Live Fact is pleased to present Conrad Keely for a one night only solo show in Kuala Lumpur. Conrad Keely is a British-born, American musician, known primarily as the lead singer for the rock band...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead.
Keely released his debut solo album, Original Machines, on January 22, 2016 on Superball Music. Songs for the album were primarily written while traveling in Cambodia, but a few were written while on tour with And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, recording them in the back of the tour bus. On the sound of his first work without the band, Keely said that he was "given more freedom to explore other textures and stuff that I might not usually" while having "the liberty to create something that's outside of [Trail of Dead's] rock paradigm."
Keely is also an avid visual artist. He has commonly incorporated his drawings and paintings into Trail of Dead's and his solo album art, designing and illustrating most all of their albums.
Opening act for the night is our very own folk rokcer/singer-songwriter Azmyl Yunor. His works have ranged from folk-country singer-songwriter styles to experimental guitar improvisations to punk and indie-noise rock, solo and with various bands he has founded and recorded with.
Also on the bill is Zulhezan, better known as the guitarist and the quarter that makes up Dirgahayu — the math rock band that’s arguably one of the most talked about bands this year. Besides working hard on his band with recording and relentless touring, he managed to record an original soundtrack for a short film entitled Terbit 23 by director Taufiq Kamal, who was the grand prize winner of last year’s BMW Shorties for Rozita binti Roslan.
