John Paul Keith & The One Four Fives

If somehow you were to find John Paul Keith appearing, Zelig-like, lurking in the background of old photos of Sun Studio recording sessions; he would certainly fit right in seamlessly with Carl, Elvis, Johnny, Roy, and Jerry Lee. Looking like a cross between Buddy Holly and Robin Gibb, he plays simple but effective guitar (the best kind) and hollers with the nasal whine of a young teddy boy John Lennon (OK – perhaps with a bit of the quiver in the voice of Georgie Harrison from time to time if you want to split Beatles hairs). Notwithstanding everything that’s happened since, if you still get a little tingle down the back of the neck whenever you hear the opening staccato yell of ‘Rave On’, then this is for you. John Paul Keith just missed out on success as a part of earlier combos a couple of times during his career, and was a member of one of Ryan Adams early backing bands too (he plays on Demolition), before practically giving up on music making after becoming frustrated with a mire of business-related shenanigans. But now he’s back with a debut solo-ish album, based in Memphis, and plugging away at gigs across the central states.
