Introducing: Keegan DeWitt

From the sad simplicity and grace of his NY Times heralded film scores to the ornate and diverse string sections ringing throughout his brand new LP, Keegan DeWitt is someone who represents the human heart in all it's variations. A native son to Portland, Oregon, Keegan left home at 17 to study at the exclusive SUNY Purchase film conservatory in New York. It's here where he began developing his unique talent for translating the human experience into art.

Over the past three years Keegan has opened for the likes of Rhett Miller, M Ward, and Roman Candle all while scoring over ten films. His score for Quiet City helped earn the film an Independent Spirit Award nomination and was singled out in the New York Times review of the film. His latest release Islands pulls from literary and cinematic references to create layers steeped in moments, images, and scattered memories throughout.
