Official Press Biography
James Barry Keefer,
born in Philadelphia on May 17,1949, started his music career in the early
60's with his first band The Admirations, who recorded one single for
Columbia Records entitled "Caravan of Lonely Men." Soon after the recording
of "Caravan," he was discovered while performing at a school dance by radio
DJ Kal Rudman. Rudman introduced Keefer to Mercury Records' executive Jerry
Ross, who then signed him to the Mercury label and renamed him "Keith." He
recorded his first solo single "Ain't Gonna Lie," which placed in the US Top
40 charts. "98.6," Keith's best-known song and his biggest hit, was released
in January 1967, charting as a top ten single. Keith charted with two other
songs in 1967, "Tell Me To My Face" and "Daylight Savin Time."
