No Depression - "Somewhere is Right Here, Right Now, and Superb"

'Somewhere'+album+cover+photo+by+bon+jane.png

Connor Kennedy’s new record is excellent.  There, that’s the lede, and it’s all you need.  Just go listen, on repeat.

I’ve been enjoying Kennedy’s music since he was a young teenager, playing in the Saugerties-Kingston-Woodstock, New York area where he grew up.  A couple of years ago, I profiled him for ND, as his star was really on the rise.  Since then, there’s only more to add to his thick résumé:  touring with the Gipsy Kings and The Waterboys, organizing the lineup for Bob Dylan’s annual birthday benefit concert in Woodstock, and setting forth this August with Donald Fagen and The Nightflyers for a tour of America and Japan.  And now, released last night on a beautiful July evening in a historic church in New York State’s first capital city, this gorgeous album of Kennedy’s original songs, Somewhere.  He is just 22 years old.  Stand back, y’all, and watch him go.

Musicians from his age and up, including the leading lights of earlier generations in Woodstock, join Kennedy to make the sound of Somewhere.  On this record you will find his friends:  Amy Helm, Jay Collins, Ruthy Ungar, Lindsay Webster, Lee Falco, John Sebastian.

Donald Fagen --musician, composer, vocalist, producer, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, and co-founder of Steely Dan and The Dukes of September-- has a new special project taking to the road this summer: Donald Fagen and The Nightflyers. Set to begin on August 3rd and 4th at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, the U.S. tour leg will hit more than 20 cities before wrapping at The Masonic in San Francisco on Sept. 16. Following the U.S. dates, the band will travel to Japan for select performances (see below for full itinerary). On tour, Donald Fagen and The Nightflyers will play songs from Fagen’s celebrated solo albums, Steely Dan hits, plus, as promised by Fagen, “some swell surprises.”

Joining Fagen (keyboard, vocals) is an all new band –the Nightflyers- a quartet of young musicians that Donald has been working with over the past few years near his home in Woodstock, NY. The Nightflyers are Connor Kennedy (guitar, vocals), Lee Falco (drums, vocals), Brandon Morrison (bass, vocals) and Will Bryant (keyboards, vocals). Previously, the foursome have been performing together in haunts, joints, dives, and even a few reputable establishments, up and down New York’s Hudson River Valley and beyond.
