Angel in a Haunted House

Will Keizer

An angel, perched on the precipice of Heaven,
peers down upon the earth.
A place he’s never been.
He ponders evil, the fall of man, the condition of the human heart.
Who are these broken creatures that God would care so?
Now he’ll go and wander this world and see for himself,
the predicament of Mankind.

"A Midwest Gothic experience."

Moody and cinematic, this mostly instrumental album of guitar-oriented tracks is symbolic to an eerie dream; the soundtrack to the grainy black & white ghost story in your soul.

Imagine Henry Mancini working with Brian Setzer to score an Ingmar Bergman film.

"Intelligent, creative, and a bit spooky." -The Phantom Tollbooth
"...the music is so inventive. Fantastique!" - T. Dorsey (Producer)

Pictures in the Dark

Will Keizer

“Like a spark flashing in the dead of night, leaving a hazy image burned into our eyes, these are the Pictures in the Dark.”

Pictures in the Dark is the first album of material from songwriter/guitarist/producer, Will Keizer. Mixing elements of Art rock, 80s Alternative, New Wave and Indie, the record swings between moody rockers, lovelorn ballads, and the introspection of a man in flux.

Keizer here builds his house in the borderlands between art and accessibility. Sometimes he's tempting you to sing along, other times he seems to want you to sit back and just listen.

"What I love about a lot of earlier rock is the emphasis on melodies, the depth and nuance of the arrangements, and how open-minded people were musically. The music had flavor - you could taste it." He goes on, "I was once told by a publisher, who'd just heard one of my songs (Mystery), how cool but how strange it was that I changed the groove and key as I went into the chorus, and I thought, has this guy never heard the Beatles?"

As a writer, he moves easily between conversations about love, ponderings about life, and observations on society - sometimes in the same song. But he doesn't always make it obvious. You always know what he's feeling if not exactly what he's saying, but there is a depth of meaning here if one is willing to dig a little deeper. He's speaking to your soul rather than your head.

Pictures in the Dark is not your typical independent release, with your stripped down guitar and vocal. And it doesn't sound like it was recorded in your buddy's garage.
