The Keith story begins in 2002 with four lads from four different parts of England (Essex, Ealing, Shrewsbury and Leeds) studying for a music production degree at The University of Manchester. Posted to a remote satellite of said institution, they found themselves in the not-so-hip northern town of Warrington, certainly more famous for it's rugby than it's tunes! It's here lead singer Oli Bayston met guitarist/vocalist Mark Nicholls, bassist John Waddington & the aforementioned drummer Johnny Winbolt-Lewis. The foursome gravitated towards each other's musical obsessions and began whiling away long nights with mind-bending narcotics and never-ending jam sessions. They were soon onto something…

The band decamped to Manchester upon completing their course in 2004, where they built up a loyal local following. They then embarked on a series of tours and gigs, supporting acts as diverse as SĂ©bastien Tellier and The Ataris. The band have now released an album, "The Red Thread", and continue to tour. Recommended!
