A Fragile Tomorrow's Dom Kelly Set To Release Debut Solo Album
Features Grammy Award-Winning Guest Artists
PRE-ORDER NOW! MPress Records is excited to announce that our very own Dom Kelly, drummer and vocalist for the Independent Music Award-winning band A Fragile Tomorrow, will release his debut solo album Everything Is Just Enough on April 7, 2017!
With five albums, a handful of Grammy pre-nominations and an Independent Music Award later, Kelly now steps out from behind the drum kit and unveils Everything Is Just Enough. Produced and engineered by his brother and AFT bandmate Brendan Kelly, the songs often echo the cool indie charm of Duncan Sheik while incorporating the sparkling, sinuous harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel. But he had a little assistance too, as Kelly reveals:
“I had wanted to do a solo album for a long time,” Kelly says, “ but my insecurities around songwriting held me back. Finally, I decided to jump into it, and I called all the friends I ever wanted to record with and asked them to help me out.”
The album features guest appearances by luminaries such as Emily Saliers (Indigo Girls), Lucy Wainwright Roche, Sarah Bettens (K's Choice), Dorris Muramatsu (Girlyman), Chris Trapper (Push Stars) and AFT's Sean Kelly.

MPress Releases Rachael Sage's New Socially Conscious EP
All Net Proceeds To Benefit American Refugee Committee
MPress Records announces the release of award-winning singer, songwriter, producer and activist Rachael Sage's new EP of protest songs, The Tide. The 5-track digital EP adds Sage's voice and music to the current worldwide protests and public demonstrations, seeking justice for all in a turbulent sociopolitical landscape. All net proceeds will be donated to ArcRelief.org (American Refugee Committee), one of the world's leading international refugee assistance organizations.
Fresh off the heels of a lengthy tour of both the US and Europe supporting her 2016 full-length album Choreographic, Sage returns to her folk roots with this collection of timely protest songs. The Tide began with a desire to find universal threads of compassion in response to tragedy. The release includes topical subject matter related to the Orlando shooting, Elie Wiesel’s passing, the Syrian refugee crisis and the controversial 2016 US Presidential election. Sage states:
“Like so many of my artist peers, each of these intense and often overwhelming situations sparked so many emotions and crystallized my need to respond musically in a more traditional, folk-driven way. At their essence, these are protest songs I wish I hadn’t had to write.”
Available now on iTunes!
