What a night of music and revelry with  brothers Evan Stock and Co. Evan brought me this Stratocaster/Tele/Les Paul Jr/Les Paul Double Cutaway/Frankenstein body so I've set to work trying to build a new guitar to use on some upcoming recording that's on the books. It's ported for tele so I've got the control plate and wiring all coming in this week. I acquired a saddle and 70's Retro Fender All Parts neck. Things are coming in quick so I'm looking at pickups now! I'm going to name her Daisy 'John Wayne Stock' Duke -  AKA 'The Duke' or 'John Wayne' if you're into brevity. Anyway I've never really invested in my sound like I should so I'm stoked to make this the first step of many in cementing a tone for myself and my playing. - mk

8.20.19

Really looking forward to playing with my brothers in RsR and sharing the bill with our dear friends in The Evan Stock Band this Friday, August 23rd, 2019 at Two Brothers Roundhouse in Aurora, IL. This vacation has been a much needed reminder to slow down and recharge when you can. Can't wait to see you all at a revival soon. - mk

8.16.19

Really enjoying some quiet time up at the lake with my son and my gal. It's incredible to see hints of Fall starting to take hold here in northern MI.

Can't wait to play some music about it soon. - mk

Well my dreams have come true and I'm proud to announce the birth of my son. Matthew David Keen joined our ranks on July 3rd, 2019 at 1:49am and I'm thrilled.

While the rain seems relentless the last couple weeks it's not thwarting any creativity on mine and the bands end. Evan and I have been hard at work generating new material for RsR and I must say it's some of our most unique and accurate representations of us as a band to date. We'll be sure to keep everyone posted as we look towards a new release this summer. - mk 

4.20.19

Been hard at work picking out the right song to work behind and release as a single this summer. We've got so much material that we've generated over the last couple years it's hard to choose. I'm leaning towards songs we haven't yet released as I'd love to work this summer behind material that's just as fresh for our fans as it is for the band. Feel free to email us at rebelsoulrevival@gmail.com and let us know what song you'd like to hear a studio version of. Looking forward to the coming revivals - mk
