Talia Keys is a genre crossing multi-instrumental "musical powerhouse"(1) bringing you her brand of Soul-Funk-Rock N' Roll. Infusing unique vocal stylings with a storytelling flow, sourcing energies largely compared to the bluesy rawness of Janis Joplin and the fire of Jimi Hendrix. Synergizing that old soul vibe to new school sounds, best described by Katie Bain as "blistering." Having been "struck by her talent, stage presence and refreshing candor." - Insomniac: 2014 Best of Electric Forest.
As a Salt Lake City native she keeps herself busy playing regionally since 2010 and touring nationally for the past four years with her solo project Gemini Mind. Talia Keys & The Love have been playing shows together for the last two years. From music festivals to music venues, original music to full blown tribute shows, TK & The Love are high energy, engaging and unique! Creating music you can dance to and feel. The Love formed with the release of Talia's first full length solo album, Fool's Gold (July 2015). Tracking a majority of the album herself she invited some of Salt Lake area's finest to recreate it live. Including Dave Brogan (ALO) on drums and Ryan Conger (Joe McQueen Quartet) on keys, shortly after adding Josh Olsen on bass and Lisa Giacoletto on guest backing vocals.
Talia is proud to be featured as "a new face" for Salt Lake City's re-branding campaign, SKI CITY. Licensing her original song "Me", introducing the campaign as well as singing, playing guitars and drums through out their commercial. You may have seen it previewing for Warren Miller's 2016 - Here, There and Every Where, on-line winter sporting events and select cable networks, to name a few. Skiing from the age of six and playing music from the age of nine, it felt like a good fit.
Most recently Talia has accepted the roll of Music Director for Rock N' Roll Camp For Girls SLC and is very excited to return for their third year. Talia is also presenting a new music series with KRCL - Women Who Rock, spotlighting women in music. TK & The Love will headline Vol.1, 2 and 3 featuring local female fronted bands as support. More info on the next installments TBA as well as new singles and a new album from The Love to be released later this year.
Advocating for human rights Talia uses her music to convey a message of growth, awareness and love. Promoting compassion and respect for our Earth and one another. "Music is very healing. If I can inspire just one person a show, I feel I am doing something right!" - Talia
