Applauded by the New York Times as a “major vocal talent with a range that shatters conventional boundaries… and a trickster’s dark wit,” Joseph Keckler is a musician, writer, songwriter and multifaceted creator. His work has been presented by NPR Tiny Desk, Lincoln Center, Centre Pompidou, and many others. His writing has appeared in publications including McSweeney’s and Lithub. His story and essay collection, “Dragon at the Edge of a Flat World” was published in 2018 and in 2019 he premiered two evening-length performances pieces, including the critically acclaimed Train With No Midnight, and toured the United States as rock group Sleater-Kinney’s national support act. He will tour Australia on double bills with Lydia Lunch in March of 2024 and is currently recording new music and working on several film projects.
