Singer-songwriter Keith Vance has strong ties to Cellar Door. Back when Cellar Door was a coffee shop/music venue, his band The Wood and Wires was a regular favorite and contributed tracks toCellar Door Volume I in 2003. When Cellar Door relaunched in 2007, Keith contributed two solo tracks to Cellar Door Volume II and performed at the launch party at the Beachland Ballroom. In 2008, Cellar Door released Kill the Lights by The Slow Blade (with Vance as lead guitar), and Vance’s first solo record in 2010. Most notably, Cellar Door signed and now manages Vance’s latest band So Long Albatross, who has been making some serious waves in the Cleveland music scene for the past year.
