Keaton Simons performed "Beautiful Pain" On Ellen and we almost didn't recognize him!
Keaton chopped of his long locks! It didn't hurt his performance in the least obviously.
Keaton performed alongside his full band, which features Robin Dimaggio (drums), Darwin Johnson (bass), and Scheila Gonzalez (keys, backing vocals).
Keaton also recently performed a show at New York City's Webster Hall as well as Teaneck, NJ that featured appearances from friends Jason Castro (former American Idol contestant) and Ryan Cabrera.
Diagnosis: Someone to keep an eye on....
Keaton Simons has just released his new album, "Beautiful Pain". The album was co-produced by Mikal Blue (Colbie Caillat, One Republic) and mastered by Gavin Lurssen of Lurssen Mastering. The album features co-writes with friends and peers Jason Mraz, Jason Reeves, and Glen Phillips.
The L.A. Times says Simons is “a triple threat.” He captivates audiences with an authentic voice, compelling and soul-baring songs, and a true command of both acoustic and electric guitars in every genre.
Earlier this month Keaton premiered the visually gorgeous video for current single "Beautiful Pain." The video was directed by Nick Spanos and executive produced by long time friend, and star of the Showtime series Californication, David Duchovny.
"This song has tremendous personal meaning to me. I wanted to show the extraordinary side of real, everyday people, and illustrate that love is worth fighting for,"
I dig the song and the video concept. Hope you guys enjoy it!-DocFB
Diagnosis: Beautiful...pain or not....
