Keith Pereira is a country singer, songwriter and guitarist making a mark on the NZ country music scene. Keith’s rich country voice, high energy performances and guitar style, blend a uniquely 90’s country sound with a modern twist strongly influenced by his idols: Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, Vince Gill and The Eagles. His love for country music started very young as he listened to a country music radio show hosted by his uncle in the Middle East.
Since the start of 2018, Keith has won awards at all the major country music competitions in NZ including the NZ Gold Guitars and has also represented NZ at the Trans-Tasman Entertainer of the Year competition where he was runner-up and also presented with the Most Promising Artist Award. Keith has performed all across NZ at numerous festivals and concerts ranging from Christmas in the Park to NZ’s largest country music festival: Top Paddock Music Festival.
His solo performances and collaborations with notable country singers on YouTube have also drawn local and international attention resulting in: multiple sold out shows in Auckland with his band The Trail Benders; concerts in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto (Canada); and being invited to perform at a festival in Mumbai (India). Keith has also appeared on a number of TV shows including TV One’s Breakfast and has worked as a session country guitarist / singer for shows including Dancing with the Stars and Pop Stars.
After being one of the headlines at the 2023 Top Paddock Music Festival and being nominated for two songs at the MLT Songwriting Awards, Keith travelled to Canada to open for Caroline Jones and also headline the Viva Goa Festival in Toronto. Keith’s highly anticipated debut single is set for release in February 2024.
