Ruston Kelly - October 2018

The Artist To Watch for October is Nashville based singer-songwriter Ruston Kelly.
He recently released his debut full length record, Dying Star. A confessional singer-songwriter, his debut album is a collection of songs on which he exorcises his demons in search of personal redemption and salvation. Kelly has a warm, weary voice that plays both weary and tender, and he’s got more than a knack for writing tuneful songs. Kelly is also part of the recent NPR Slingshot class.

He plays Boot & Saddle on Friday October 26th.
