Patricia Anne "Trish" Keenan (28 September 1968 – 14 January 2011) was a musician from Winson Green, Birmingham. She was the lead vocalist and founding member of Broadcast. She died of complications after suffering from pneumonia shortly after she contracted swine flu while touring in Australia.
Trish Keenan was born in Winson Green, a multicultural inner-city area in west Birmingham. She attended Archbishop Grimshaw Roman Catholic school, presently known as John Henry Newman Catholic school. She worked a range of catering jobs after school until at the age of 21 she moved to Moseley, a bohemian enclave. Soon after she formed a duo called Hayward Winters and soon after met James Cargill at a 1960s psychedelic revival club. The two of them formed a relationship over their shared interest and formed a band, Pan Am Flight Bag. The band was short-lived only performing two gigs before they reformed in 1996 as Broadcast, which included guitarist Tim Felton, drummer Steve Perkins, and keyboardist Roj Stevens.
During a tour in Australia just before Christmas, Trish contracted the swine flu virus H1N1. It was reported that she died in a hospital. A statement by Warp Record Label said: "This is an untimely, tragic loss and we will miss Trish dearly - a unique voice, an extraordinary talent and a beautiful human being. Rest in peace."
