Stephen Kellogg Announces September 2013 Tour Dates

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.
