Keshav Singh

Keshav Singh is an 18 year old jazz guitarist and composer from Santa Cruz, California. In April 2008 he released his first full-length album of six original compositions and one arrangement. The album features five other young jazz musicians from Santa Cruz, including the prodigious Le Boeuf brothers.

Keshav's music draws influence both from classic sources such as Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Charles Mingus, and from younger artists such as Pat Metheny, Joshua Redman, and Kurt Rosenwinkel. His compositions are characterized by shifting time signatures, complex rhythms and unusual harmonies.

Recently, Keshav was one of the youngest winners of the prestigious ASCAP Young Jazz Composer Award for his composition “Into The Maze”.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
