Scott Keeton Band

Artist Bio

Spanning boondock bars to Carnegie Hall, Scott Keeton has performed for proletariats and politicians, toured with the Black Crowes in the Ringos of Soul, signed developmental deals with Geffen Records, served as Bo Diddley's go-to guy, fronted The Deviants, released the album “100 Mile Blues” in 1999 on British based Blues label JSP Records, and backed Eric Idle on “Eric Idle Exploits The Songs Of Monty Python” (and eventually "Spamelot"), among many other notorious accomplishments. But it wasn’t until he began his work with experiential music performances for geriatric patients that Keeton discovered the true power of music. His first ever performance for people who weren’t drinking, screaming, or fighting - extended care patients - garnered the most sincere, cathartic response he had ever seen. As a result he returned to school and eventually earned a Master’s degree in psychology to give him more insight into this new application of his craft.

Today Scott Keeton is currently recording his tenth album. While still doing over 100 shows per year he now focuses more on his work in education and on his family. Associated with the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma, Scott now influences a new generation of musicians. As a college professor he uses his years of experience to help students get started in the music industry.
