Blue Street Walls
Blue Street Walls came about sometime in 2018 as the collaboration between myself (Will James) & Lauren Bacon. We sat down at a local bar where Lauren was working and played through a few songs. We had very different styles and it was not one of those moments where either one of thought “Wow! This is going to be great!”. But as we continued playing, we started writing our own material. The close harmonies and songwriting continued to develop and it was only after a few months that both of us realized there was something very special happening. We played a few shows throughout the year and decided to record an album. We went to PonderRosa Studios in Lafayette, New Jersey this October and laid down the songs. I can’t even begin to state how proud I am of the result. We are currently mixing the album and will be releasing the album officially on January 1, 2019. Stay tuned to our page for news and more music! Special thanks to everyone who has been a part of this project, Lauren Bacon, Andy Sheldon, Michael Hornbuckle, Billy Mutchler, Karl Dietel, Tom Askin, Joe Webster, Jamey Bartley, Jock Bartley, Mark Andes, Tyler Duffus, Al Laughlin, and Sean Kelly.
Sean Kelly (of The Samples)
Sean Kelly & The Samples
25 years after starting his full fledged music career with The Samples, Sean Kelly continues to delight fans with music that transcends genres, age and shatters the rules of the established music industry. Throughout his career, Sean has been the driving influence of 20 albums and over 1 million records sold.
Sean started playing guitar at age 16 listening to Neil Young, Rolling Stones and Jackson Browne. Those influences mixed with his own poignant and timeless lyrics, a unique and striking voice and a mind for melodies led to songs like Little Silver Ring, Feel Us Shaking and Wild River. For many fans, these aren’t new songs or old songs, but anthems to their lives that represent the first time they met their wife or the joys of their times at college.
The Samples are more than a band – they represent a culture of fans and music that go beyond who happens to be playing in the band at any given time. There have been many members of The Samples, but Sean Kelly has been the consistent factor throughout all of the changes.
Sean’s journeys across America have taken place in rental cars, tour buses and pickup trucks that would have literally taken him to the moon and back over the last quarter of a century. There is a lot of music in store in 2018 and beyond from Sean Kelly and The Samples.
