Over the last decade, New England native Stephen Kellogg has performed more than 1500 concerts, raised thousands of dollars for causes close to his heart, been named Armed Forces Entertainer of the Year, and penned singles for artists ranging from rock band O.A.R. to American Idol winner Nick Fradiani. His most recent writing work, with legendary guitarist Robert Randolph, resulted in a 2017 Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Blues Record. His songs have been covered by international artists, while he’s released ten studio albums of his own. His latest, Objects in the Mirror, was recorded in Nashville by Will Hoge, and features twelve songs that explore American life in 2018. “I wanted to make an album that felt like the ones I grew up loving — Bob Seger and Cat Stevens, Tom Petty and Rod Stewart. Emotional records where the songs relate to each other and the lyrics are front and center. That’s my true north.” Kellogg’s emotion has never been in question. Whether performing solo or with a band, his soul and energy fuel one of the most dynamic shows anywhere. His “beautifully written songs and engaging personality” have been praised by The Michigan Daily. “Kellogg appears as if he was born on stage, taking the spotlight and using it to his advantage, but never letting go of his connection with the audience.”
