Invisible is a lot more than just a Covid pandemic piece. Invisible is the end of one thing and the beginning of another. Twelve new original tunes, recorded during  the pandemic make for a unique piece of work at an interesting and pivotal period. 'Invisible' is a  movement into a new phase of life with grown up kids, new opportunities and time to explore. Half of the songs were written pre-Covid and half during. And the songs cover a broad spectrum. The title cut ‘Invisible’ is a talking blues memory of an old friend. The Cuban influenced ‘Malecon’ is written from the perspective of an expat desperate for connection. ‘Kitchen Walls’ is about the marking of time in a family's life. And 'Lost' captures a feeling we all know with a subtle resolution.

All songs were recorded, mixed and produced by Kevin in his basement outside of Boston with tracks floated in from Frank Corby (drums) in Australia, brother James Connolly (fretless bass, toy piano, banjos etc.) in Santa Barbara and many other very talented musicians who lent a hand during this challenging but creatively rich time- including Jeff Allison, Niall Connolly, Todd Thibaud, Frank Arthor Drake, Sarah Mendelsohn, Scott Corneille, Joe Kessler and Chris Rival (who also mastered it).

A collaboration of the brothers Connolly stewed over and compiled during one of the worst winters in Boston history. Kevin Connolly comes back after a five year hiatus with an entirely new sound and approach. Constant is the lyrical attention to detail and storytelling (though despite the title he has strayed from a purely New England perspective), different is the compelling layers of sonic touches provided by brother James and long-time co-producer and friend Ducky Carlisle.

Take a listen to Kevin Connolly's new recording “North/East” and find out why critics have long championed this American singer/songwriter. With his ninth CD release, Kevin returns to a stripped down sound featuring a wide range of American roots influences and his talented band. Connolly has a way of combining blues, folk, country and Americana influences to create a sound that is distinctly his own. The subject matter on "North/East" comes from his backyard and includes songs about old mill towns (“Fall River”), fishing disasters (“Fishing Life”), battle roads (“Battle Roads”), and a car that will take you there (“Chevy Impala”). Ballads go deep in the story of a returning vet in “Mass Ave," and mysteries prevail in “Let’s Say You Do” and the swampy “Living On The Street.” Sole guest Dennis Brennan contributes blistering harp and backing vocals on the voyeuristic “Window,” while Chris Rival holds it all together with his natural and warm production style.

VIOLIN SIRENS

Violin Sirens (The Lost Cassette)

‘Violin Sirens’ (The Lost Cassette) is a live recording made one snowy day, twenty five years ago. Having just moved back from Italy, I was a little lost.

‘Violin Sirens’ (The Lost Cassette) is a live recording made one snowy day, twenty five years ago. Having just moved back from Italy, I was a little lost. Waiting tables in Harvard Square and gearing up for several years of solo touring, I had leftovers in the form of ‘band’ songs. And I had a band full of giants: the late Steven Paul Perry on guitar (right off a tour with John Hiatt), Frank Corby on drums, Tom Sheppard on bass and on blues harp Jim Fitting (Sessions Americana, The The, Treat Her Right). We didn’t practice much and did no overdubs. Ducky Carlisle recorded the whole thing in a rat infested band rehearsal space next to Fenway Park. We went live to ½ inch tape, to DAT, then cassette. Yes, cassettes. When a friend gave us a very old car (with a cassette deck) I listened to these songs, very loud for a good part of last summer! So... here it is digitally re-mastered version (not really) with original artwork of ‘Violin Sirens’- enjoy!
