my non-fans wanting to become ones! If I am traveling outside of Chicago and it is not within driving distance (250 miles or less) I will need someone working sound at the venue to ensure the quality of the performance from a listening perspective. Within driving distance if necessary I possess a quaint and effective SHS Audio P.A that will comfortably power a performance for around 400 people. I currently don’t have any sort of light show but can stimulate a crowd regardless of antics and it’s something I pride myself on. Dependent on the venues location I can ensure a varied range of attendance. However, I always expect that if I make the venue money I am making myself money and so my drive to bring an audience is always high.”
