Welcome to the Experience

Keram creates his own unique style of music to reflect the eccentric life he has lived. Known not only as an electric frontman with such bands as Blue Dog Pict, Automated Gardens, Project: Ribcage and his own solo act, he is also a well known Hollywood actor who has appeared in over 50 films & TV shows including Punisher: War Zone, John Q, Texas Chainsaw 3D, 24, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, CSI and True Blood.

His new record "Come to Life" is a 10-song tour de force showcasing his range as a musician - from country swagger to glitch electro, Americana to 70's piano ballads. The album, which was successfully crowdfunded to 155% of its target also features blistering solos and guitar work by Rock n Roll Hall of Fame inductee and guitar legend Alex Lifeson of RUSH, among 30 other world class musicians Keram brought along for the journey.

Check out the new record - Come to Life!

Come to Life

by Keram

Canadian musician Keram, an accomplished film and television actor, is an out-of-the-box artist. His new album, Come To Life, executive produced by Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson, is a sprawling, other-worldly rock adventure that took an army of about 30 musicians, whose collective credits include Coheed & Cambria, Zappa Plays Zappa, Edwarde Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Mary Margaret O’Hara, and of course Rush.

The 10-song opus is an unpredictable hybrid of Americana, new age, electronica, roots, rock, theater, experimental, jazz, pop, and then some. It ends with the 21-minute title track.

Recorded in Toronto and LA, Keram chose the musicians for their improvisation skills, including Lifeson who appears on “Devil Knows Me Well,” “Mary Magdalene” and “Moving Dark Circles.” The album was mastered by Andy Vandette (Rush, David Bowie, Dream Theater) and “Mary Magdalene” was mixed by Rich Chycki (Rush, Dream Theater, Aerosmith).

As an actor — who has appeared in the films American History X, Punisher: War Zone, Irvine Welsh’s Ecstacy and Texas Chainsaw 3D and TV shows True Blood, The Mentalist, Saving Grace and The L Word — Keram (last name Malicki-Sanchez) brings that expression to his music too, writing from other people’s perspective — despicable, pompous, even the opposite gender.

So remember that time I promised to make a song in 7 days if I got 100 likes? 

It happened, and we did. It was all documented on Periscope and that will be available soon in digest form on YouTube due to a successful ensuing IndieGogo crowdfunding campaign. 

Last night I received the final masters from M.r Andy VanDette who again, went above and beyond to get it just right. We got Mr. Lifeson's notes and blessing. And I am deep into production on the music video. One of my faves I have ever made for a…

[VIDEO] Keram and company live at Supermarket - "The Devil Knows Me Well" 

"If you build it, he will come..." is the famous catch phrase from Field of Dreams.

For many members of my band, this is precisely what took place when we started the final song of our 10 song set at Supermarket Restaurant and bar in Kensington market, Toronto - on an otherwise quiet Tuesday night in the city - August 12th 2014.

That was the night that 150 people came to see us release the record "Come to Life" that me and my friends spent the better part of 7 years building. That was the night that Rock n'…Read more

The Long Journey to Making "Come to Life," the Record 

The other day my friend and fellow guitarist Pete Devlin (of band Blue Dog Pict) posted a link to a video from a web series I created with my co-producer Josh Joudrie called Rock Soup.

Pete said he was still over the moon about our show in Toronto with Mr. Alex Lifeson and all the other incredible musicians who joined us onstage including drummer Ryan Brown, bassist D'Arcy Maguire, harmonica player Marty Stelnick and guitarist Steve Costello. See Pete and I go way back to when we were just 14 year old kids…Read more
