Stephen Kellogg Closes Out Tour at The Bowery Ballroom

November 29th, 2013

Stephen Kellogg’s childhood interests in music included singer-songwriter fare, like that of Jim Croce and Cat Stevens, alongside hair-metal bands, like Bon Jovi and Mötley Crüe, which probably explains why his songs are intimate and personal while his live shows with the Sixers have always been energetic and passionate. But at the end of last year, the SK6ers went on hiatus, affording Kellogg (above, playing “Thanksgiving” in studio for KINK FM in Portland, Ore.) the opportunity to record his first solo LP in a decade, Blunderstone Rookery (stream it below), labeled “a vibrant album” in a positive review from The Telegraph. Kellogg has been touring ever since with Ryan “Jetpack” Hommel, Chip Johnson and Marco Meneghin, and the North American leg of the tour ends tomorrow night at The Bowery Ballroom. Come on out and be part of the celebration.
