AUDIO: Ethan Keller – “Carried Away”

It’s been a solid year for Ethan Keller. Amongst other things, he’s played a gig at Summerfest’s Briggs and Stratton Big Backyard, rebranding his own imprint, Driftless Records, and made two trips out west to tour. Today, Keller adds to his 2017 with the release of his new album, “Carried Away”. The album mixes plenty of twangy guitar, piercing horns, and the funkiest of bass lines throughout, similar to Keller’s performances with a full ensemble. There’s also moments where he gets to showcase his musicianship as well, such as the tender instrumental “If You Really Love Me”, in which Keller crafts a lead guitar line to feel like a vocal melody. The combination of lively, yet mellow blues-rock makes this album right for just about any occasion, and that speaks to the songwriting and production behind the making of the project. You can check out the album, as well as purchase it, via Bandcamp below:
