Keith Watson is a musician living in the western Philadelphia suburbs. Keith began his musical journey at the age of eight when he was given his first guitar. His early influences would become southern rock, blues and jazz rock\fusion. Keith formed his first band by the age of nine and has been a member of various bands almost continuously ever since. Concurrent with his music interests, he also developed an interest in woodworking and electronics and has worked professionally in those fields. The natural outcome of these interests has lead to the construction of much of the instruments and electronics that contribute to his music.
Keith wrote his first song almost concurrent with receiving his first guitar, but the advent of affordable computer based production has re-instilled an intense desire to write and record. He now wears the many hats of all the various disciplines required to get a musical production out of the mind and studio and onto the street as a finished song.
Ken Lamb is a Lyricist/Drummer residing in West Chester Pennsylvania. He began his percussive journey at age ten, taking rudimental snare drum lessons that he later applied to the drum kit, creating his own unique drumming style. He spent his formative years absorbing the cultural and musical energy of a tumultuous era, which is reflected in lyrics comprised of tragedy, madness, and the elusive search for love and human dignity.
Keith and Ken first met when Ken was asked to play drums in a hard driving blues band shortly following high school. This was the band that they both cut their teeth in and developed the relationship that would lead to co writing much of the material on this site many years later. Ken’s interest in writing lyrics combined with Keith’s interests in songwriting and production has spawned a steady stream of new tunes that would not have occurred without the partnership. In addition to their writing and recording venture, Ken and Keith are members of the blues rock band Fuel Leak.
