To call Billy Keane a throwback would be redundant. Keane is a singer-songwriter who lives in Pittsfield, MA and was discovered by the Berkshires First Family of Music, Kim and James Taylor. Besides James, he counts Phil Ochs, Pete Seeger and Bob Dylan among his influences. Like his predecessors, Keane sings about things that are important to people: Freedom, love, and peace as well as other key issues in our time. Billy’s heart may be in the sixties, but his music is pure 21st Century. With his blend of folk and contemporary blues, Keane has built a solid following by playing clubs and bars throughout the Northeast and Mid Atlantic states. He has released two projects to date, an EP called Pine Street Sessions and an album with his band Billy Keane and the Misdemeanor Outlaws. His songs will touch your heart and make you think all at the same time. Make it a point to touch base with your past while you look into the future, listening to Billy Keane.
