Born on the island of Tobago, Keishaun was introduced to the steelpan at 5 years old. However, it was after his first Panorama at age 10 with Our Boys Steel Orchestra, that ignited his love for this unique instrument, setting the stage for his future path. Keishaun credits his mentor, Leeandro Noray, for playing an instrumental role in helping him grow as a soloist. Some of Keishaun’s musical influences include Duvone Stewart, Ken “Professor” Philmore, Liam Teague, and Len “Boogsie” Sharpe.
