Description

This Salt Lake City "musical powerhouse" is known for sourcing energies reminiscent of the bluesy rawness of Janis Joplin and the fire of Jimi Hendrix. Synergizing that old soul vibe with new school sounds, described by Katie Bain as "blistering." Having been "struck by her talent, stage presence, and refreshing candor." - Insomniac: Best of Electric Forest

Currently focused on two main projects, Gemini Mind, a full electric solo live looping show producing big sounds, ripping guitar solos, body buzzing synth bass, and drum pad with dynamic vocals and lyrics that captivate the hearts and minds of people everywhere.

Talia Keys & The Love is a foot-stomping, jaw-dropping soul-funk-rock n’ roll heavy hitting five-member band. Having dropped their first album, We're Here on 4/20/2018, they're currently back in the studio tracking a new album for your earholes!

TK & The Love was organically created with the release of TK's first full-length solo album, Fool's Gold (July 2015). Tracking a majority of it herself, Talia invited some of Salt Lake area's finest to recreate it live. Including Dave Brogan (ALO) on drums and Ryan Conger (Joe McQueen Quartet) on keys, shortly after adding Josh Olsen on bass and Lisa Giacoletto on backing vocals.

You can find them playing festivals and venues, with music ranging from all original sets to full-blown tribute shows. In addition to performing, Talia writes, produces, and records all original material, totaling four albums so far.

As an active member in her community, Talia graciously accepted the role of Music Director for the non-profit organization Rock Camp SLC - An empowerment camp for Girls, Transgender, and Gender Expansive youth. She is very excited for this next season, having grown from the first year with 40 campers to now 120 + new rock n' rollers each summer! 2020 would have marked Salt Lake's third annual adult rock camp Slay Lake City, however, because of Covid, Slay At Home was created. Our first ever virtual Rock Camp that is open to ALL genders, creating Family Bands, Covid Bubble Bands, and Physically Distant Bands. Check out our free six-week course on our YouTube channel, Rock Camp SLC.

Women Who Rock is a new music series Talia curated with local fave KRCL 90.9fm presenting the showcase. Inspired by the Women Who Rock segment on the mid-day show with Eugenie Hero Jaffe, this series spotlights women in music by promoting and featuring female-fronted bands releasing original music. This series has been promoted at The State Room, The Depot, and all programming at the 2019 Utah Arts Festival. Stay tuned for more Women Who Rock.

Having been off work during the Covid quarantine, being invited to be a radio DJ on RCL 90.9fm, was something to look forward to. Starting 11/1/2020 you can tune in to the NEW radio show - We're Here with Talia Keys every Saturday night at midnight - 2am (MDT). All genders and all your favorite genres!

Native to SLC, TK is proud to be featured as "a new face" for their re-branding campaign, SKI CITY. Licensing her original song "Me", introducing the campaign as well as singing, playing guitars and drums throughout the commercial. You may have seen it previewing for Warren Miller's 2016 - Here, There and Every Where, online winter sporting events, and select cable networks to name a few. Skiing from the age of six and playing music from the age of nine, it felt like a good fit.

Advocating for human rights Talia uses her music to convey a message of growth, awareness, and love. Promoting compassion and respect for our Earth and one another. "Music is very healing. If I can inspire just one person a show, I feel I am doing something right!" - Talia
