Bridging the classic and the contemporary, songwriter/guitarist Seth Kessel puts a modern spin on his penchant for classic rock ‘n roll. Inspired by everything from from Elvis Presley, Howlin' Wolf, Johnny Cash, Django Reinhardt, to The Clash, and Bad Brains, the influences are abundant on his latest album Ride on Through, released June 2021.
Born in New York City and raised in Brooklyn, Kessel is a well traveled songwriter, singer and guitar player with an extensive background in his field. While having a widespread professional music career in various bands and as a producer/studio engineer with notable success, his focus lies in the interpretation of mid-century American roots music, particularly 1950’s rock ‘n’ roll, classic country, and early jazz. His richly toned voice, virtuosic guitar playing and powerful songwriting make him a triple threat. His songwriting runs the gamut from clever and witty lyrics to hardship.
