Stephen Kellogg

In the great American tradition of musical troubadour and documentarians of society, Stephen Kellogg has been furrowing the great American roads with his band the Sixers and their brand of American rock and roll for the past decade. During that time, he has grown successful to the point of recognition of his artistic insights, to be asked to do a TED talk, which are only reserved for respected important artists and innovators. His theme relies on the realization that “it was better to be at the bottom of a ladder you want to climb, than at the top of one you don’t”.

It is striking that having lived through a challenging and changing moment in life in 2012, including the decision of the band to take a hiatus, the musical result of this tumultuous period is "Blunderstone Rookery" which also coincides with a desire to visit England and plough his musical stories over there.

The title of the album “Blunderstone Rookery” comes from the boyhood home of Kellogg’s favorite character in his favorite book, “David Copperfield”. The original title of which was "The Personal History, Adventures, Experience and Observation of David Copperfield the Younger of Blunderstone Rookery (Which He Never Meant to Publish on Any Account". The production of the album was shared with longtime collaborator Kit Karlson and recorded in Bridgeport Connecticut - near home and mixed by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Monsters of Folk) It comprises 11 songs including the epic masterpiece “Thanksgiving” a 10 minute song that sums up the life of a man from birth to death, touching on love, marriage, raising a family, sickness, old age and mortality and underlines the record’s overall themes of hope, redemption and forgiveness.

The Saint Johns

The Saint Johns is Florida natives Louis Johnson and Jordan Meredith. By combining haunting, harmonic melodies with striking vocal arrangements, The Saint Johns produce a truly unique sound. Having recently relocated to Nashville, the pair are in the midst of tying up their first full-length album. In the mean time, they are excited to share their brand new, free "Live EP" with the world (download at their website). Most recently featured on the "Nashville Indie Spotlight" compilation, their song immediately stood out among the pack as the most popular single on the album.
