(2005) A year in the making, Haymaker Heart documents Kelly’s musical and physical journey from Iowa City to East Nashville. This near double album was his most ambitious work to date and a wonderful genre hop from the alt-country of his previous two releases. Still plenty of roots on this 20 track opus, but some lush pop/rock goodies as well. An all-star cast of veteran musicians including Dave Moore and Teddy Morgan lend their talents to this album produced by KP and John Svec. "Draw the Line" was featured in the Nicolas Cage film Vengeance! Seven songs from this album have been featured in film and television.

ARCHIVE

Kelly Pardekooper

(1998) ARCHIVE is a collection of loose ends. I needed some of the songs from my first lo-fi basement demo release 30-Weight to be re-recorded in broadcast quality for TV/Film options. ARCHIVE ended up being a few new songs written in 2019 and a few of those older songs that I just couldn't let disappear. I also threw in a couple song nods to my Iowa City mentors/friends Bo Ramsey and Greg Brown. Recorded mostly live in Bloomington, Indiana with Paul Mahern producing at his house studio. All CD and Download sales in 2019 went to United Action For Youth in my Iowa City hometown:) A great non-profit organization where I did my first recordings when I was young. I had a ball making this spare little release. It gave me a chance to get headphone reverb weird again and revisit the loose and live recording style that first inspired me many years ago in my Iowa basement.
