    Alternative Rock

    Gusti Escalante and Robbie Jackson met while moving in on the first day of college in the hills of Nashville. Both came with ambitions to write songs with new friends, but feared the heavy fog of Tennessee pop-country dreams might be all they would find. They quickly found Nashville had Far more to offer then any other city in America. By the end of that first night, they had written their first song together with whatever instruments happened to be unpacked - a floor tom and a guitar. They proceeded to write a song-a-day for a week, birthing a rare musical kinship - One that cut through the cloud of sterile songwriting, and formulated radio rock that had become used too. 
    Moving the songs from the bedroom to the stage, their creative synergy is tangible. A mutual appreciation for the charisma and melody of classic British artists such as David Bowie, Echo and the Bunnymen, and J.A.M.C.; as well as the nostalgia of classic Americana informs songwriting that is beyond their years. Gusti's earnest lyricism wrapped in a reverby haze of their guitar work, worms its way into your heart. 
    It didnt take long for their confident live show to catch on with locals, and soon Keeps found themselves opening for trending artists like Tennis, The Lighthouse & The Whaler, Alex Bleeker of Real Estate, Coin, Craft Spells, Horse Thief and more. Soon the touring bands they played with in Nashville started inviting them to new cities, and they found enthusiastic audiences dotted throughout the south and midwest.
    Now, with school finished or put aside, Gusti and Robbie are prepared to release their debut album 'Brief Spirit'. The record, self-produced over a handful of long nights, is filled with the strong melody and kaleidoscopic arrangements fans expect live. What listeners may not expect is a hint of the magical kinship so wonderfully realized in their live performance, and makes Keeps a truly special band.
