Kelly Keeling, co-founder of Paris Keeling and the band's lead vocalist, commenced his career in music over 25 years ago at the age of 14. In 1990, he joined the rock band Baton Rouge as a vocalist and guitar player, and shortly thereafter the band was signed by Atlantic Records. Their album Shake Your Soul was released followed by Lights Out on the Playground a year later. That same year, Keeling was involved with his first platinum album, Alice Cooper’s Hey Stoopid, co-writing the song "Snakebite". In addition to Alice Cooper, Keeling has recorded, performed and/or toured with such distinguished musicians as Roger Daltrey, Don Dokken, George Lynch, Yngwie Malmsteen, Carmine Appice, Vinny Appice, Tony Franklin, Denny Laine, John Norum, Erik Norlander, Stuart Smith, and Michael Schenker. In 2005, Keeling released his first solo album Giving Sight to the Eye. He contributed to the Michael Schenker Group’s 25th anniversary CD Tales Of Rock & Roll and performed as lead vocalist on the debut Screamin' Lords CD Long Live Me. Keeling also toured with Trans-Siberian Orchestra in 2006 and 2007 as a lead vocalist.
Marty Paris, co-founder of Paris Keeling and featured guitarist, is best known for creating the Skulls Project - a collaboration of independent musicians in Hoboken, New Jersey. Their last project First Rites, was released in 2005 and several of the tracks on Paris Keeling's End of Ride Revisited including "Color Blind" and "Tears of Heaven" have their roots in that project. He also was a member of the band Pamlico Sounds dating back to the 80’s. Not only was Paris instrumental in creating Paris Keeling and in his roles as Executive Producer and writer/co-writer of 8 tracks, but much of End of Ride Revisited comes from his vision. Most of the album was recorded at Paris' Studio 55 in North Carolina.
