What's Dan Keyes (Recover/Young Love) Up To Now?

Posted by: Jason Tate (05/02/12)
A new article on Dan Keyes (Recover/Young Love) talking about his experiences with the music industry and labels, and how he's a music publisher now -- can be found here.
From the ArticleThe music industry, however, was in the throes of dealing with plummeting sales and a business model that no longer worked, and things over at Island Def Jam had changed. “I came back, and Rob Stevenson had left; my whole team over there was pretty much gone,” Dan said. “So I was kind of dead in the water over there. The first record got a great push, and it did well and got me a lot of exposure and brought me to the first step of where I needed to be, but by the time I was ready to record the second, everybody at the label had gone.”

i saw them at Kilby Court in SLC. super small garage-like place. they played with Armor For Sleep and Say Anything.

i wish they'd release a new album or do a full tour... sounds like we're going to be waiting (again) for awhile (if ever)

i know this doesn't help, but these guys were so good on stage. i was lucky to live in texas where they played 10 shows a year.

yesssss!


saw Recover at the same tour with Armor For Sleep. super small venue, and bunch of people left after Armor For Sleep played, so Recover only played for like 20-30 people. oddly enough some of the stuff from that show is on Armor For Sleep's dvd.
