Album Notes
‘Drink Up While You’re Here’ is destined to become a folk club floor spot standard - an unrecognised stone classic. Hugely impressed, some political protest as well. Really great stuff. (Tom Morton - BBC Radio Scotland presenter)

One fine writer. ‘Religious War’ - darned good song. (Bruce Murdoch - Canadian Folk singer)

THE EXILE OF ELGIN hails from the Highlands of Scotland and is former International tennis player Keith Meisner. His 12 track debut album "Drink Up While You're Here" is influenced by the political protest, blues and love songs of Bob Dylan delivered in a distinctive Scottish folk style.

Keith first drew inspiration for his song writing when travelling the world competing as a junior tennis player. He reached the top 100 in the world, winning titles on three continents and became Scottish Amateur Champion.
He is now chasing a different dream. He has traded his tennis racket for an acoustic guitar and harmonica but retains the same intensity that will bring success on the musical stage.

With a powerful Scottish voice and songs to match, he adds his own modern style to his folk and blues influences. Meisner’s passion for words and song writing come from Bob Dylan and indeed Meisner has albums worth of written material waiting to be recorded and released. He shoots straight from the hip for all to hear.

Myspace/Facebook comments:

“Makes the Blues sound like they were born on the banks of the Clyde.”
“With beautifully strong voice and songs, you carry on a marvelous, ages old tradition of social and political commentary. I salute your thoughts and your ability to present them for the world to hear”
“Thought he kicked of that one sounding a bit like a Scottish Elvis, enjoyed them”
“Sound & classic outstanding in total, from voice over composition to instrumental performance.”
