Keller Williams Releases Album of Dead Covers Played on KEYS

One-man-band Keller Williams has released albums on which he plays guitar, bass and a variety of other instruments, but a new benefit album finds the Virginia native performing Grateful Dead covers strictly on piano. The simply-titled KEYS contains 10 Grateful Dead classics and is available now via iTunes. All proceeds from the album will benefit The Rex Foundation.

You can stream Keller’s version of Terrapin Station from KEYS…

Williams discusses the new release on his website, “It’s no secret I have an unhealthy fascination with the Grateful Dead. Whenever I sit down at the piano it seems the only thing that comes out are Jerry ballads.  Even though these songs are not all Jerry ballads, I have sort of made them that way.  The lyrics, although I’ve been singing them most of my adult life, are not 100% perfect. Like any other music I play, I’ve taken liberties.  All of the proceeds from the sale of these songs goes to support the Rex Foundation, which was started by the Grateful Dead, in the 80′s, so you can feel good about that!”

Here’s the tracklist for Keller Williams’ KEYS…

1. He’s Gone
2. Can’t Come Down
3. Terrapin Station
4. Attics Of My Life
5. Althea
6. Brokedown Palace
