Keith Price joined the Music to My Ears Program with Artists in Healthcare in 2005, after studying with Larry Roy and Steve Kirby at the University of Manitoba.
‘Breakfast Of Champions’, Price’s debut album was released in the fall of ’09. The album was nominated for the TD Grand Prix Du Jazz and The Galaxie Rising Star awards at the 2010 Montreal International Jazz Festival. ’Gaia/Goya’, his sophomore recoding, written while traveling Canada, The U.S, and Europe, peaked for two weeks at #2 on the Canadian jazz radio charts (!earshot) and was runner-up for the 2013 Julian Award for Excellence for Emerging Canadian Artists. The 30 year-old guitarist released his third album in May of 2013; a mellow and introspective solo guitar recording of original compositions, tunes by Neil Young, The Weakerthans, Radiohead, and Bob Dylan.
Keith has enjoyed playing with Artists In Healthcare Manitoba since 2007.
