Todd Kessler and the New Folk-Sea Fever

The past year has been a remarkable one for Chicago singer-songwriter Todd Kessler--he was featured on season three of The Voice and he and his band, the New Folk, have performed locally and toured regionally (playing well-received shows most recently in Austin, Nashville and Tulsa). Kessler has been so busy, in fact, that last year's Sea Fever is just starting to get the attention that it deserves on radio and via online music sites.

Sea Fever offers up twelve tracks of accessible, yet ethereal, folk pop that will appeal to fans of Ray LaMontagne, Matt Nathanson and Rachael Yamagata. Highlights include the delicate, piano-driven country rock of "Oh Brother," the breathtaking "Intangible" and "Halleluljah," a track that shares a title and spiritual DNA with that song written by Leonard Cohen and made famous by Jeff Buckley.

Todd Kessler and the New Folk headline a show at Tonic Room on Saturday, April 6.
