London native Keaton Henson has been writing music in secret since the age of twelve. While building a reputation as an artist and illustrator, Keaton was quietly amassing a plethora of introspective songs, not even sharing them with friends or family. His music, informed by isolation, deals with the themes of anxiety and lost love. While the openness of his lyrics can be somewhat unsettling, the simple melodies and frank delivery allow the listener the kind of insight that can make music so rewarding. For the past few months, his songs and homemade music videos have been circulating on the internet and gaining momentum, prompting him to create his first album.
Titled "Dear...", the album collects ten of his most personal songs which were
recorded in a makeshift studio in his own home. The title of the album directly addresses those
who are listening to it. This, combined with his rare public appearances
keep the album wholly personal to the listener, something that he feels
is missing from music today.
