SK6ERS - “Gravity” Official Animated Video (by SK6ERSOfficial)

There has only been one band that I could/can listen to ALL their albums straight through, and see in concert a million times (each time they put on a different show), and it’s this one. Stop missing out, and start grooving out to the tunes of Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers. #YoureWelcome

Stephen Kellogg and The Sixers - Milwaukee

Moonlight highway
Quicksand trying to pull us off the road
But you don’t succeed by giving up
That’s one thing I know
And I’m sorry you got sick
And that I wasn’t there
And if I acted like a dick
It didn’t mean I didn’t care

And I’ve been chasing dreams in magazines the last ten years
And the way you treat your mother is up to you
But it can’t feel all that good to be so angry
I guess I learned that, too

Jessica is afraid she won’t find love
She says that she’s never home
And just last night I swear I heard her say
“What if I die alone?”
And this broken-hearted attitude
You know it fits right in
To this movie about all of us
That’s waiting to begin

And I’ve been chasing dreams in magazines the last ten years
And the way you treat your lover is is up to you
But it can’t feel all that good to be so jealous
I guess I learned that, too

It will change in time
We’ll feel more alive
‘Cause protection is like a wheel
And the way you sometimes feel
Can make you think that you might even be
The worst person you’ll ever meet
But it’s alright
'Cause we’ve got each other
We got each other
We got each other

And I’ve been chasing dreams in magazines the last ten years
And the way you treat each other is up to you
But it can’t feel all that good to be so scared
I guess I learned that, too
I guess I learned that

Why am I so angry (I guess I learned that)
Why am I so sad (I guess I learned that)
Why am I so contagious (I guess I learned that)
Why is it so good to feel bad
I guess I learned that, too
(Just want to feel)
I guess I learned that, too

Stephen Kellogg & The Sixers - My Favorite Place - Rochester, NY…

This is one of my favourite bands and this is my favourite song off the new album… may have something to do with Serena Ryder singing harmony on the studio recording… I actually did a really good interview with Stephen the day before this video was shot when they played their first headlining show in Toronto at Lee’s Palace… we talked about the new album Gift Horse being a family album and how he was initially self-conscious of the blatant theme in the song writing but how they decided to embrace it… how Gift Horse is about appreciating the fact that they are able to lead the lives they do and not question the gifts or be disappointed if it isn’t more than what it is… we talked about his ability to write very personal, often literal lyrics that end up being sometimes very specific to him and yet still have the ability to be relatable to his audience…

Sadly, that interview will never be seen because immediately after giving the interview, uploading it to my computer and deleting it off my camera, someone who must have been watching me, broke a window in my car, popped the trunk, stole my laptop, my iPod and a sugar-free red bull (not sure if it was because they worked up such a thirst rummaging through my stuff or if they needed the energy for the getaway) …

We are hoping to re-do the interview for Marina Boy entertainment in February… I just have to hope he is as impressed by my questions the second time around haha…
