Rock and roll with no apologies...

Keith Lenn is no stranger to the Rockland County, NY live music scene. He is one of the area's most recognizable bassists and guitarists, having played in several locally iconic bands since the mid-1980s. From punk and pop to rock and metal, Keith delivers the goods each and every night with his high energy stage presence and "no apologies" rock and roll attitude. Keith currently plays guitar for the original pop-rock band Faster Than Light, bass guitar for Losing Our Faculties, and bass guitar for ZERO. 

Mid-June Update 

Where to begin?

I've got a foot in the water on the new Faster Than Light CD... The first completed track, Someone I Know, is fully recorded, mixed and awaiting mastering. Blacker is just about mixed and sounds killer. It's a heavier version of the acoustic track Black from "Now We're Speaking French" and I really love the way it is turning out. Two other songs have basic tracks down and are awaiting vocals and other embellishments... 

The big news is that after 11 years I've decided to leave Losing Our Faculties. It was a great run for a local band, but after all that time the accumulations of little things begin to add up and it was just time to call it a day. It's nothing personal against anyone, just time.

Zero's gig at the Cloverleaf Inn on June 19th was an absolute BLAST! Great crowd, lots of singing and dancing, and on a personal note, such a better performance from me on bass than the private party we played a month ago... I hope Zero can get some more gigs going... I hear we are blowing up on Tic Toc!

More soon... ---Keith

Physical copies still available in the store, but supplies are running out...

Lots to tell... 

I haven't updated the website in a while so let me catch you up on everything Keith Lenn over the past weeks...

I've played a couple of actual live shows the past two weekends... back on May 1st I played a private party with Zero in Mahwah, New Jersey. We played three sets for a bunch of friends and I have to say, it is a ton of fun to play with Zero, but I was not at my best - not that I played poorly, but it was out first gig in a year and I just need more time learning the arrangements... the Zero guys like to make the songs their own, so there is a learning curve attached to that for me!

On Friday night, Losing Our Faculties played three blistering sets at Juan Murphy's in Poughkeepsie, New York. Juan Murphy's is one of our favorite places to play and we had a packed house! We debuted some new songs like Rock And Roll Band by Boston and Ramblin' Man by the Allman Brothers... on a personal note, I played great... as a band, we were only slightly rusty... but we really rocked hard all night!

LOF at Juan Murphy's - Poughkeepsie, NY 05/07/21

From a recording standpoint, I've put down basic tracks for two new Faster Than Light songs. One is an acoustic-type piece, very "Pearl Jam meets the Allman Brothers" while the other is a track called Dull which is the first song I wrote in the universe that has become Faster Than Light. I also started mixing a track called Someone I Know and I am toying with releasing that track very soon once a final mixing and mastering is complete.

Zero, FTL Update... 

Hey! Last night I recorded the bass track for "Without You" which is an amazing song that will appear on the new ZERO album! We are two tracks in and writing the rest of the record is happening as we speak! I also was able to do two fixes on the Faster Than Light song "Someone I Know" which will also appear on the new FTL CD! And I haven't even told you about the new LOWRY track I will be playing bass on!

Zero and Faster Than Light News 

Hey everyone! Just a quick update on some Zero and Faster Than Light stuff. I just received a mix of the new Zero song "Leave Me Alone" and it kicks ass! This track marks my recording debut with Zero and as soon as I get the go ahead to post the track, I will leave a link on the website! 

Additionally, I completed a Zoom interview with New Zealand's own James Brodie. James works with a lot of bands around the world to help promote and to fuel his own podcasts and Internet radio shows. I think James has a soft spot for Faster Than Light and our interview went really well. We stayed away from politics, talked music, FTL, and a few songs will also be featured in the hour-long radio slot. Again, when this goes live I will post a link for everyone to hear!

I expect to be resuming Zero and Faster Than Light recording this week. Updates will always be posted here!

New Zero In The Works! 

Happy New Year everyone!

I don't believe it is a secret that I am once again playing bass guitar with New York's own ZERO. There's a new album in the works and I've already laid down the bass for a track called "Leave Me Alone" which is a sleazy and bluesy rocker! "Without You" is the next track that I will be laying down bass on, and then I will be part of helping to write and record the rest of the new album! ZERO is hard rock band signed to Chaotic Records out of New Jersey and I am so psyched to be working with the band to create this new collection of music!

A shot of me playing with ZERO at the Pear River (NY) Hotel... this was from my first stint with the band!
