Berklee Summer Concert SeriesKeppie Coutts
Keppie Coutts is immersed and reveling in the new wave of folk fusion—an eclectic melding of acoustic-based songs that step inside jazz, soul, and quirky pop.
Multi-Grammy Award–winning artist John Mayer heard one of her new tunes ("Waiting for the Avalanche") and within a week had taken it into the studio in Boston to record. Coutts had scored a private audience with Mayer as one of 12 young songwriters hand-selected to spend the week with Mayer.
Since arriving in Boston in 2005 she has won the praise of peers, audiences, and mentors, and has performed extensively in the Northeast, including at the Bitter End and the Bowery Poetry Club in New York, as well almost every conceivable venue in Boston. Her host of achievements has led her to the position of assistant professor at Berklee College of Music.
