theKey is the opposite of your typical rock band; university educated, classically trained, and fully capable of doing their own taxes! However, when you put them on stage you’ll get nothing less than a well produced rock concert stemming from endless hours of practice, which has spawned comparisons of theKey to artists like Coldplay and Matchbox 20.
Colorful layering, driving beats, catchy melodies, and thought-provoking lyrics come together to create the full, signature sound that defines the Macon-based pop/rock group, theKey. Their many musical influences, such as Coldplay, Keane, Matchbox20, and Lifehouse, are exemplified in a sound that embraces the modern music scene while adding its own flavor reminiscent of the late-90’s alternative era. This widely appealing sound has landed theKey opportunities to share the stage with many well-known artists.
theKey has previously shared the stage with:
We the Kings, The Maine, Cartel, Augustana, Shane & Shane, Bebo Norman, The Fold, The Wedding, Ocean is Theory, and Ohio Avenue
“We hope to challenge our listeners through everything we do, whether it be our music, lyrics, or even our actions. We want to encourage people to get out there and find out why they’ve been put in this world. You can’t spend your entire life in fear that you’ll make the wrong choice in regards to what you believe. In our opinion, there’s no stronger foundation in life than Jesus Christ. I know the world around us is broken: the economy is in a mess, pain and heartbreak are everywhere. I could spend hours on these topics, but that’s not our focus. I want to talk about you and me getting up and making a difference. This group is looking to make a difference ‘one chord at a time,’” concludes Scott.
