Keats Ross was raised between the societal desolation of the American Southwest and the death-rattle of the Los Angeles "New-Age" movement. The likes of Robert Anton Wilson, Marilyn Ferguson and Timothy Leary (as well as various other counter-culture luminaries) loomed large, both physically and ideologically, in his youth.
Ross began self-releasing music via MP3.com at the ripe age of 13 as DAKOTA SLIM - beginning his work as a prolific creator and audio engineer, while writing semi-professionally for a local newspaper and devouring esoteric knowledge. This is the common chord prevalent throughout all his work:. The artistic process as a majorly metaphysical practice. It's within this that his unrelenting artistic process has conjured a fervent body of work among many a creative medium.
His musical project DAKOTA SLIM just released a new album, BARDOS, in 2022.
He founded WE THE HALLOWED (a conceptual art collective/ arts and culture blog) to facilitate a community of disparate artists, across varied mediums, to publish artistic works from musical albums to printed books. He currently hosts / produces the popular PRAGMAGICK podcast.
