Keith Mina Caputo (born 4 December 1973) is the lead singer of the New York metal band Life of Agony.

Career

Caputo started Life of Agony in 1989 with guitarist Joey Z and bassist Alan Robert. Drummer Sal Abruscato was recruited soon afterwards. After signing with Roadrunner Records, they debuted with the 1993 album River Runs Red. Shortly after the release of a third album in 1997, Caputo claimed that her heart was no longer in the type of music they performed and left the group.

After leaving the group, Caputo formed with Absolute Bloom, but that band broke up in July 1998. Later, Caputo helped to re-form the Brazilian band Freax, which had broken up over ten years earlier. They developed a self-titled album in 2003.

Caputo also worked extensively on a solo career in the 1990s and released two studio albums.

The original line-up of Life of Agony reunited for two sold-out shows at New York's Irving Plaza on January 3 and 4, 2003. The reunion resulted in several more shows and appearances on European festivals, as well as the recording of Broken Valley (2005), the band's first new material since 1997.

In 2003, Caputo formed a group consisting of New York musicians Mike Shaw (Bass) and Dan Platt (guitars) along with Dutch musicians Jochem Van Rooijen (drums) and Jack Pisters (lead guitars) that toured and recorded what became the album Live Monsters (2004).

In 2005, Caputo provided vocals for the song "Tired N' Lonely" on the Roadrunner United: The All-Star Sessions album.

On May 1, 2006, Keith Caputo released her third solo album Hearts Blood On Your Dawn which was only sold at her live shows, via mailorder through her website, and in the iTunes Store.

In 2007, Caputo recorded a fourth solo album, A Fondness For Hometown Scars, which includes a guest appearance by Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on trumpet, amongst others. During 2008 she toured in support of this release, with a band composed of Dutch musicians Ryan Oldcastle (guitars), Axel van Oort (bass guitar), and Jochem van Rooijen (drums). The album was produced by Martyn LeNoble, and was released in Europe in April 2008 by Dutch label Suburban Records.

Caputo participated as a guest singer on Dutch symphonic metal band Within Temptation's track "What Have You Done", the first single (and second track) from their 2007 album, The Heart of Everything.

Keith also guested on the track "Free Speech (Will Cost You)" on the album Memory Rendered Visible by the band Both Worlds released on Roadrunner Records. He also provided additional backing vocals on Type O Negative's release Bloody Kisses.


Personal

In July 2011, after performing for more than twenty years as a man, Caputo announced plans to transition from male to female and began referring to herself with female pronouns.
