Raised in oil country in West-Texas, Preacher Keenâs earliest musical influences
came from the church----not the traditional organist and choir kind but the all out, over-the-top,
hellfire and brimstone, emotionally charged hillbilly gospel kind served up in the fundamentalist
churches attended by Keenâs family. A trip with his mother to a black Baptist church for an
inter-denominational service when he was five years old exposed him to the soulful singing style
of another branch of the gospel tree, and it made an indelible impression. As a teenager he was
bombarded with the ubiquitous country and top forty that was played on the local radio stations
in Odessa, his hometown. A college friend in Lubbock turned him onto a record by Buddy Guy
and Junior Wells and he quickly developed a passion for the blues. The rock songs of his earlier
playing days quickly made way for more blues on the set list.
Keen moved from Lubbock to Ft.Worth and on to Austin searching for experience
and musical opportunity. In 1987 he began using Preacher as his performing name as a way of
acknowledging his musical heritage from the church, but clubs, not churches were his primary
venues. His new band, the Prodigal Sons fulfilled his dream of having a band that emphasized
classic blues and original material. His first recording, â20th Century Manâ, recorded in Dallas,
was a roots rock record. The song âAll Good Criminalsâ became a video and received
international exposure (especially the R rated version shown on the Playboy Channel!). The next
record, recorded in Austin was âPreachin the Bluesâ. It was primarily a blues record and it
generated more interest in the Texas born, blues-rockin, singer-songwriter. Now, with the new
record âHeal Yourself (Or Die with the Blues)â, Keenâs first three records have covered the
musical territory listed on his business card----blues, rhythm, and rock. Preacher Keen is busy
stirring the pot of musical influences with a new band and winning converts at every show----just
what you would expect of a soul man!
