About the ArtistBorn in Washington, DC, Keenan began his singing career at the tender age of 4 as a member of his church choir where he was given his now famous moniker- “KB” (Kwyer Boy). Working from his choir experience, he further honed his musical skills by emulating his idols- James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Prince, and the incomparable Michael Jackson…to name a few. By the time he was in junior high school, Keenan was developing harmonies, constructing melodies, and producing music tracks for him and friends. In 2002, he became a member of a Washington DC quartet called “295”- which produced current Capitol Records recording artist- J Holiday. Keenan left 295 in January 2004 and dove back into the music scene making a name for himself while performing at several talent showcases, local music festivals, and open-mic talent sessions where in May of 2004, he met a budding local music artist George McIvor. They became good friends, and formed the five-man band called “Dae’One”. With the help of their manager- Carlin N’Watts of 118 Management/November Entertainment Group, Keenan and his fellow band members created a serious buzz in the streets of Washington, DC, the city of New York, and in London, UK while promoting their self-titled debut album- “Dae’One”. The group disbanded in November 2005, thus moving Keenan onto the next phase of his career…a solo ambition. Throughout his extensive career, this singer, songwriter and producer has polished his music and broad entertainment skills in touring with and performing as a background singer for R&B superstar Ginuwine. He also performed with R&B female sensation Mya. Additionally Keenan has had the pleasure of opening up for R&B super-group Boyz II Men at the US Air Arena in Largo, Maryland, and International Boy-group B2K at the Anaheim Stadium in Anaheim, California. One of Keenan’s most crowning achievements was having the opportunity to lend his writing skills to Ginuwine, penning 3 songs on the singer’s current album “Back II Basics” released under Sony Records in November 2005. Keenan has been hard at work recording his major label debut at Cue Recording Studios in VA; 2 Ton Sounds, in New York; and the legendary Hit Factory in Miami- creating music masterpieces that will no doubt send him straight to the top of the charts. He is also currently involved in the production, and writing project on several songs and music compositions for his colleague EMI recording artist- Rumi; and Interscope recording artist- Jordyn Taylor, in addition to lending his production and writing skills for other various projects and up and coming independent artists in the Washington DC area.
