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 the “real singing” of music 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 5. By 12, Keeyen had written his first song, and at the ripe age of 25, Keeyen Martin’s musical future looks more promising than ever.
An adept singer, songwriter, and pianist, with a fresh sound coined “Pop/soul/feel good music”, Keeyen is the definition of a blossoming musician whose dedication to his craft is sure to pay off—very soon.
Keeyen has experienced singing background for several industry artists such as Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child, Aloe Blacc, Rueben Studdard, Peabo Bryson, Aretha Franklin, Keke Wyatt, Donnie McClurkin and more.
He consistently works with many youths and young adult groups, aspiring musicians and vocalists within the Atlanta, GA area extending voice and music lessons.
