In 2001 Keith moved away from Peterborough for work and once again became interested in playing live music. He subsequently played for the ‘Heron Skiffle Band’ in Norfolk and for Lincoln Bands ‘The Armory Boys Skiffle Band’ and ‘The Coffee Bar Cowboys’. After finally retiring from work he moved back to Peterborough.
Keith now plays regular solo gigs in pubs, cafes and at private events.

Powerful female-fronted rock delivered with a fiery finesse, False Hearts’ distinct sound and indomitable presence have put them firmly on the radar of music fans across the country. Comprising of vocalist/guitarist Emma Hodgson, Lead Guitarist Ali Westwood, drummer Adi Bowes and bassist Phil Benton, False Hearts have drawn on past experience ranging from rock bands to brass bands and orchestras to create their own captivating brand of modern rock.
Forming in Cambridgeshire as recently as 2016, False Hearts have already secured a place in the NMG Hall of Fame and a movie credit on the soundtrack of Strangers 2: Prey at Night (sequel to Universal Pictures’ 2007 horror movie The Strangers) with their fan-favourite single ‘Cynical Love’. The single was taken from the band’s latest EP, ‘Dirty Little Soul’, which released in 2018 to widespread acclaim and reached no. 27 on the iTunes Rock Chart.
The arrival of bassist Phil Benton in 2018 heralded a further maturing of False Hearts’ songwriting and approach, proving to be the perfect catalyst in driving the band onward. With a growing national fan base and steadfast reputation for rock-done-right, the band can frequently be heard gracing the airwaves of prominent radio stations such as BBC Introducing, drawing comparisons to the likes of Halestorm and The Pretty Reckless along the way.
The year ahead will see the band making appearances at numerous festivals including Norfolk’s F-19 Music Festival and Just Push Play, which takes place in Bury St. Edmunds in August 2019 in aid of St. Nicholas Hospice Care. With a busy gig calendar lining up for 2019 and exciting new projects underway behind the scenes, False Hearts are poised for a leap to the top.
A new wave of rock is approaching; join us in fuelling the flames.

In March I won the Signature Music Festival . This summer is busy as I am playing lots of music festivals. I get inspired by all genres as I love pop and country. I listen to old stuff like Dolly Parton to modern day country Maureen Mauren. I love Pink and Sigrid. I really admire Sia and Lady Gaga's style and vocals. I use my writing songs as my therapy.
Natasha Richardson: I first began composing music on the piano when I was eight years old, but it wasn’t until about a year and a half ago that I started singing, playing the guitar and songwriting. My songs have always been my favourite way of expressing myself and help me to clear my mind and share my thoughts and emotions creatively.
