The Proper Authorities is the solo musical project of singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Keith Adams. Known primarily for his drum work with the bands Sound Mind, 1000 Watt Revival, and most recently Giant Wow, Adams created the Proper Authorities to branch out and work on his lifelong compositional and performance skills.

As in past groups, he continues to experiment strongly in the modern pop rock genre with sounds and grooves that aren't usually found there. His appreciation for over-the-top arrangements is tempered nicely by his love for good hooks. His lyrics touch on a variety of subjects: matters of self; emotional snapshots in time; tragic and comic figures; and the things that we all want... or at least think that we want.

The Proper Authorities released its first full-length recording through the imprint Talon First Records in January 2006. The LP CD, entitled "Public Service Announcement," features 13 tracks and over 50 minutes worth of high-impact material for listeners and lovers of heavy guitar, electro textures, lush vocal harmonies, and booty-shaking grooves.

Drawing on his professional skills as a multimedia developer, Adams released a sci-fi music video for the song ?Devastate? in April 2006. This self-produced hybrid of CGI animation and live action features five holographic versions of himself performing on each instrument in the song, an Earth-threatening group of incoming asteroids, and a spaceship fitted with an enormous sound system of doom.
