I discovered John Paul Keith because a guy on Goodreads saw I was from Memphis and asked for some local music recommendations - and he recommended John Paul Keith to me. So random!
John Paul Keith plays Memphis and the surrounding areas a lot, and I was embarrassed that I had never seen him before! I used to be all about local shows, but... life, man! He was playing at the Cossitt Library/the Fourth Bluff as part of Games on Front, so my family crossed our fingers that the rain would hold off and went down to check him out!
He was so good, and we spoke after and he named a few family-friendly venues he plays, so I'm excited to see him more, especially with his new albums out! So give John Paul Keith a listen if you haven't yet - he's definitely someone I'll recommend to random Goodreads messengers!
