Keram's professional acting debut was in the role of Oliver! in Toronto for which he received widespread acclaim and went on to do roles in Mame and Evita for the same theater. By the age of ten Keram was busy recording radio dramas for the CBC and launched his music career, singing on various records and even recording a full length album at fourteen in South America which was signed to a major label there and had two songs charting on the radio. At fourteen Keram was nominated for a Dora Mavor Moore Award (Canada's Tony) for his performance in an adaptation of Mark Twain's 'The Prince and the Pauper'. At fifteen, he met Keith White on a sitcom pilot, 'Cutting Loose' and the two formed the band Blue Dog Pict for which Keram was the frontman for seven years. The band released three albums and toured across North America, charting in the top ten on several dozen College radio stations. At seventeen Keram scored a lead role on the Franklin Waterman produced series "Catwalk" (1992) with co-stars Paul Popowich and Neve Campbell. He also founded Constant Change, an independent record label and production company which produced two videos for the band, one of which received the largest request in MuchMusic history. Keram played the title role of Chris Black in Skin Deep (1994) which won the People's Choice award at the Berlin film festival and was also an official selection at the Toronto Film Festival a year later. Keram went on to play roles in such films as American History X (1998), Happy Campers (2001) and John Q (2002). Known not only as an actor, but as what Lenny Stoute of the Toronto Star calls 'a one man cultural blitzkrieg' Keram's interest in acting, performing music, film scoring, record producing, writing, multimedia design and production and film making continues to provoke his audience, fans 'devout to the point of being cultish' and raise questions.
