Keith A. Rea – singer/songwriter, instrumentalist
“With a sound that hovers somewhere between folksy observational story-telling, an old-fashioned country vibe and West Coast singer-songwriter fare, it's probably best to file him directly in the `Texas Troubadour' box ...Of course, that puts him in the company of songwriting greats such as Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark and Eric Taylor, so I'm sure he won't mind. ” ----Tony S. - Leicester Bangs
