at City Winery New York City



Bar Stool





Over  the  last  decade,  Connecticut  native  Stephen  Kellogg  has  performed

more  than  1500

concerts  around  the  world,  raised  thousands  of  dollars  f

or  causes  close  to  his  heart,  been

named  Armed  Forces  Entertainer  of  the  Year,  and  penned  singles  for

artists  like  "American  Idol"

winner  Nick  Fradiani  and  the  platinum  selling  rock  band  O.A.

R.  Stephen

s  most  recent  writing

work  with  legendary  guitarist  Robert  Randolph,  has  led  to  a  2

017  Grammy  nomination  for  "Best

Contemporary  Blues  Record."  He's  also  had  his  songs  covered  by

international  major  label  acts

and  released  eight  albums  of  his  own  that  have  yielded  hundreds

 of  thousands  of  ticket  and

album  sales.

When  it  comes  to  performing,  CBS  radio  has  called  him  "the  bes

t  live  act  you've  never  seen"

and  another  writer  for

No  Depression

 gives  him  the  oddly  flattering  title  "the  best  songwriter

you're  not  listening  to."  Filmmaker  Peter  Harding  was  so  moved  by

the  underground  nature  of

Stephen's  story  that  he  made  a  documentary  called  "Last  Man  Standing"  wh

ich  went  on  to

become  an  Amazon  exclusive  film.  In  recent  years  he

s  added  speaking  to  his  resume

delivering  a  Tedx  Talk  on  job  satisfaction,  the  key  note  speech

for  the  prestigious  photography

summit  WRKSHP,  and  garnering  an  invitation  to  speak  to  the  stud

ents  at  Columbine  High

School  in  Littleton,  CO  on  the  topics  of  social  justice  and

 'finding  your  voice.'

While  it's  true  that  Kellogg  may  not  currently  be  a  household

 name  to  everyone,  he  has

persisted  in  building  a  substantial  career  that  has  landed  him

onstage  with  some  of  the  biggest


d  best  touring  bands  in  the  world  (Train,  Sugarland,  Jason

Isbell,  Sara  Bareilles,  and  Hanson  to

name  a  few.)  Kellogg's  music  has  found  its  way  onto  the  Billbo

ard  charts  and  been  featured  in

numerous  films  and  TV  shows.  His  Americana-tinged,  folk,  po

p,  and  rock  stylings  can  make  his

sound  hard  to  define,  but  to  his  core,  this  musician  and

 father  of  four  brings  heart  and

incredible  energy  to  everything  he  does.
