Fall 2015 Old Man Kelly Newsletter

IMG_7466Hi, friends —

Here’s hoping summer has treated you with ease and wellness.  In between beach trips, beekeeping chores, and rounds of chickenshit bingo, I’ve been pecking away at the new record.  It’s slow going because I’m engineering it myself and trying to do it right, but I’m excited about what I’m hearing so far.  My hopes of a fall release are slipping away, so we’re probably looking at a spring 2016 release.  Keep your eyes peeled as I post updates.

In the mean time, I am slammed with gigs for the next month and a half, then traveling internationally for most of November.  So get your local music fix while you can.  Here’s the upcoming schedule through the end of the year:

While I don’t have the new record out yet, you can console yourself and keep your tears cold with the new Old Man Kelly beverage koozies instead.  Come out to a show, and I’ll hand you one for free.  And get off my lawn.
