Born in Winson Green, Keenan attended Archbishop Grimshaw Roman Catholic school. After school she worked in various catering jobs and at the age of 21 moved to the bohemian enclave of Moseley, forming a folk duo called Hayward Winters before she met James Cargill at a 1960s psychedelic revival club in Birmingham. The pair bonded over shared interests and formed a band, Pan Am Flight Bag, who played two gigs before they regrouped as Broadcast.
Keenan had one of the most distinctive voices in modern music and was a visionary thinker with a vast appetite for discovering new inspirations.
On her return from the band's first Australian tour in December 2010, Keenan was diagnosed with pneumonia and went into hospital.
