Long considered one of the most unique and prolific performers in all of rock, the Fredericksburg, Virginia native is known for flying by the seat of his pants on stage, utilizing an unorthodox approach that centers around an Echoplex Digital Pro looping unit, which allows Keller to alternate between several instruments on stage. For Keller Williams’ latest studio release, ODD (August 2009 / SCI Fidelity Records), Keller covers an impressive amount of stylistic ground – everything from the ‘off-the-wall’ ("Day at the Office") to piano-based lounge music ("Warning"), and even a tribute to legendary afrobeat musician Fela Kuti ("Song for Fela"). And somehow, the singer/multi-instrumentalist ties it all together into a unified sound/approach – that is unmistakably Keller.
