Keith Dudley is a singer/songwriter based in

Nashville, TN and Fort Mill, SC where he

resides with his wife Karen and children Krista and Kevin.

Keith began his 25 year music career at the age of 13 when he wrote and performed his first song. From an early age his mother had a major impact on his love of music and helped shape his soulful roots. He was exposed to Motown greats like Aretha Franklin,

Al Green and the most influential singer for Keith, Otis Redding.  After his parents divorced he was raised by his grandparents, devout Christians, who introduced him to gospel music. This diverse love of music culminated in his life long career as a singer/songwriter, Keith has traveled extensively throughout the United States and other countries as a performing artist. Formerly a gospel artist with The Benson Music Group, Keith charted two top five singles from his album “Talk About It”. From 1996 to 1999 Keith was signed to a publishing contract with Acuff Rose Music Publishing Company where he wrote pop, country, and Christian music. He had two number one songs for the group 4Him. In 2000, Keith was nominated for a Dove Award for his song “The Hand of God”. He has toured with such groups as the Imperials, Point of Grace, 4Him, Truth and Phil Driscoll. Keith is also an accomplished public speaker, performing at corporate events, high schools, colleges and universities throughout the US and other countries. For seven years Keith was involved in the cable television industry. He served as executive vice president in charge of Creative Development for an upstart cable network and three years as CEO and chairman of IMT (International Music Television).  Keith now returns to what he loves and does best, creating music that reflects passion as well as the joy and pain of living. His current project, “China Grove”, showcases Keith’s philosophy, “We are created as creatures of passion - passion for love and a passion for life.  We also have experienced pain and loss, therefore we can only hope that our passion for life overcomes this pain, and helps us pick up the pieces and live.” A year in the making, “China Grove” was pre-released in the summer of 2008.  “Love’s Been Good” has already reached #7 on the Power Source Charts in only a few months.  Music industry legends such as Michael Omartian and other top Nashville session players contributed to this project which reflects Keith’s diverse musical influences. Michael Omartian, a GRAMMY award winning producer, says “there are definite criteria that make a hit record, and I can say with confidence that Keith has this in abundance.

The songs are wonderful, soulful and his voice is amazing.” This project truly reflects the diversity and heart of Keith.

The title song “China Grove” is slated to be released in 2009.
