Ethan Keller is no stranger to the Milwaukee music scene. He has been playing music for over 20 years with various groups and touring as much as his schedule allows him, but he has always loved calling Milwaukee is home. Simply talk to Ethan and you'll be able to hear his passion for the city and high hopes for making Milwaukee a tighter music community.
His new cd is titled " Goin Down In History, Goin Down In Flames"¬†and is a continuation of his self-proclaimed Midwestern Americana R&B sound. Ethan's love for all kinds of music can be heard on the new cd, plus he's joined by some very talented musicians on his latest effort. Stellar blues harmonica player Jim Liban is just one of them.¬†
On today's Kramp Cast he plays a new song called Home Sweet Highway acoustic and we¬†talk about the first composition he created at the age of 9 years old that was modeled after a classic hip hop song. He has a wide range of music knowledge and loves talking about it.¬†Listen now and check out Ethan Keller's CD Release Show this Friday at 8pm¬†at Club Garibaldi¬†in Bay View.¬†

He may be Edie Brickell's drummer as well, but Matt Chamberlain is definitely Tori Amos's drummer. I've seen him on tour with her, and he is incredible. I believe he's on her live album, To Venus and Back.
