Keith Anderson was born on January 12,1968, in Miami, Oklahoma. After graduating from high school, he attended Oklahoma State University where he got a degree in engineering. He also played baseball during his college years, and was approached by the Kansas City Royals. After a shoulder injury ended his baseball career, Anderson tried body building and placed second in the Mr. Oklahoma competition.
After graduating, he accepted a position with an engineering firm in Dallas, Texas. A year and a half later, he resigned to pursue a career in music. He attended clubs at night, began writing songs, and began learning guitar from his brother, Brian.
Before signing to a record deal, Anderson was one of several co-writers on “Beer Run (B Double E Double Are You In?)”, a duet by Garth Brooks and George Jones, released in late 2001. Anderson was signed as a recording artist in 2004. His debut single “Pickin Wildflowers” was released that year, as the lead track from his debut album Three Cord Country, and American Rock and Roll.
FORGOTTEN BY FRIDAY
Forgotten by Friday was fully formed in the summer of 2010. They are a high-energy Alt Country/Rock band out of Southern Connecticut. They have made a reputation as one of the best original bands in New England by playing the top-tier venues from Vermont to Nashville. They bring incredible musicianship with solid
songwriting and a fun interactive stage show to their live performances.
Jessica Lynn is from Yorktown, N.Y. She began performing at the early age of 4. She eventually learned how to play the piano, guitar and drums. It wasn’t just music that interested her, though; she also performed Community Theater with Yorktown Stage and was active in her middle and high schools’ drama clubs.
She formed her first band at 14, called A Few 2 Many. Though performing was always her passion, Lynn, knew she would need an alternative, so she attended PACE University, earning a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and a master’s in special education.
Now, when she’s not on stage, Lynn is in front of an entirely different kind of audience — substitute teaching at Lakeland High School, the school from which she graduated in 2008. Her story was recently featured on the CBS Nightly News.
