Alt-country singer-songwriter Stephen Kellogg has been hailed by CBS radio as “the best live act you’ve never seen” and by No Depression as “the best songwriter you’re not listening to.” In the last decade he has performed more than 1,500 concerts around the world, raised thousands of dollars for causes close to his heart, been named Armed Forces Entertainer of the Year, and penned singles for artists like “American Idol” winner Nick Fradiani and the platinum-selling rock band O.A.R. Kellogg’s most recent writing work with legendary guitarist Robert Randolph, has led to a 2017 Grammy nomination for “Best Contemporary Blues Record.” He’s also had his songs covered by international major label acts and released eight albums of his own that have yielded hundreds of thousands of ticket and album sales.
His Americana-tinged folk, pop, and rock stylings have landed him onstage with some of the biggest and best touring bands in the world (Train, Sugarland, Jason Isbell, Sara Bareilles, and Hanson to name a few.) Kellogg’s music has found its way onto the Billboard charts and been featured in numerous films and TV shows. Filmmaker Peter Harding’s documentary about him, Last Man Standing, went on to become an Amazon exclusive film. In recent years he’s added speaking to his resume, delivering a Tedx Talk on job satisfaction, the keynote speech for the prestigious photography summit WRKSHP, and garnering an invitation to speak to the students at Columbine High School in Littleton, CO on the topics of social justice and “finding your voice.” To his core, this musician and father of four brings heart and incredible energy to everything he does.
