14 November 2021

Who: The solo project of Oakland-based singer,
songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Brian Kelly.
He brings a unique pop sensibility to bittersweet
songs of heartbreak, loss, and longing.

Recent work: New album Thirteen Songs About
Driving Nowhere in Alphabetical Order
, released
last September.

Focus track: MONTEREY – opening track of the LP

“A tribute to my big sister who I lost last year. I hope you enjoy
it and it provides some comfort for any loss you’ve experienced.”

Monterey is a heartfelt ode to a beloved one that passed away,
evoking recognizable, universal feelings of loss, mourning and
tristesse. Many of us who lost someone precious have a specific
song that they associate with that dearly missed person, and I
guess when you’re a songwriter it must be so more special if you
can write one yourself as a lasting memory of the one you lost.

It’s not your fault, It’s not your fault
We are prone
To accidents
Close to home

Now that you’re here check out the full album.
Trust me, it’s time well spent, certainly when
you’re a War On Drugs fan…
