Keith Ian Dallison was born on December 9th 1960 in Birmingham, England to Kenneth and Dorothy Dallison. He has an older sister, Stephanie Jayne, and grew up on the rural borders of Worcestershire and Southwest Birmingham. A taste for acting began in a school production at the age of 7, and it continued right through his mid teens, joining theatrical groups and performing at local theatres including the Birmingham Hippodrome. Playing guitar became a huge interest, with a particular passion for bass when he started art school in the mid 70’s. Playing in several bands throughout his college years and beyond, Keith learned the technical side of stage light and sound. But continued to act with some extra work, for the BBC drama series, Casualty. But his technical skills was the introduction to the world of Broadcast TV, that was to become his home for the next 25 years. Whilst starting out as an editor and eventually supervising a Post dept, Keith could not stay away from being in front of the lens or microphone whenever the opportunity arose, lending his gravelly voice for animated characters and voice-overs. During 2005, whilst in Dubai, an opportunity arose to play a British Ambassador in a gangster fuelled, Pakistani drama series. The acting flame was rekindled, and performing and playing music whenever, was a must. Acting and voice coaching ensued in the following years, and now acting and performing take up most of his time. 2019, and living in Dubai, UAE, he has worked on short films namely, Sound of Two, and feature length films, Stranger, Jackie Chan’s, Vanguard and a Yash Raj Films, Bollywood action movie. All padded out with numerous commercials and ad campaigns. Keith has two beautiful daughters, living in the UK, Michaela Jay, and Rosa Maria. Still playing bass, music continues to play a major feature in his life.
