Ryan Cabrera, Keaton Simons

Ryan Cabrera

Keaton Simons plays music simply because he has to. With an extensive palate including a degree in Ethnomusicology, Keaton's craving for a diverse musical adventure has pushed him into many different genres. He's worked as a writer, musical director, singer, bassist and guitarist with notable acts like Gnarls Barkley, Black Eyed Peas, Snoop Dogg and Tre Hardson of the L.A. alternative rap group The Pharcyde. In addition, Keaton has found himself opening for Coldplay, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar and Train, writing with Jason Mraz and Hanson, producing a song for Disney teen star Nolan Sotillo (a Keaton composition, We Could Be Anything, in the new film Prom), and acting as the face of Advanced Guitar for the new Xbox game Rocksmith.

It is when performing his own songs, whether in the studio, alone on acoustic guitar or electric with his full band, that Keaton Simons truly shines. The energy and passion that Keaton brings to his work is as infectious as his lyrics and as soul stirring as his melodies. It is because of that immediate connection demanded by Keaton and his songs that many have been heard in dozens of feature films and television shows, including NCIS, Numb3rs, Malcolm in the Middle and Crash. It also doesn't hurt that Keaton himself is as down-to-Earth and genuinely appealing as his music. Go to one of Keaton's shows and you're as likely to see teenagers dancing in front as you are to see people 20-years older sitting in back, all drawn together by the universal appeal of his music.

Keaton has produced music with Mikal Blue (Colbie Caillat, One Republic), The Matrix (Avril Lavigne, Liz Phair) and David Bianco (Tom Petty, Bob Dylan), and has released albums both independently and through major labels, most recently 2008's Can You Hear Me on CBS Records. In 2011, Keaton Simons finds himself putting the final touches on a co-produced album with Mikal Blue, set for release in late-2011/early-2012, and preparing to spend time on the road, gaining fans the old fashioned way: One song at a time.

Saints In Rehab

We are a group of guys who have been friends for a long time. We started playing music at our church in the high school worship band. We loved every minute of the experience. We have now started to mature in our musical talents and began playing on our own time and started to develop Saints In Rehab. Our first show ever was Malone's Bar and Grill. Our second show? House of Blues.

Now we bring our music to the world. We are coming clean and letting everyone experience us for who we are. Often times people (us) try to hide our true selves under a mask and our egos take over. These songs are supposed to be fun, serious, funny, upbeat, and relaxed. In some cases we see our egos take over and in other cases get destroyed. We are, in our very nature, born saints. We are now realizing we can’t do it on our own. We want to get back to the people God made us to be. We are in rehab. We are all saints in rehab. You don’t have to be in the “band” to be a part of it. You are already a part of it. That feeling you get deep inside that wants to be better is starting to peek out. It’s waiting to be unleashed. Unleash yourself and let the death of your ego begin your life of good and peace. Love. Love everything. Love yourself. Love wins.
