Hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, Keep 6 is a 5 piece original rock band driven by sheer determination to make waves in the Canadian music scene. Formed in 2007, the band consists of Scott Chalmers (guitar), Glenn Thorpe (lead guitar), Shorre McColman (Vocals), Matthew Wispinski (Bass) and Jay May (Drums).
In late 2007 Keep 6 produced the debut album, “Humanifesto”. The sound and songs were raw with no holds barred, achieving a successful fan base and number of sales. One song, “Without Being Human” was nominated to the top 5 finals in the Regional Canadian Songwriting Competition sponsored by Bear 100.3 FM. In early 2010 the guys released their second album called “Four Fangs”. The album produced great independent success for the band as each song was technically driven with clever grooves and choruses. “Four Fangs” was promoted on an eight week Radio ADD campaign with the reputable Tinderbox Music Co. based in Minneapolis, MN, USA. Concluding the campaign, the band was approached by several television production companies for licensing agreements to use their music during the 2011 season. The band is finishing up it's 3rd full length album entitled, "Just a Matter of Time" with a scheduled release in early 2012.
Since their inception, Keep 6 had the honor of sharing the stage with such acts as A Perfect Circle, Three Days Grace, Sloan, Social Code, Priestess, Matthew Good, Three, and Streetheart. Summer Fests include Boonstock 2007, 2008, 2010, and 2011 as well as the Annual Ride for Dad Cancer Fund Raiser. Every live show produces a greater fan base in western Canada with future plans of increasing it to eastern Canada and USA. Taking one step at a time, the band has committed themselves to the group for the long haul and is still compromised of all the original members. Regarding the future of the band, these musicians are not only on the same page but on the same paragraph. Remember the name Keep 6 because it won't be the last time you hear it. ,
