About Joseph Keckler
Recently hailed by The New York Times as “major vocal talent whose range shatters the conventional boundaries,” singer, musician, writer, artist and humorist Joseph Keckler has garnered acclaim for his rich, versatile 3+ octave voice and sharp wit. He performs widely and has appeared at Centre Pompidou, Miami Art Basel, UCB, SXSW, Adult Swim Festival, the Lincoln Center and many other venues internationally. He made his off-broadway debut at the Lincoln Center in Preludes. He is the author of many songs, videos, and short pieces, as well as several evening-length performance pieces and plays. His book Dragon at the Edge of a Flat World was published by Turtle Point Press in 2017.
