Ken Stringfellow & HOLLY Announce New Record on PledgeMusic

2015 March 30

Ken Stringfellow and Holly are making a country album through the crowdfunding site PledgeMusic. Get involved here! A message from Ken & Holly with more information on the project below.

Howdy!

We (Ken Stringfellow and HOLLY) are thrilled to be embarking on a musical odyssey the likes of which anyone (well, at least neither of us) has seen.

This April, we’re spending one month at Ken’s studio in perfectly-sunlit Tours, France working on a response to Willie Nelson’s 1975 pièce de résistance, The Red Headed Stranger. Where Willie’s demanding collection of brief, interwoven song-poems and standards followed an outlaw preacher on the run after murdering his wife and her lover, our project, The Record: A Country Concept Album tells the story of two hopeless reprobates, ne’er-do-wells you can’t help but love, cousins or in-laws you, admit it, wished had a reality show on Bravo.

We’re calling our project The Record: A Country Concept Album and we want you to join in on the adventure! Simply pre-order here, and you’ll get to see what’s happening behind-the-scenes as we write and record the new songs. Follow a pledger-only blog about our experiences in France, and so much more. You can also order some unique experiences and merchandise in the store below. Everything from vinyl, used cowboy belts, and highly collectible paint-by-number paintings to a trip to Ken’s studio in France and cowboy hat shopping in Nashville!

Thank you so much for you support. We can’t wait to create this album with you.

Sincerely,

Ken & Holly

Update on Ken – The Movie, by Claudia Rorarius

2014 March 26

Filmmaker Claudia Rorarius has been working on a fictional film starring Ken Stringfellow, using a “unique working method, while interweaving fiction and reality seamlessly.” Claudia provided an update to the project on her Tumblr this week:

So the basic plot of the fictional film is: Ken is on tour through the US. But the people and places don’t seem to be nice to him. The shows are not going well. His nerves are at breaking point. One morning, when he wakes up, his voice is gone. Helpless of the situation he has a nervous breakdown, feeling like losing his whole life. He is stranded in a small town, not knowing where to go and what to do. He is feeling terribly lonely. Suddenly comes a long, lost story in his mind, that he had blocked out all this years. As a baby he was abandoned by his bodily mother. He has never seen her again. Ken decides to search for his lost mother, and take a long and painful way back to life.

For more information on the project, visit her Tumblr to read the post in full.
