An upcoming Canadian singer/songwriter with a folk-pop flavour, Keats Conlon takes after her poet namesake, painting pictures in thin air and spilling her heart to any audience she encounters.

She has lived and played in multiple cities across Canada, recently released her FACTOR funded EP “Pastel Portraits”, and has collaborated in bands and projects with a variety of talented Canadian artists.

Alternately sweet and devastating, delicate and playful, prepare for visceral songs that you won’t want to end.
