ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
NYC based singer and songwriter Kelsey has been the proud vocalist, screamer and aural manipulator for the Alt-Rock band pILLOW tHEORY for years. A former NJ preppie nerd that trained in classical voice as well as jazz guitar and theory who turned goth, then punk, and eventually blended all of his personalities to finally become well, himself.

With his first solo release "Nylon & Steel 1", we see the Rock God peel back his layers and we get to experience his lighter side. In this setting Kelsey is raw, enigmatic and exposed. With a stripped down sound we get to experience the beauty that is Kelsey. Truly one of the most unique and versatile vocalists of our time Kelsey's sound on the "Nylon & Steel 1" EP can be described as "Dave Matthews meets Seal".

The sparse and beautifully lo-fi "Nylon & Steel 1" came about because whenever Kelsey needed some fresh inspiration, he would perform solo shows for pILLOW songs and would also break down the older material to its bare songwriting core. Kelsey feels that though it's a change from his heavier pILLOW concerts he always keeps his solo vibe as alive as one guy with a guitar and a microphone can. Until this point, Kelsey had never documented these shows or released a body of work that represents their unique sound.

"Nylon & Steel" will be a 2 EP project. This album is the first of the set, both of which will be released in 2010. Kelsey says, "The songs chosen for this first EP are all inspired by the women who sculpted me into a better person. I've been known to write some pretty dark stuff in my life and I wanted to put together a body of work that was more on the lighter, 'I'm enjoying life and the people around me' side when I felt the time was right. When the second "Nylon & Steel" EP is released later this year, it will probably sound dark as all hell! Where there's a yin..."

The product is a dazzling bare bones and beautiful ode to love and growth. The lighter side of this double EP is ready to go! On "Nylon & Steel" Kelsey has once again proven himself to be a virtuoso songwriter and singer within any musical setting.
