Kara Keith is an eclectic singer/songwriter who has formed different bands by different names
at different times in her life. Subsequently she has quit them all. Choosing now to
perform in a band by her own name, Kara Keith realizes it may be the
most difficult one to quit.
Born in Calgary, Keith was active in the indie music scene there until
she accepted a scholarship to attend The Banff Centre for the Arts in
2007/08. After completing an 8 month artist residency in the magic mountains she moved to Montreal, formed a new band; "Your Dignity", and recorded her first full length album "Vision's Fugitives" which was engineered by
grammy nominated producer Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire) and Radwan
Moumneh (Thee Silver Mount Zion, Godspeed You Black Emperor)

From last year's self titled EP, the track "Kick This City" made it to spot #2 on the R330 Summer 2008.
Both "Hotmouth" and "Here's Your Ghost" were released to much critical acclaim. With only a breif two week tour in support of the albums and limited live concerts, both albums made it into the top 10 Exclaim! earshot charts.
Kara Keith and company have been recorded twice live for cbc3 and once for Zed TV.
Kara's independantly made Falconhawk video for the song "Olympia" was picked up by Much Music, MTV2 and MTV and toured the world as part of "The International Underground Video Festival" in 2005.
The newly formed "Kara Keith and Your Dignity" has begun playing in Montreal and plans to tour in support of "Vision's Fugitives" spring/summer 2009.
