guitar & voice


My performance life has largely been with my long time duo partner Colin McAllister.  Together we are the McAllister Keller Duo (MKD).  We have dedicated ourselves to presenting ecelectic concerts of new and old music.  We have been featured on notable concert series, such as the SoundOn Festival of Modern Music (San Diego, CA), the Festival of new American Music (Sacramento, CA), Festival Hispanoamericano de la Guitarra (Tijuana, MX), and sfSound (San Francisco, CA).  We relish the opportunity to premier seldom performed works by significant composers of the 20th C., Lachenmann, Donatoni, Reynolds, Carter, Schoenberg, Reich, and Murail.  Further through the playlist, you will find some solo work and some of my electric guitar playing as well. 

Voice (or both)

In additional to composing and guitar playing, I also sing professionally from time to time. You will notice that my repertoire is not limited stylistically.
