Keelan Donovan + Haunted Like Human w/ Grant Cowan

With upbeat anthems, quiet confidence, and a wicked sense of humor, Keelan Donovan knows how to light up a room. Since first hitting the road in 2014, the Maine-born and Nashville-based troubadour has logged over 600 shows across 48 states and four countries alongside the likes of All-American Rejects, Ben Rector, Matt Nathanson & New Politics as his music popped up everywhere from Spotify’s coveted “New Music Friday” and “Weekly Buzz” playlists to ABC’s Nashville and a trailer for The Hero starring Sam Elliott. His self-titled 2017 EP, Keelan Donovan [Big Yellow Dog Music/ADA], captures the engaging and enigmatic energy that defines him.

Haunted Like Human is bringing a new roots voice to Nashville: two parts folk, one part Americana, and a dash of some indie vibes. Classically trained guitarist Cody Clark has played everything from post-hardcore to jazz. Vocalist Dale Chapman grew up writing prose and poetry, and she brings her strong imagery and storytelling into her music. Through their myriad of influences, the two strive to create an unique and intimate listening experience for their audience. Their debut album, Ghost Stories, came out in September of 2017, and their next EP, Folklore, is set to release this fall.

Grant Cowan consistently charms audiences with his signature brand of jazz influenced piano pop. With impressive and genre-blending facility on piano, a warm and shining vocal tone, and a wonderful sense of humor, Grant brings spectacular energy to his live show. His insightful and clever lyrics create a wonderful and refreshing pop authenticity. Grant Cowan's anthems to youth are a sparkling contrast to the sophisticated, clean production of his debut EP Cover to Cover. His playful and moving pop tunes are the perfect backdrop for a night drive in Georgia, your first kiss, or the coming of age movie about your life. Driving pop beats, jazz inspired horns, and soulful piano: your new favorite song is on this record.

With upbeat anthems, quiet confidence, and a wicked sense of humor, Keelan Donovan knows how to light up a room. Since first hitting the road in 2014, the Maine-born and Nashville-based troubadour has logged over 600 shows across 48 states and four countries alongside the likes of All-American Rejects, Ben Rector, Matt Nathanson & New Politics as his music popped up everywhere from Spotify’s coveted “New Music Friday” and “Weekly Buzz” playlists to ABC’s Nashville and a trailer for The Hero starring Sam Elliott. His self-titled 2017 EP, Keelan Donovan [Big Yellow Dog Music/ADA], captures the engaging and enigmatic energy that defines him.

“I want people to think of me as a real person and hopefully even as a friend,” he exclaims. “I want to be approachable. That makes the songs relatable. It all comes back to that honesty and integrity of the performance on stage and in the studio. It’s a specific energy.”

Inspired by seeing a play about Buddy Holly in middle school, Keelan picked up his first guitar and started chasing that energy during eighth grade. Attending the University of Maine, he spent his weekends rocking covers at bars and frat parties, cutting his teeth in the process. Those early gigs paved the way for him to embrace songwriting.

He admits, “I thought to myself, ‘If I can make people happy on the weekends playing covers, what if I wrote my own songs and got the same reaction?’”

Around that time, he first heard “Little Lies” by Dave Barnes and learned about Belmont University in Nashville. The city ultimately called to him.

“Classic songwriting drew me there,” he says. “You come to Nashville, and it challenges you and wakes you up in a great way to be the best songwriter you can be.”

Upon graduating, he dove headfirst into Music City’s legendary scene influenced by the likes of Mat Kearney and Ingrid Michaelson. By 2013, he released the series of independent EPs that would comprise 2015’s Happenstance. He spent three straight years, averaging more than 200 shows annually. 2016 saw him ink a deal with Big Yellow Dog Music after its A&R caught a stunning and striking show.

In 2017, his self-titled debut fused lyrical storytelling, irresistible hooks, and singer-songwriter spirit driven by rich instrumentation. Right out of the gate, “In Arms Reach” amassed over 135K Spotify streams, while “Love of Mine” generated more than 256K-plus streams on the platform.

The single “Touch and Go” illuminates the expanse of his sound. Clean guitars and piano entwine as his voice takes flight on the stadium-size chant. “It’s about a real relationship,” he admits. “I’m 100% about the relationship today. Then, the next day, I might not be 100%. It’s a struggle. Love is work. It’s the most rewarding and heartbreaking thing at the same time. That’s the love I know. We all feel that push-and-pull. It’s not going anywhere.” "Touch and Go" broke into the Top 40 Hot AC Billboard Charts & remained there for five weeks.

Ultimately, that honesty drives everything he does. It’s why listeners will want to know Keelan for a long time to come.

“I hope people can hear a message,” he leaves off. “We’re in this together. There’s a lot of crap going on in the world—especially right now. If they can listen to my songs, see my show, meet me, and realize we’re all just people, that’d be amazing. I want them to walk away with underlying hope from listening to me and seeing me.”
