Keith Lykins’s music could best be compared to Michael Hedges, Tommy Emmanuel and Andy McKee. Keith is a fingerstyle guitarist, an instrumentalist, a one-man band, a singer-songwriter and a consummate entertainer. His playing uses every inch of the guitar, creating a visual as well as musical spectacle. His music encompasses aspects of music from the lurid, intoxicating deltas of the deep American South to the sultry driving beats found in the all-night coffee houses of Madrid.
From the delicate harmonies of the Irish Coast to the intricate melodies of the arid Sudan, Egypt’s Nile Valley and Afghani mountain ranges, he combines unexpected nuances from around the globe to create epic and novel experiences. He plays and sings a wide but cohesive mixture of cover and original music. From rock music cover tunes performed in a truly novel way to Arabic, Turkish, World Music, Blues and Acoustic Percussive Guitar on the 6 string guitar, 9 string drum guitar and fretless guitar, his music shines its way through unexpected gulfs and valleys of emotion.
