New York, NY - October 13, 2017: Independent Music Award winner and singer/multi-instrumentalist Sean Kelly has released his debut solo album, Time Bomb, Baby, today via MPress Records. Kelly will perform at his album release party tonight at The Royal American in Charleston, SC with Peter Holsapple (the dBs) and Finnegan Bell.
As the lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter for the critically acclaimed, award--winning band A Fragile Tomorrow, Kelly has now carved out his individual artistic path and emerged with enchanting songs that simmer with a smart, sensual glam.
Time Bomb, Baby is a heady explosion of lushly layered indie-pop that floats between charming quirkiness and a muscular sonic sensibility. The songs lovingly pay respect to 80s auteurs such as Bryan Ferry, Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush while firmly riding a futuristic wave of swirling harmonies, shapeshifting guitars and thoroughly modern songwriting. David Bowie's longtime bassist Gail Ann Dorsey guests on the album and Kelly played almost every instrument on the collection.
Popdose Magazine premiered the first video, "Syncopation", in September and his fall tour kicks off tonight. Full tour routing below. Time Bomb, Baby is available on iTunes and all major music platforms.
ABOUT SEAN KELLY: As the lead singer, guitarist and songwriter for the critically acclaimed, award-winning band A Fragile Tomorrow, Kelly’s own story began as one of identical triplets born with Cerebral Palsy. Tragedy first struck when one brother passed at a young age, which inspired Kelly to form his power-pop group, A Fragile Tomorrow, with his twin Dom and their younger brother Brendan. As teens, the group toured relentlessly with major artists like Indigo Girls, The Bangles and Toad The Wet Sprocket. The band released five albums including 2015’s Make Me Over (MPress Records), which earned an Independent Music Award for their collaboration with distant relative Joan Baez. Armed with a fresh perspective and an exuberant determination, Kelly has now struck out on his own and released his debut solo album, Time Bomb, Baby. The collection is a stroke of bold, modern romanticism that is both an homage to vintage alt-pop and a leap into the future that continues to push the musical envelope.
