Straight No Chaser

CD Review – Keegan DeWitt

Two Hearts/Reluctance 7” single

Theory 8 Records

For someone who went to the Atlantic Theater Company Acting Conservatory in New York and studied under Academy Award-winning actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and director David Mamet, music isn’t the first thing you would think of when you think of Keegan DeWitt. Listening to this three track EP should change your mind, however. The dance-pop of “Two Hearts” is infectious and instantly gets in your head, a lot like Joe Salazar’s “She is Summer.” DeWitt also enlists the gorgeous vocals of Isaaca Byrd on “Reluctance” making this duet all but perfect. This two song teaser does exactly what it is supposed to; it makes you want to hear more. DeWitt is a singer/songwriter who should be blowing up the radio soon.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
