Keith Settles is a name you may not instantly recognize but in terms of IVM past history, the name contains significant weight. Jess started out the IVM interview series on YouTube way back in mid 00’s and then when Keith Settles came aboard to help out, he created some of the finest video interviews we had up until that point. In fact, those are the last video interviews conducted by IVM (see YouTube page). Keith was frontman for a group out of So. Cal. called The Parousia and as of the last couple of years he has gone solo with some teeth clenching, honest tunes with an ep titled “Stories To Tell” set to drop on May 15th independently. Listen to the song “Four Years” below and find some other clips via his Instagram and Facebook pages (he is pretty active on there). It’s like the best elements of Dustin Kensrue, Chuck Ragan, The Lumineers, and Andy from Manchester Orchestra. Bitter, honest, with a dash of hope woven between frayed pages.
