I've known Keith for many years and worked with him as a songwriter, producer and business associate. In addition to being one of the most positive individuals I've ever known, Keith is a true professional going above and beyond whatever is needed to see a task or job through to completion. He's extremely creative, driven, honest and what I would call solution oriented. He puts people first in all situations, treating them fairly which is a rare trait to find in creatives these days.

I met Keith Ridenour several years ago while I recording my debut EP Shine on which he co-wrote two songs. We have been writing and working together ever since. He co-wrote and produced most of my debut album Testimony. Currently he is producing my new album Warrior In Me which he also co-wrote several songs on. Keith has such a knowledge and love for all things music. His energy and positivity are infectious. Keith believed in me when very few people did including myself. He has taken my music and I to a whole new level. I don't think I would be where I am today without Keith's insight and guidance. Getting to work with him is so amazing. Thanks isn't enough for the belief and trust he's had in me over the years as an artist."

His knowledge of song construction, lyric development, recording, and production are at an elite level. His knowledge of music theory and his superior guitar playing add to his ability to take a song from a kernel of an idea to a great composition. This combined with his enthusiasm, breadth of experience, and work ethic, make working with Keith on songwriting and recording a very fruitful and rewarding experience."

I’m so proud to say I’ve known and worked with Keith for 8 years. He’s a ball of energy and is always ready to rock n roll! He brings vibrant lyrics, catchy melodies, and the most fun and easy-going personality to every writing session, and is truly a joy and a thrill to collaborate with. I love every song we have written together...the country foot-tappers and the emotional piano ballads. Through our sessions and by example, Keith helped me grow and expand as a guitar player and songwriter. And not only is he a great songwriter, but a passionate band director, brainstormer, connector, mentor, and dear friend. This guy does it all!!!

Keith is an amazing person to collaborate with on song ideas because he is so much more than a songwriter. I came to him one day never have written a song. I had some poems and ideas but no songs. Keith sat back and listened and we talked about what the words meant and the stories that they told. He would have me sort of hum the chorus - what I thought I heard. He would then help me put music to my words and feeling to the music. He can truly work with any idea and any genre of music. He has played everything from Spanish guitar to bluesy Southern Rock to make each one of my songs each tell their own unique story. He works from the heart and that can be felt in the songs he works on. I would recommend him to anyone - from the very beginner to the most seasoned.
