Introducing

TALIA KEYS

Tal·i·a Keys 
noun

    a genre crossing multi-instrumental musical force of performing art, bringing you her brand of Soul-Funk-Rock N' Roll.

She/her, they/them

This Salt Lake City "musical powerhouse" is known for sourcing energies reminiscent 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, Gemini Mind, a full electric solo live looping show producing big sounds, ripping guitar solos, body buzzing synth bass and drum pad with dynamic vocals and lyrics that captivate the hearts and minds of people everywhere.

Talia Keys & The Love, a foot-stomping, jaw-dropping soul-funk-rock n’ roll heavy hitting five member band. Having dropped their first album, We're Here on 4/20/2018, they're currently back in the studio tracking a new album for your ear holes!

TK & The Love was organically created 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 Lisa Giacoletto on backing vocals. You can find them playing festivals and venues, with music ranging from all original sets to full blown tribute shows. In addition to performing in these two projects, Talia writes, produces and records all original material, totaling four albums so far.

As an active member in her community Talia and has graciously accepted the roll of Music Director for the non-profit organization Rock Camp SLC, an empowerment camp for Girls, Transgender and Gender Expansive youth. She is very excited for the fifth season, having grown from the first year with 40 campers to now 120 + new rock n' rollers each summer!
2020 will also mark Salt Lake's third annual adult rock camp Slay Lake City. Rock Camp welcomes volunteers and support crew of all genders.

Women Who Rock is a new music series Talia is curating with local radio station KRCL 90.9fm presenting the showcase. This series spotlights women in music by promoting and featuring female fronted bands releasing original music. This series has been promoted at The State Room, The Depot and all programming Friday at the 2019 Utah Arts Festival. Staytuned for more Women Who Rock.

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
