The Proper Authorities is the solo musical project of singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Keith Adams. Known for his work with the bands Sound Mind, Giant Wow, 1000 Watt Revival, and The Cloven Hoof Theatre, Adams created the Proper Authorities to branch out and work on his lifelong composition and performance skills.
As in past groups, he continues to experiment strongly in the modern pop rock genre with sounds and grooves that aren't usually found there. His appreciation for over-the-top arrangements is tempered nicely by his love for good hooks. His lyrics touch on a variety of subjects: matters of self; emotional snapshots in time; tragic and comic figures; and the things that we all want... or at least think that we want.
