THE LIES: A LONG STORY…SHORT
In early 2013 Ian Matthew Keller decided he had enough. He grew tired of the north, the woods and receiving no fruits for his labor, so he did what a lot of other people with similar sentiments do…he left. He embarked on a 6th month self-finding journey to the South and like many others who take similar plans of action, he returned to “the cave” he knows so well, but he did not return empty-handed. With plenty of time to reflect and indulge in life experience, Ian’s creativity was stimulated and it manifested itself through the blues. One member at a time, a band formed around the songs that seemingly went right from Ian’s head to his guitar- each member adding their own touch without taking away from the overall rawness or sincerity. They simply brought new life to the skeletons that were already there. 2 months later and after a steady rehearsal schedule, the quartet to be known as, The Lies, braved a snow storm and recorded the 7 songs on their debut EP, “Whatever.”
