Keagan was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1998. He moved to Christchurch, New Zealand at age 6. Music was not in the family in any major way, his dad played a 12 string on and off and his brother was in a couple rock bands growing up. But there was nothing major to set him on a musical path. His love for music didn’t flourish until age 12 where he started listening to the likes of Green Day. It was bands like this that started him on the path to become a drummer. Starting one on one lessons at age 12, he slowly started gaining proficiency in his instrument. He took a short break while
... trying to be able to fund a drum kit. it wasn’t until he got his first drum kit at age 14 that he started to gain skill. Playing along to tracks and covering bands like Green Day he discovered his love for the raw energy of pop-punk.
Before study, his music took him to small scale events like small weddings, local talent shows and lunchtime music concerts. It wasn’t until he decided to studying at ARA Music Arts that he knew it was time to start taking his craft seriously. As he knew this was all he ever wanted to do. Starting the Level 4 Music Certificate course at age 18 he begun a 4 year process to complete a Bachelor of Music Arts Majoring in Drums. He has now completed his Level 4 Certificate and his Bachelors Degree in Music Performance and is now on the lookout for more musical opportunities and contracts.
Played in covers and originals bands in my hometown of Christchurch, playing in bars and clubs for years. I have also recently played many venues for my tours with Showtime Australia playing in venues from halls to arenas.
