You would be hard pushed not to like these guys, a must have for any collection.
Ashbury Keys is a Texas-based alternative rock band centered around brothers David and Darwin Keys. David Keys acts as the band’s principal songwriter, lead vocalist and guitarist. Darwin Keys provides stand-up (!) drums and vocals. Bassist and vocalist Bill Walter rounds out the band’s core line-up. With a premium placed on strong melodies, Ashbury Keys combines the sounds of such influences as the Beatles, Radiohead, Coldplay and the Smiths to produce its own “Brit-Tex” brand of rock that has garnered critical comparisons to bands like the Foo Fighters, Gaslight Anthem, All-American Rejects, Weezer and the Cure.
The band’s catalog contains three full-length CD releases: Ashbury Keys, Dancers and Growing Up and two EPs (Wake Up and Do You Know Who You Are). The releases resulted in multiple nominations for Best Alternative Rock Band by the Houston Press, performances on nationally syndicated television shows, song placements in MTV’s The Hills and Degrassi, featured tracks on industry websites such as kings of A&R and notlame.com, and significant airplay on college and internet radio. The band has provided live showcase and conference performances in venues from Los Angeles to Chicago to Austin, and shows supporting acts such as Paper Route, Oleander, Evan Dando, the Deftones, Splendor, Blue October, Bob Schneider, and the Subways. In 2013 Ashbury Keys completed its second year of successful shows in the United Kingdom, playing shows in London, Liverpool and Manchester. The band will be playing additional shows later this year in Austin and New York City.
Ashbury Keys’ most recent release is the 2014 EP titled Do You Know Who You Are released physically on CD and vinyl and digital download on September 5th 2014. Recorded at Resonate Studio in Austin, Texas; engineered and produced by Louie Lino of Nada Surf and Matt Pond PA acclaim; mixed by Kevin Butler and mastered by Bob Boyd the EP provides yet another sample of the superb melodic rock of Ashbury Keys.
