Sane, Brad Keay
The musical group Runed has released a new EP called "Sincerely Deluded." Runed is musical therapy meshing gritty rock and roll vocals with a dark sonic quality. It chronicles Sane’s journey to the gate and back, from the heights of success to the door of death. Sane tells how he emerged from the depths of addiction and a near-death experience to entirely turn his life around and become a contributor, and visionary for his band Runed.
The band’s name “Runed,” is inspired by ancient Celtic beliefs in the power of the Runes stones. It’s hard not to get chills down your spine listening to Keay (Sane) describe the revelatory experience that he died and lived through; recounting it he seems to morph from a normal, pleasant but unremarkable fellow into the Sane persona that fans of his music and videos have become familiar with over the past few years.
“My music is about my journey of suffering that has led to enlightenment,”
“I used to be insane and now I’m Sane,” he says and notes that while he’s not an adherent of any organized religion, his visions and the powers he became aware of and their relatedness to the Runes have led him to reinvent himself and with the support of his band Runed as “Sane” a Crusader for Light and Love.
