Folk - Americana

When two of Madison, Wisconsin's most prolific and driven songwriters combine forces, anything can happen. Beth Kille (of The Beth Kille Band and Gin, Chocolate & Bottle Rockets) and Erik Kjelland (of The Mascot Theory) met at a songwriting workshop in 2011 and started writing together in 2013 after reconnecting at one of Kjelland's shows. In 2014 they founded the first annual Flannel Fest, an Americana music celebration raising money for the Keep Wisconsin Warm fund, and later that year they released their first collaborative album entitled Northstar. This collection of original holiday-themed songs earned them the 2015 Madison Area Music Association (MAMA) Award for Unique Album of the Year and Unique Song of the Year. Spurred on by their success, they decided to name their little side project Kerosene Kites and they launched their second record, Under Cover Holiday in 2016, which was an album of re-imagined Christmas cover tunes. After finally running out of holiday spirit, they decided to release an album of their NON-holiday songs in 2017 entitled Float Away. Enlisting the help of their talented musician friends, the 11 songs on this record were recorded over the course of 10 months in 5 different studios, all the way from South Central Wisconsin down to Nashville, TN. Float Away features Art Ranney on bass and Jim Smith on drums, along with guest appearances by Shawndell Marks (keys), Gabe Burdulis (guitar) and Kenny Leiser (of Wheelhouse, on violin/fiddle). Sonically, this album is their most ambitious effort to date and explores the whole gamut of their life experiences; everything from relationship successes and failures, to the challenge of balancing life as a passionate musician with the deep love of their partners and families. Their diversity as songwriters is not only showcased by the array of topics, but by also by the range of musical approaches. Kille and Kjelland kick off the album with "Ascend," an Americana-rock guitar-driven duet
