I am a totally different person from the last time I was featured on MDWMN. It’s been a whirlwind. I was in the thick of therapy; diving into childhood trauma while also beginning a new relationship. Working at a job that I hated while simultaneously trying to get my acting career off the ground…but it feels like the dust has settled and I’m in a much better place now.

Read Keegan's first MDWMN editorial here.

My family has jumped on board the therapy train with me (although it took them a while to come around lol) which has seriously impacted the strains on our relationships with one another. I also gained a whole new family when I moved in with my boyfriend, Daniel, when the first lockdown hit. We live with his parents, grandmother, and brother. It’s a full house for sure, and there’s always a fight for the washroom, but it’s been a real blessing to be able to spend so much time with them during the pandemic.

Daniel and I have spent most of the pandemic working on new music and I’m very proud to say we released an EP! The songs featured have been a work in progress for years, so the EP is appropriately named “Out of My Head” because these songs are finally out of my head and into the world. (It’s also a lyric from another song we have coming out this summer, but you didn’t hear it from me). They’ve been completely transformed from the simple lyrics and melodies that I first created, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. This is how they were meant to sound, no doubt about it.
