Keyfinder – ‘Walk on By’
Hailing from Peoria, musician Keyfinder is a brilliant artist whose latest release ‘Walk on By’ needs to be heard this Autumn 2020.
A gorgeous band sound opens the release with a stunning guitar and melodic groove. Keyfinder’s charming vocals enter and masterfully guides the song along.
We adore the lyrics which are captivating and compel the listener. In addition, the main melody is memorable and stays with the audience after the song has finished. The instrumental solos are enticing, and we love the twists and turns in the piece. The pace changes toward the end of the single and Keyfinder takes the audience on a new path, unexpected and thrilling.
Keyfinder says about the release, “From the casio to the accordion, drums to guitar, I hope you find my music and lyrics to be more personal than what you’d hear elsewhere. I put lots of love in this track, and it’s a real treat for me to be able to share it with you.”
Keyfinder cites his influences as coming from artists such as Bright Eyes, Modest Mouse, Dirty Projectors, and Animal Collective. We can hear these artists coming through on ‘Walk on By’ but make no mistake, Keyfinder is making music all of his own.
‘Walk on By’ is the first of two singles to be released by Keyfinder (AKA Sam Wyant). Recorded at BAD VIBE STUDIOS by Wyant, he has done an excellent job in creating a single that is compelling and speaks directly to his audience.
We can not recommend ‘Walk on By’ highly enough. Keyfinder is an exciting artist who is continually evolving, and we look forward to hearing what he will do next!
