Blend the mellow tones of Norah Jones with the quirky pop of Feist and the fire of Ani DiFranco into a Chagall painting, and you get Keppie Coutts. Keppie's tunes are earthy, sophisticated, and direct - heart-squeezing, uplifting, and sometimes hilarious. Multi-Grammy award-winning artist John Mayer heard a new tune of Keppie’s (‘Waiting for the Avalanche’) and within a week, had taken it into the studio in Boston to record. Keppie had scored a private audience with Mayer as one of 12 young songwriters hand-selected to spend the week with Mayer in 2008.

Since arriving in Boston in 2005 (from her hometown of Sydney, Australia), she has won the praise of peers, audiences and mentors, all of which catapulted her within
5 short years to faculty in the Songwriting Department at Berklee in 2010. Relocating to LA in 2011, Keppie has a busy performance schedule, has recorded with Graham Ward (Paul McCartney, Pat Benetar, Jimmy Page), had her music appear on international internet radio, and had her music placed with an advertising campaign for an Australian company. She has performed extensively in the Northeast of the United States, including at the Bitter End and the Bowery Poetry Club in New York, as well almost every conceivable venue in Boston.

Born in Australia, Keppie started out spreading her words as poetry at local Sydney arts haunts and indie spaces. The immediate connection that she forms with an audience saw Keppie performing at some of Sydney’s best-known venues for live music, including international jazz-hub, The Basement as part of a selection of the city’s best songwriters.

To her surprise and delight, people often approach Keppie after shows, making excited comparisons to Norah Jones, Ani DiFranco, KT Tunstall, and Feist, though as one fan put it: “You sound like a million different women and like no one else”.

Keppie's 2012 EP release, 'MACHIN(e)', is available HERE.

Keppie’s 2009 release, ‘The Ordinary World’, is available on iTunes, Amazon and is distributed through CD Baby.

Keppie is also the founder and director of KC Song Studio: www.kcsongstudio.com
