Stephen Kellogg Announces New Album 'Blunderstone Rookery' Released 12th August 2013

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 realisation 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  co incides with a desire to visit England and  plough his musical stories over here.   Stephen will be introducing his album due for release in the UK on August 12th on Bread and Butter Music,  by a special live Performance on July 11th at the Barfly.

The title of the album " Blunderstone Rookery" comes from the boyhood home of  Kellogg's favourite character in his favourite 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 long time 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.
