THE BACKSTORY.

One day, Holly and Ken met at a busy airport. She flew to Minnesota. He flew to Texas. Four years later, after not talking at all, she sent him a copy of Maps and Lists, her debut solo album recorded and produced by John Vanderslice at Tiny Telephone. Ken wrote to her and was like, “Your record's great! What’s next?” Holly was like, “Lots of stuff!" They played some shows together and then, almost as a dare, he said to her, “Let’s make a country record in France!” And she was like, “Okay!”

Which brings us to Holly & Ken, The Record, an indie country opera (of sorts), telling the story of two ne’er-do-wells from Ken’s song, “Doesn’t It Remind You Of Something.” This concept album, an homage to Willie Nelson's 1975 classic record, The Red Headed Stranger, features performances by Vicki Peterson (of The Bangles), Matthew Caws (of Nada Surf), Keren Ann, Shelby Earl, and Seattle-legend, Country Dave Harmonson.

Holly and Ken are currently running a successful Pledge Music campaign to offset costs for recording and, this fall, are embarking on a thirty-city North American tour to promote The Record. The Road Show will also showcase songs from #2 Record, HOLLY's sophomore solo album, again recorded and produced by John Vanderslice at Tiny Telephone. This double LP features Ken as a player and guest artist, as well as performances by Alan Sparhawk (of Low), Andy Stochansky (of Ani DiFranco), John Hermanson (of Storyhill), and Brian Tighe (of The Hangups).
