Keith Hampton is a classically trained musician who brings an art song sensibility to his acoustic pop music. His lyrics are both introspective and universal; his songs are intimate yet expansive. Originally from Wisconsin, Keith spent many years as part of the vibrant Boston folk scene, where he performed on the historic stages at Club Passim, Johnny D's, and The Center for Arts in Natick, and opened for renowned acts such as Cosy Sheridan and Deb Pasternak. He founded Brave Records to distribute his own recordings HOPEfire (2002), Chance & Change (2006), and Tyranena (2010). He also produced and performed as part of the Brave Records compilation Coming Home: Boston Song Collective (2004). The label continues to promote a diverse roster of songwriters, classical musicians, and world music artists.

Journeyman (2014) is Keith's 4th album. Inspired by Joni Mitchell's introspective road-trip-themed recording, Hejira (1976), Journeyman delivers stories of living, loving, leaving, and letting go.
