A native Midwesterner, Donovan chose Austin, Texas, to cultivate his music dreams and moved across the country with no job, friends, and no experience in leading the band he was about to form. Soul Track Mind grew into an outlet for Donovan’s love of classic soul music and gave him the perfect vehicle for his first years as a songwriter and performer.
From 2008 to 2016, STM was embraced by the Austin music scene and expanded like a blast wave throughout Texas. Donovan’s one-of-a-kind, dance-infused stage show became beloved by fans and acknowledged by reviewers across the country, earning kudos from the likes of Performer Magazine which declared, “Aside from showcasing an impressive vocal range and blues-soaked sound, Keith can engage an audience with his unbridled enthusiasm and dance moves.”
Successes for Donovan include winning the Louisiana Music Prize in 2014; playing Wakarusa Festival; SXSW official showcases in 2015 & 2016; sharing bills with Enrique Iglesias, Tower Of Power, Charles Bradley, and Erykah Badu
Now on his own behind a 2017 EP release "Carry Me On", he's poised to bring his unique rhythm & power of Soul/Pop to a national audience and skip across any stage that tries to contain him.
