Based in Austin, TX, O'KEEFE is the solo project of Erin O'Keefe, co-founder of indie trio, The Succulents. Equal parts wry lyrics and lush vibes, O'KEEFE's debut record, 'Light Within,' contains elements of 1960's soul/r&b, pseudo-modern dream pop, Dylan-style storytelling, slow-burning protest anthems, and much more. Along with consistent dreamy tones throughout the record, what glues 'Light Within' into a single, cohesive piece are O’Keefe’s warm, hazy vocals, perfect for late nights and rainy days. Collaborators include Austin legends and heavyweights like Matt Long, Eli Southard, & Trent Pruitt (Roky Erickson,) Josh Fleischmann (Israel Nash,) Ben Gallaway & Braden Guess (The Lonesome Heroes,) Jonny 'Keys' Grossman (Uncle Lucius,) Randy Roberts (Doug Moreland & The Flying Armadillos,) Rosie Flores (Wanda Jackson, Asleep at the Wheel, Screamin' Sirens,) Colin Gilmore, Geoff Queen, Ben Bradshaw, Jimmy Milner, Eddie Dickerson, Mark Williams.
