Keane are known for using a piano as their lead instrument instead of guitars, significantly differentiating them from most rock bands. The inclusion of a distorted piano effect since 2006 and various synthesizers are now a common feature in their music[1][2] that nowadays combines the pure piano rock sound used during their first album and the alternative rock sound which developed during 2005. Acoustic and power ballads are also a highlight in the group's music and have evolved into many fan favourite songs such as "On a Day Like Today" and "We Might As Well Be Strangers".

History

Early years and formation

Rice-Oxley's brother — also called Tom — was born in the same hospital on the same day as Chaplin, on March 8, 1979. Their mothers became friends, as did Chaplin and Rice-Oxley. Tom's father David[4] was the headmaster of Vinehall School in Robertsbridge (owned by Chaplin's family) for 25 years, the school both Rice-Oxley and Chaplin attended. Both of them later attended Tonbridge School, where they met Dominic Scott and Richard Hughes.

While studying at University College, London for a degree in classics in 1995, Rice-Oxley finally managed to form a rock band with Scott, and invited Hughes to play drums. The Lotus Eaters started as a cover band, playing songs by the members' favourite bands, including U2, Oasis, and The Beatles, and rehearsing at home. Adam Tudhope took managing whom Rice-Oxley met and became friends with at University. Tudhope is also involved in film production through his company, White House Pictures and has contributed to some English films such as Love Actually. The band composed a song for the film, but it was not used. The Front Quad University College London, commonly known as UCL, is one of the colleges that make up the University of London. ...

After listening to Rice-Oxley's piano playing, during a weekend at Virginia Water, Surrey in 1997, Chris Martin invited him to join the early Coldplay. However, Rice-Oxley declined because he did not want to leave Keane, stating "I was seriously interested, but Keane were already operational and Coldplay's keyboard player idea was dropped."[2] Due to Martin's offer, and although Hughes and Scott were originally opposed to it, Chaplin joined the band in 1997, taking Rice-Oxley's place as vocalist and adding himself as the acoustic guitarist. Chaplin's recruitment also marked a change of name from The Lotus Eaters to Cherry Keane, after a friend of Chaplin's mother, whom Rice-Oxley and Chaplin knew when they were young.[6] At her death due to cancer,[7] she had left money for Chaplin's family. Chaplin commented "I used some of the money to see me through the harder times with the music."

Chaplin departed for South Africa in summer 1997 to work as a volunteer during his gap year. Chaplin's early experiences there would later be reflected in the band's position for the Make Poverty History campaign. Returning a year later on July 3, 1998, Hughes's first words when the band picked up Chaplin at the airport were "We've got a gig in ten days."[5] With original material, Keane made their debut live appearance at the "Hope & Anchor" pub on July 13, 1998. As commented on by Rice-Oxley, though the band's music included guitar their sound was "epic and dreamlike", distinguishing the band from others. After this gig, throughout 1998 and 1999 the band performed on London's pub gig circuit. In 1998, Chaplin went to Edinburgh University to study for a degree in art history.[5] However, he later quit his degree and moved to London, in order to pursue a full-time musical career with his friends.[2][5] // The Make Poverty History campaign (which is written as MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY) was a British and Irish coalition of charities, religious groups, trade unions, campaigning groups and celebrities who mobilized around the UKs prominence in world politics in 2005 to increase awareness and pressure governments into taking actions towards relieving absolute... is the 184th day of the year (185th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Early releases and Scott's departure

In late 1999, and without a record deal, Keane recorded their first promotional single, "Call Me What You Like". Released on CD format through Keane's own label, Zoomorphic, it was sold after the gigs at the pubs where Keane used to play during February 2000. Only five hundred copies were printed.[9] The tracks, however, can now be found on the internet.

The band members have declared they are not against fans sharing tracks that are unreleased on CD, such as the "More Matey" and "Emily" demo tracks. Chaplin has commented "they most likely see those recordings as an interesting extra to get hold of - I don't see it causing any damage. If it was the album we have coming out leaked early (Under the Iron Sea) then I'd probably feel differently."[10] The EP was reviewed by Ben Rodwell from eFestivals who listed "Closer Now" as the best song of the record - one that is particularly enjoyed by fans today.[11] This is a discography for English Piano rock band Keane, containing all official releases since February 2000 and information about their early songs and cover versions. ...

Four months after the "Call Me What You Like" re-recording session in February 2001, their second single, "Wolf at the Door" was released. Only fifty hand-made copies are known to have been made, using unlabelled CD-Rs.[12] Both singles are considered highly valuable collectors' items by fans.

Due to the limited success Keane had at this time, Scott decided to leave the group a month after this single was released in order to continue his studies at the LSE.[13] Before this, in November 2000, Keane were invited by record producer James Sanger to his recording studio at Les Essarts, France, where the band recorded a number of tracks from August to November 2001, including "Bedshaped" and "This Is the Last Time". It was during these sessions that the idea of using a piano as lead instrument began to emerge. Sanger received a shared credit for four songs that appeared on Keane's debut album Hopes and Fears, including the song "Sunshine", the only one composed there.[14]

The remaining members of the band returned to England in November 2001. Soon after, they signed to BMG to publish their music, but at this time they did not have yet a recording contract. 2002 was a hard year for Keane.

In December 2002, Keane returned to performing live. Luckily, one gig at the Betsey Trotwood in London was attended by Simon Williams of Fierce Panda Records, the same man who had discovered Coldplay years previously. Williams offered to release the first commercial single by the band. This release would be "Everybody’s Changing", which Steve Lamacq went on to name single of the week on Lamacq Live on April 19, 2003; the CD Single was released on May 12, 2003.[15] Fierce Panda Records is a London, England based independent record label. ...

As a result of the attention created by this release, a bidding war for the band ensued between major labels,[16] with the band deciding to sign with Island Records in summer 2003. The band released "This Is the Last Time" on Fierce Panda, in October 2003, as the final release on that label.

Even before the release of the album (in May 2006), Keane had started their second world tour that would promote the album. However, due to the extensive touring, on August 22, 2006, Chaplin announced he had admitted himself to a clinic for drinking and drug problems. This initially resulted in the cancellation of three gigs and postponement of their September US tour. The entire North American tour was later cancelled outright to allow continued treatment.[23] As a result, the upcoming UK and European tours - scheduled for October and November 2006 - were considered to be liable for possible postponement depending on Chaplin's treatment. Chaplin left the Priory Clinic in London on October 6, but to date he is still receiving treatment. Image File history File links KeaneAtAlexandraPalace. ...

Musical style and themes

Tim Rice-Oxley and Dominic Scott were the main writers of the band's songs during their early years. When Scott left in 2001, Rice-Oxley became the main composer.[28] However, Rice-Oxley credits the rest of the band on all compositions, so that royalties for song credits are shared.[28] Timothy Tim James Rice-Oxley is the co-founder, pianist and composer of English piano rock and alternative rock band Keane. ...

Keane have cited bands such as The Beatles, U2, Oasis, R.E.M., The Smiths, Radiohead, Queen, Marty Wilde, Pet Shop Boys and Paul Simon as influences.[29] The band has been known as "the band with no guitars", due to its heavily piano-based sound. By using delay and distortion effects on their piano sound, they often create sounds that aren't immediately recognisable as piano. Rice-Oxley said during an interview in Los Angeles that they tend to think piano-related music is boring and what they really wanted to do was try something different. He referred to the piano as an odd instrument to form part of a rock band instrumentation, comparing it to The Beatles' set of instruments.

During their early years most songs were about love or broken relationships (most notably "She Has No Time" and "On a Day Like Today"). However, other themes — including the relationship between Rice-Oxley and Chaplin — have emerged in more recent compositions.[30] Other themes have been explored; for example, "Is It Any Wonder?" and "A Bad Dream" are both about war.[31] Hopes and Fears is the debut album by English piano rock band Keane, released on May 10, 2004. ...

Criticism

Due to the piano-based music and the alternative sound of the debut album, critics first regarded Keane as Coldplay imitators;[32][33][34] the media however, in supporting Keane, started calling them the "new Coldplay", with reference to their recent commercial success.[2][35] Newer bands such as Morning Runner and The Fray have been compared to both Keane and Coldplay for the piano-oriented sound of their music.

Live and studio instrumentation

After Scott departed, Rice-Oxley started using a Yamaha CP-70 piano, a quality instrument especially designed for touring that he read about in a Beatles book written by their producer, George Martin.

The computer software includes an electronic click-track transmitted wirelessly to the three members' Sennheiser earphones to aid accurate playback. It also controls the extra synthesizer sections that would be impossible to play live with the current line-up. In October 2004, when "Hamburg Song" and "Nothing in My Way" debuted, Chaplin played a Hammond MK2 organ, having played no instrument in the live band since 2001. Following this, in 2006 he started to play a distorted CP60 (an upright version of the Yamaha CP70) for some songs like "The Frog Prince" and "Crystal Ball".

Since October 2006's UK tour, Chaplin has also played acoustic guitar during gigs, particularly during "Your Eyes Open" which was performed in an acoustic set-up.

During this performance, Rice-Oxley also played a bass guitar live to accompany "This Is the Last Time", while Chaplin took the lead performing a new piano arrangement of the song on the CP-70.
