Keeton Coffman is at his core, a songwriter. Evoking the melodic styles and passionate lyricism of Amos Lee, David Gray, and Bruce Springsteen, Coffman’s songs capture your imagination while weaving a melody into your very soul.
The new EP release The Ghost, shows songwriter Keeton Coffman’s unique ability to cross genres seamlessly in this powerful group of radio friendly indie pop songs.
After performing and writing for The 71’s, who found success in TV placements, were featured on news specials in Houston, and named best new band in Houston, Keeton went his own direction as a solo artist in
2013 and has been performing live and writing full time ever since.
The Ghost EP features an array of brilliant songwriting and unique structure and arrangement.
The first single “The Letter” is a catchy, up beat indie folk pop song that tells a classic love story.
The songwriter explains the questions posed by the song. “What does True Love do in the face of betrayal? What does True Love say to the now helpless heart that once wounded it? How far will True Love go to restore what once was?”
Another single “The Hunted And The Hunter “, is a fully orchestrated track with beautiful and addictive piano sections and a film score-like atmosphere to it.
“I wrote The Hunted And The Hunter as an allegory about my relationship (still in progress, no doubt) with my Creator. From a distance the concept of God terrifies me – it’s difficult to trust what you don’t fully know. And yet, as I follow His whispers His presence feels more like rain, and less like thunder. ” says Keeton of the piece.
Though each song is disguised as a pop tune with catchy melody, elaborate yet accessible instrumentation, and Keeton’s heartfelt and authentic vocal presentation… The songs are actually character portraits. Paintings of people caught in the middle of critical life experiences. Keeton Coffman consistently describes his writing process as initially journeying out to create fictional characters, and yet in hindsight, finding himself in each one.
In the last two years, Keeton has performed live in venues across Houston with such artists as Jessie Ware, William Beckett, Ellis Paul, David Ramirez, Daley, and Andrew Ripp. He will be performing with “The Voice” finalist, Nicholas David in February 2015.
