Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers

In the past two years, Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers have traveled across the country on the “Homecoming Queen Conspiracy Tour,” playing almost 300 shows to promote their self-titled debut album now out on Foundations Records. Performing is nothing new for front man Kellogg, who has been a rocker since his high school days after music trumped his other ambition —to be an actor. His lyrics speak of the hardships of relationships in plain words, sung with an honesty that truly captures listeners. The Sixers back him up with subtle but captivating sounds that complement Kellogg’s lyrics perfectly, not to mention the album’s special guest appearances by the likes of Braddigan from Dispatch, Mike Daly from Whiskeytown, and Rich Price and Rob James from the Clarks. Kellogg and the Sixers play an 8pm show at Mohawk Place on Tuesday (Sept 26). —lisa cialfa
