Keith and his partner Steve Karas have worked with some of the biggest artists and labels, including Paul McCartney, Black Sabbath, Barry White, Aerosmith, Arista, Mammoth and Interscope.
They have also done work for some of the industry’s largest events such as the Austin City Limits Music Festival and The CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival, which is took place this week in New York. We caught up with Keith as CMJ winds down.
