þ ABOUT THE ARTIST:

KATELL KEINEG PERFORMS MUSIC IN THE TRADITIONAL VEIN OF CELTIC MUSIC, REPLETE WITH THE MELANCHOLY, ANGST AND JOY SO TYPICAL OF THIS GENRE. BUT KEINEG'S MUSIC COMES WITH A POSITIVE FEMINIST TWIST.

ALTHOUGH KEINEG RESIDES IN AND WORKS OUT OF DUBLIN, SHE WAS ORIGINALLY BORN IN CELTIC BRITTANY. STILL, WALES SHAPED HER FORMATIVE YEARS AS SHE SPLIT TIME BETWEEN HER FATHER, THE FRENCH POET PAOL KEINEG,
AND HER MOTHER, PLAID CYMRU, A WELSH ACTIVIST WORKING FOR THE LIBERATION OF WALES FROM ENGLAND. THE EXPOSURE TO THESE NOT SO DIFFERENT CULTURES PROVIDE THE BACKGROUND TO HER MUSIC. LATER, KEINEG ATTENDED THE LONDON SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS AS A LAW STUDENT, BUT THE MUSES BECKONED, AND SHE OBEYED.

IN 1992, KEINEG RELEASED HER SINGLE, "HESTIA," ON THE INDEPENDENT LABEL, SOL. THE TITLE REFERS TO THE GREEK GODDESS OF THE HEARTH, HINTING AT THE SONG'S FEMINIST THEME. IN 1993, SHE SIGNED WITH ELEKTRA, FOR WHOM SHE RELEASED HER DEBUT ALBUM, O SEASON O CASTLES. (SHE LIFTED THIS TITLE IN HOMAGE TO THE POET, ARTHUR RIBAUD, WHO WROTE "O SEASONS, O CASTLES/WHAT SOUL IS WITHOUT SIN!"). FOR THIS PROJECT, KEINEG COLLABORATED WITH CO-PRODUCERS, JOHN HOLBROOK AND ERIC FELDMAN, WHILE FRED MAHER OVERSAW THE WHOLE PROJECT. AS A RESULT OF THE SUCCESS OF THIS ALBUM, KEINEG BEGAN TOURING WITH LILITH FAIR AND NATALIE MERCHANT. SHE WORKED WITH JOHN LEE HOOKER AND SANG ON AN IGGY POP ALBUM.

IN 1997, KEINEG RELEASED HER SECOND ALBUM, JET, FOR ELEKTRA/ASYLUM. SHE HAD BEEN ORIGINALLY SIGNED TO THIS LABEL BY NANCY JEFFRIES WHO RECOGNIZED IN KEINEG'S MELLIFLUOUS ALTO AN ABILITY TO EVOKE THE GAMUT OF EMOTIONAL RESPONSES IN AN AUDIENCE. IN ADDITION TO THE HAUNTING CELTIC INFLUENCES, KEINEG'S MUSIC ALSO DISPLAYS CHARACTERISTICS OF AFRICAN, ARABIC AND LATIN WHICH SHE BLENDS INTO A HARMONIOUS TAPESTRY, RESONATING WITH POSITIVE MESSAGES FOR WOMEN AND THEIR LIVES.

*THE BIOGRAPHY ABOVE WAS TAKEN FROM THE WALMART WEBSITE, HOWEVER IT SEEMS THAT THEY NO LONGER CARRY ANY OF KATELL’S RECORDINGS AND THUS THE PAGE IS NO LONGER UP AND CANNOT BE LINKED.*




þ WHAT THE CRITICS SAY...


“Like Doris Day swooning over Caesar in an opium daze.” - Esquire

“Her shy, allusive songs combine the world weary romanticism of Leonard Cohen with Tim Buckley's slurred incantations.” - Rolling Stone

“That there is to be no tidy pigeonhole for Keineg is underlined by her material - broad, colourful, emotive dramas full of unusual lyrical angles and startling (sometimes unpleasant) images... A striking and highly individual free spirit who most certainly merits your attention.” - Q

“Stamped with the spell-binding magic and sheer wizardry of someone in regular contact with the gods" - Hot Press

“Richard Thompson on Tamazepan.” - The Birmingham Post

“Katell Keineg's music satisfies on a much deeper level than does most popular rock and its life-affirming exuberance challenges the listener to look beyond the perimeters of his or her imagination" - The Irish Times

“The sort of singing that could force Nina Simone back into retirement.” - Details

“More Than a well-crafted piece of product, Jet will intoxicate anyone who still believes pop music can transcend dreary reality.” - Musician

“[“There You Go” is] the most emotionally devastating song I’ve heard all year.” -- Steve Erickson, Salon
