Biography

Starting out as a poet/writer , I recently graduated to playing guitar and now combine the two . From social commentary to exploring the internal landscape of the heart , interpersonal relationships and personal experience , it all makes up the ingredients of my two studio recorded albums . Having done radio appearances , support slots for major performers and my own personal guest spots , I also host and perform at three regular and very popular events here on merseyside . Sundays at Sudley ( national museums ) Kaleidescape ( The Walker art gallery ) Come strut your stuff at The Egg cafe . www.myspace.com/kehoesongs

You,ve got to give back ( to get out of here ) What remains of your culture now little boy blue did you give back the treasure you stole ? Did the demons within set you free from your sin but deny you the key to your soul . You ,ve got to give back to get out of here there is only one path you must choose did Marie Antoinette with her last cigarette declare " give the poor beggar my shoes " Are you paying the price for redemption is there more to be gained than is lost did you sign your confession not learning your lesson and end up just counting the cost . You,ve got to give back to get out of here there is only one path you must find did the first man in space feel a bit out of place when he thought that they,d left him behind ? Now you,ve got to be blind not to notice that the world,s not the way that it seems and if all you can do is just think about you then you,re too busy living your dreams . You,ve got to give back to get out of here this is only one moment in time could Houdini escape without being awake to the forces by which he was tied . You,ve got to give back to get out of here there is only one path you will need take the road straight ahead and don,t ever forget that you don,t have to win to succeed .

Yes I did enjoy thanks! The words will do me good I think - very positive thinking-wise! Why not post it on the blog section - that's where folks usually find poems rather than on the profiles.

("did the first man in space
feel a bit out of place
when he thought that they,d left him behind ?"
- love it!
