About Keith...

Singer, songwriter, retreat leader--Keith Elder has spoken and performed for thirty-plus years in a wide variety of church, conference, and community settings. While serving local churches in North Alabama, first as a youth director then as a pastor, Keith continued to write and record, play small concert venues, and provide leadership for special events. As of July, 2020, he is officially retired from pastoral ministry, which makes him even more available to sing and speak for local churches and special events.


Keith has recorded seven full album projects, with his latest, "Mine that Mountain," being released in August, 2014. He has numerous new projects in the works including "Good Life" (due for release, Fall of 2022), and an accoustic Christmas project. Besides many theme songs for camps, service organizations, and special events, he has also written and produced several small-scale musicals.


Keith's songs are life/people songs crossing the lines of Christian, Folk/Americana, Musical Theater, and contemporary Bluegrass. When asked about his genre, he says he just tries to write what come out on a given day. His hope is that he can share an honest, compelling word with his audiences, and to do so in a musical form that best conveys the message. His favorite songwriter quote came from the legendary Roger Miller: "Songwriting is easy. It's like taking candy...from a BEAR!"


Because the new songs continue to surface, Keith's concerts and Sunday morning messages-in-song are ever-evolving, but all include songs, stories, and food for thought.  If you hear echoes of James Taylor, John Denver, or Larry Gatlin, you won't be the first.  


Keith and Jean, his wife of 44 years, currently reside in Vestavia Hills, Alabama.
