This Salt Lake City 'musical powerhouse' is known for sourcing energies largely compared to the bluesy rawness of Janis Joplin and the fire of Jimi Hendrix. Synergizing that old soul vibe with 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
Talia is currently focused on two main projects, Talia Keys & The Love, a heavy hitting five member band and Gemini Mind, a full electric solo live looping show that creates a big sound. In addition to performing, she writes, produces and records her original material, releasing four albums thus far.
Talia Keys & The Love are very pleased to announce their new album, We're Here - released April 20, 2018! The Love are high energy, engaging and unique! Creating music you can dance to and feel. Playing festivals and venues, with music ranging from all originals to full blown tribute shows!
TK & The Love was born out of the heavens with the release of TK's first full length solo album, Fool's Gold (July 2015). Tracking a majority of it herself, Talia 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 then last but not least, Lisa Giacoletto on backing vocals.
As an active member in her community Talia and has graciously accepted the roll of Music Director for Rock N' Roll Camp For Girls SLC. She is very excited for the forth season to start in June, 2019. This next year will also mark Salt Lake's second annual Rock camp for Womxn! Rock Camp welcomes transgender, non-binary, gender fluid campers and volunteers of all genders.
Women Who Rock is a new music series Talia is presenting with local radio station KRCL 90.9fm. Aiming to spotlight women in music by promoting and featuring female fronted bands releasing original music. 2018 WWR Vol. 4 @ The Depot SLC, Sep, 28. More info on the next installment TBA.
Native to SLC, TK is proud to be featured as "a new face" for their re-branding campaign, SKI CITY. Licensing her original song "Me", introducing the campaign as well as singing, playing guitars and drums through out the 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.
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
