Hello dear friends! Keeley here- welcome to official launch of Blackkettlemusic.com! We’ve been getting ready for this launch for a loonnnggg time and we’re so excited that its finally here! Thanks to our good friend Ivar Vong, who has made all of this crazy magician like web stuff happen.. check out his many talents here.
As for us, we’ve been busy graduating college, moving across the country and completely starting over in a crazy city called Los Angeles….
…..Taken from Keeley’s iphone one a lovely hike through Runyon Canyon
Kailynn and I live in a little apartment (very reminiscent of our multiple Boston ones) in an awesome neighborhood called Silverlake.
A view from our roof..
Silverlake is a great little neighborhood.. nestled between Los Feliz & Echo Park- it tends to be the perfect distance from both Hollywood & Downtown. Lots of coffee shops, vintage clothing stores & record shops… in other words.. A Hipster’s Haven… the Brooklyn of LA, if you will. But we like it
We’ve been working like crazy since we’ve arrived (been here almost 6 months now!) ..and in those 6 months we recorded and released a new 4 song EP! We had the pleasure of working with our good friend and super talented producer/engineer Will Kennedy. Everything is explained in this video link below.. including tracking at the legendary Sound City Studios with the amazing Eric Holden on bass, and Josh Florian of JCF Audio (who’s custom gear is all over our record) on drums! Also overdubbing at Studio P & Mastering with Grammy award winning, Robert Hadley at the Mastering Lab in Ojai, CA.
We’re very proud of this record and hope that you enjoy it when it comes out! It should be up on iTunes within the next few weeks and of course for sale at our shows
Speaking of shows…We’re going to SXSW (South By South West Music Fesitval) In Austin, TX again this year! We have 5 confirmed shows, with a few more in the works! We’re very excited to reconnect with old friends from Boston and meet up with some of our new LA friends out there as well!
Here are the gigs as they currently stand….
Hope to see you guys out there!
Thanks for checking out the website, we’re super addicted to Twitter now too, so if you feel so inclined, we should totally follow eachother.. jus sayin’… (@loveblackkettle)
