Über Tommy Keene
Tommy Keene's name is highly revered within Power Pop circles, as the Maryland native has been releasing melodic, jangly guitar pop since the early '80s. And while we all know there's a fine line between "rock legend" and "cult figure," there is no doubt that Keene is one of America's greatest, unheralded songwriters. With choirboy vocals that complement irresistible pop hooks perfectly, Keene's songs have an air of simplicity that draws listeners in with honey-glazed sweetness, while sharp, intelligent lyrics and rousing choruses hold your attention. Commercial stardom may elude Tommy Keene, but to many, he's already a star of immeasurable brilliance.
