Keller & The Keels have a new CD coming out on Sci-Fidelity next month called Thief. There’s a killer cover of “Rehab” on it as well as “Teen Angst” CDs being sent shortly.
“This isn’t your grandfather’s bluegrass – this is Keller bluegrass. And, as with everything else this guitarist/vocalist/mad scientist does, that translates to lots of goofy humor and twisty turns.” – LiveDaily
“As we first reported on our sister site Jambands.com, Keller Williams, Larry Keel and Jenny Keel are set to release their follow up to 2005’s Grass. That disc featured three Williams originals along with seven covers. The trio entered the studio again this past December and recorded an album that focuses exclusively on cover material. Thief offers bluegrass interpretations of music from The Butthole Surfers, Ryan Adams, Amy Winehouse, The Raconteurs, Marcy Playground, The Presidents of the United States and Kris Kristofferson. The disc will be released on May 25, with Keller & The Keels now confirmed to support Thief through a number of festival gigs, with additional gigs possible as well.”—Relix
Paste’s Ten Jam-Band Moments for People who Hate Jam Bands:
4. “Keller Williams’ stage show: Most jams involve lots of intricate parts played by many different players. A Keller Williams show involves lots of intricate parts played by Keller Williams. The lightning-fast guitarist endlessly loops his playing onstage using a handful of pedals, eventually creating a veritable symphony of frenetic melodies. Think Andrew Bird (complete with whistling), but danceable.”
“Keller Williams’ latest studio release, ‘thief’, serves as a follow-up to his highly acclaimed 2006 release of anything-but-traditional bluegrass songs, ‘grass’–Amazon.com
