This is Kelsey Lee Keogh’s second year with Ten Grands. She is a pianist in the greater Seattle area, and can be found regularly performing at SkyCity Restaurant at the Space Needle, Canlis and The Bellevue Collection. In these places, Kelsey plays a wide variety of repertoire, including romantic jazz standards, classic favorites, contemporary pop songs, etc. During her formative years, she was classically trained, and tangentially explored several other styles of music, including jazz, rock and improvisational solo piano. She enjoys incorporating these various influences into her style of playing. Also a composer, she will soon be releasing an album of original pieces.
Kelsey is passionate about supporting and promoting other artists, and actively networks with musicians throughout the United States and abroad. To aid in this end, she earned a BA in Communications and Media Studies from the University of Washington. For Kelsey, being involved in the creative process and celebration of music making is an incredibly rewarding endeavor.
