Early days from Tom & John…

Keane is the band of genius Keane brothers of Los Angeles, Tom Patrick Keane (birthday: March 13, 1964) and John Morgan Keane (birthday: April 26, 1965).

As “The Keane Brothers”, they released their 1st album “The Keane Brothers” under 20 century Records in 1977 produced by David Foster and supported by west coast talented musicians such as Jeff Porcaro, Mike Porcaro, Harvey Mason, Lee Sklar, Larry Carlton, Bill Champlin and many many more. In 1979, their 2nd album “Taking Off” produced by Lamont Dozier, David Paich and David Foster.

2 years later, Keane brothers had completed their 3rd album “Keane” under the name of the band “Keane”, which was sold about 40,000 copies in Japan and in those days called as “Little Toto” or “Young Toto” for the sound of them.

In 1982, “Today, Tomorrow and Tonight” were released, on which albums Jason Scheff joined the band as bassist instead of Mike Milwood. Nowadays, Keane brothers are appearing on many albums as supported musicians, songwriters and/or producers.
