Brand New Bag

So my new CD Brand New Bag is now available in Europe via the wonderful folks at Sonic Rendezvous Records in Holland. The CD was produced by Teddy Morgan in East Nashville and features the original artwork of Gene Flores. The CD is packaged as a matte finished digipak to best represent the artwork.

If you order from the U.S. it’s going to cost you about $24 as the euro is currently kicking the dollars booty. Sonic Rendezvous actually put up the dough for me to get off the pot and finish this new album, so they get it first over the pond…supply and demand baby.

I will probably have some copies to sell at shows in Iowa City and Madison pretty soon. If you just can’t wait one second more for my hands down best album to date, recorded on fat 2” tape with amazing players, mastered by Richard Dodd (Tom Petty, Steve Earle), blah blah blah…then go ahead and support a great company that is actually investing in my music. You can order securely right now at Sonic Rendezvous. Here’s the fancy label promo info below. See ya soon…KP

BRAND NEW BAG
Kelly Pardekooper is unleashing his fifth studio album, Brand New Bag. Released and distributed in Europe by Dutch label Sonic Rendezvous, Brand New Bag finds our Iowa singer/songwriter producing his most confident and beautiful work. Recorded and produced in East Nashville by longtime friend, guitar slinger, and partner in vibe Teddy Morgan, Brand New Bag was tracked to 2” analog tape at the East Barrio studio. Old friends and new ringers from the bands of John Doe, Junior Brown, Jo Dee Messina and Greg Brown help round out the core players of Teddy Morgan, Richard Medek and Kelly Pardekooper. Gorgeously packaged with the original art of Gene Flores, Brand New Bag travels from lush to rock to folk to alt-country seamlessly and effortlessly.
