Region: Cape Breton
Genre: Folk, Pop, Roots, Singer-Songwriter

Keith Mullins has been playing music all his life. Raised in Cape Breton, NS where his family played all styles of music from the hits to jazz, from Cape Breton fiddling to country, music runs thick through his blood. Keith is a multiple award winning songwriter with a degree in classical music and has studied with master drummers in West Africa and Cuba. He's toured the world playing with East Coast's finest musicians and has worked passionately at the art of music, from creation to performance to production all the while maintaining his focus in the pursuit of forward thinking projects. His ECMA winning 2012 World Album of the Year "Localmotive Farm" shares the name with his CSA farm in Nova Scotia that fed 75 families in 20 weeks. His ECMA winning 2012 Children's Album of the Year "The Wood Buffalo Youth Song Project" was a collaborative project where he created a CD that the schools could use for fund-raising.  In 2014, Mullins released "Island Sol" recorded with a group of stellar Cuban musicians in Havana, Cuba.

His newest June 2016 release, "The Heart of Everything", is a Folk-Pop album  that Bob Mersereau describes as a "One big group hug in 11 tracks".

Canadian Beats Magazine says:  "In whole the album leaves the listener with the sense that the happy innocence of youth can still be had if only in brief glimpses, that love can be found and is worth looking for and that there is always hope when you know where home is."

Keith creates music from the soul; the instruments he uses to express it - drums, vocal, guitar - are all secondary. - Andrew Fedora
