AnnaLee Keehner was born in Tallahassee, Florida, but was raised in Cairo, Georgia. Being born into a musical family, she grew up playing music at home and in church with her parents. Her parents have been playing & singing together for more than 30 years in and out of the church setting, and as such she's familiar with a wider range of music than most young adults are. Because of that, she enjoys playing the kinds of secular music she grew up around, such as the Beatles, the Mamas and The Papas, Carole King, among other "greats." When she was 13, she moved with her family to Vero Beach, Florida. In high school, she attended Indian River Charter for their above average Visual and Performing Arts Programs. While in jazz band, she met Will Keehner, and they ended up saying I do in 2012. Ever since meeting John, Brandon, and Patrick, everything has changed. The love for music in all of us is incredible, and the future is looking bright for Souljam!
