After helming the uncontrollably funky Soul Track Mind out of Austin from 2008 to 2016 and sharing performance bills with such legends as Enrique Iglesias, Bing Crosby and Erykah Badu, frontman Donovan Keith has spent the past few years cultivating his solo act. Everything that made Soul Track Mind a hit—the voice, the energy, the showmanship, the moves—is ever present. He’s kept the music coming with a stream of singles and a five-song EP, Sweet Lies, released this year. The best way to experience Keith’s music remains in a live performance, where his passion and frenetic energy are contagious.

See him live at Still Austin Whiskey on March 18 for Texas Music’s annual Bands to Watch event.
