Keyan Keihani is a songwriter from the San Francisco Bay Area, CA. Keihani’s music is based on a sparse Americana backdrop and a penchant for performing alone. The songs are honest and delivered without any gimmicks or frills.
His self-financed debut album, Eastbound, was released in 2013 and provided the foundation for hundreds of shows and supporting opportunities for Jamestown Revival, Sturgill Simpson, William Elliott Whitmore and Jason Eady, to name a few. It peaked at #6 on Amazon’s Americana charts.
After a series of personal and emotional setbacks in 2014, Keihani felt emboldened to address topics of isolation, depression and crippling anxiety. The songs culminated into his follow-up release, Dark Saints, in 2015. Produced and engineered by Daniel Mendez, Dark Saints is presented as a stripped down collection of songs that are deceptively simple and haunting. No Depression referred to it as a “powerful record that is driven by Keihani’s unique, no frills voice that is park country, part folk, and most of all, sincere.”
In 2015-2016, Keihani provided support on several regional tours and was named a finalist for the Deli Magazine’s “Emerging Roots Artist of the Year.”
