Bitten by the jazz bug in the cradle, Keating has always resonated with music forged by earlier generations. Studying piano and voice privately with Art Ched, Chip Hand, Howlett Smitty Smith, Deborah Schulman and taking Master Classes with vocal luminaries, Seth Riggs and Mark Goodman, Keating has explored and refined her technique and phrasing on a quest to serve the music with emotion and the power of her own heart.
After undergraduate work in theatre at UCLA, Keating began producing her own shows as well as working for the likes of Leiber and Stoller (Smokey Joe's Café, Is That All There Is, Bernie's Tune), Roseanne (The Roseanne Show) and director, Mel Shapiro. Collecting rave reviews and critic’s awards along the way, Keating has toured the Western United States, Mexico, played in NYC, Las Vegas and Paris as well as performing an extended run in Japan. Married to award-winning fine artist, Warren Keating, the couple now make their home in New Mexico.
