KexMusic.com is a website portfolio featuring the music & artwork of Damian J. Keckeisen…musician, producer, guitar player, artist, sound engineer. His songwriting and guitar skills make the sounds of Kilbourne, Cyan Daze, Pipe Down and various recording projects.
It all started with just a guitar bought with paper route money and a few years of partying in a garage band with his buds, Damian followed his passion to study music and sound engineering at the University of Wisconsin, then Musician’s Institute in LA, and a recording studio apprenticeship. In 2009 he traded in some bicycle wheels for a guitar cabinet and started up a band. He then built his own personal recording studio and started writing and producing music. These songs were developed and played live with Kilbourne and now featured here on KexMusic.com. Damian’s extensive live band experience has been shared with various line ups over the years, many memorable shows, from Milwaukee’s dive bars to a main stage at SXSW. Constantly creating music in the studio, Damian continues to write and record in his spectacular world record attempt.
Kilbourne’s Trial & Error was the first album fully produced and recorded by Damian. Critical acclaim…maybe not, but it kept the ideas and music flowing. This was later followed up by Kilbourne’s Live Jams and Chicken in my Pocket, two albums filled with hidden gems from the archives. The latest Kilbourne release is Road to Nowhere featuring a bunch of friends and musicians from Milwaukee.
Cyan Daze is Damian’s newest musical project. A new sound filled with emotional and powerful songs featuring friends and musicians throughout the journey. With the debut Cyan Daze album Arrival being released and a full new band in the works, it’s exciting to see what comes next. Cheers!
