Women of Michigan Metal: Interview with Keshia from Glass God
Keshia Driscoll-Cook, Bass
With excited expectancy of our Women in Michigan Metal showcase at Mulligan’s Pub in Grand Rapids, MI on July 7, 2023, we asked Keshia some in-depth questions hoping to gain insights to her inner most musical life and influences. She gave us very brief, quite poignant answers, that ultimately leave us with further questions, like “does Kirk Hammett’s hair make him a femme influencer to everyone?”
Keshia is the vocalist for Glass God, a newer Kalamazoo-based progressive metal band that is hard to fit into a tiny genre box because all of the members have both played in other bands for years, or have very obviously lived several past lives.
Catch Keshia and the whole band as they give you everything you asked for at MoshPitNation’s next local metal showcase.
