(Male R&B/Soul/Pop Artist)
In a generation increasingly defined by cookie-cutter vocalists, mass-produced singles and formulaic lyrics, the music industry may yet have hopes of promoting real talent and rekindling the “soul” – as well as “real singing”— in the form of Keeyen Martin.
Raised as an only child in Charlotte, North Carolina, Keeyen’s journey as an artist began in the church, where he began singing publicly at the tender age of five (5). By 12, Keeyen had written his first song; and at the ripe age of 23, Keeyen Martin’s musical future looks more promising than ever! An adept singer, songwriter and pianist, Keeyen is the definition of a blossoming musician whose dedication to his craft is sure to pay off—very soon. His rare capacity for creating meaningful music, along with his flair for modernizing and mixing soul, pop and gospel influences allows him to shine bright in the sea of dronish, machine-made stars that comprise today’s industry. Keeyen’ s own mantra concerning music—“Just do you!”—reveals his refusal to be anything less than original, and at this point in his life, his musical mission to uplift, encourage and inspire his generation is bound to shake the foundations of popular music in the coming years.
Keeyen has experienced singing background for several established industry artists including Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child, Rueben Studdard, Peabo Bryson, Rudy Currence, Donnie McClurkin and more. He consistently works with numerous artists, musicians and vocalists within the Atlanta, GA area conducting voice lessons, production coaching, music education and publishing courses. His song catalogue boasts over 150 plus songs. Recently, Keeyen has performed in various venues from TBN networks, VH1 Save the Music, BET and ASCAP events. He has shared the stage with artists Roman Gian-Arthur, Isaac Carree, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Winans, Jennifer Holliday and more.
His new single “#DiveN2Luv” is buzzing, gaining airplay in Charlotte, NC, Atlanta, GA, Uniontown, AL and on multiple internet radio stations with rave reviews. So much new music is certainly in store for his growing fan base and audience of listeners. Keeyen Martin is not only busy becoming a star in his two hometowns but is also making strides to become a recognizable voice and face around the globe.
