On his upcoming release “Game Bird”, Chet O’Keefe’s voice is at once old as the hills and young as spring grass, a friendly neighbor’s call like John Prine’s or Waylon Jennings’.
As most great singer-songwriters do, Chet eventually landed in Nashville, playing at Brown’s Diner as often as not, which is where Nanci Griffith heard him and hooked him up with her guitarist and producer Thomm Jutz. The Gibson Brothers heard his haunting “Ring The Bell” and took it as the single and title track to their latest release.
Chet’s sound evokes the finest Merle Haggard dance-hall moments on “Take Me Down To The Liquor Store” and the sound of the dark woods on the mysterious, minor-key “Game Bird”.
