Raw, passionate, soulful and gritty, Ron Keyes with his band, a.k.a. george, provides classic American songwriting from their very first note.

Simplistic in its beauty and hip to the point of envy, Ron's writing is hobo-sophisticate for an empty, emotionless Internet age. A monkey wrench thrown into this high-tech rat race. A primitive and much-needed reminder that, in this era of point, click and send, real life happens when people love, fail, dream and lose.

a.k.a. george has never been just another band. Ron's thoughtful, intelligent lyrics make it too smart for pop. Yet, its glorious harmonies make it too smooth for blues, and its funkiness and groove make it too hip for folk.

Reviewers have called Ron Keyes a "hip modern day Dylan" who displays an astonishing talent for poetically rendering age-old truths with authentic originality. He is not, however, only a poet. He also has a deep appreciation for and understanding of his musical heritage.
