MUSIC MONDAY | 123 Go... Keaton Simons

MARCH 5 | Nothing compares to Keaton

Meet singer songwriter Keaton Simons. Popdust asked him to create a playlist for this week's MUSIC MONDAY. He is releasing his new EP 123 Go on Friday, March 9th. So we thought it would be appropriate to share some of his favorite tunes to get your Monday moving. While there were many factors that contributed to this being the right time for Simons to return the focus to making his own music, the opportunity to record in Nashville for the first time with producer, Marshall Altman was right at the top of that list.

He's performed his original music on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Last Call with Carson Daly, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Keaton's music is also regularly placed in feature films and TV shows including Sons of Anarchy, Private Practice, and NCIS. His last single, "When I Go," was featured in both the 2015 Summer Finale and 2016 Winter Mid Season Premiere of SUITS.

In 2015, Keaton supported Chris Cornell on his new album promo tour, playing guitar and on background vocals. A video accompanying Cornell on "Nothing Compares 2 U" at SiriusXM Lithium XM surpassed 32 million views and Keaton's solo was named 1 of 5 Top Guitar Solos of 2015 by Baeble Music.

He has even had success in the hip-hop world as a writer, musical director, singer, guitarist and bassist with notable acts such as Snoop Dogg, Gnarls Barkley, Tre Hardson of The Pharcyde, and underground hip-hop legend Medusa.
