Kellindo releases new guitar anthem ‘Long Gone’
New York artist Kellindo is best known through his work with Janelle Monae, playing guitar on her four Grammy-nominated records and has toured on stages from The Oscars to the Grammys. Now, Kellindo is carving his own path with a stunning discography of soulful rock. One such example is his new single, the thrilling rock anthem ‘Long Gone’. The track was released along with a release party on IG Live last week.
Kellindo comes from a rich heritage. Past family members include James Brown’s band members, Melvin and Maceo Parker, and Kellis Parker, the first Black Law professor at Columbia University. Once Kellindo picked up a guitar at the age of 8, anything was possible. After spending the last decade performing with icons such as Prince and Stevie Wonder, he is now focusing on his own distinctive brand of soulful rock ‘n’ roll. And up to this point, his singles have gathered almost 200,000 streams on Spotify. A highlight of his releases is the psychedelic single ‘When Flowers Could Dance’, which has been streamed over 128,000 times.
His new single ‘Long Gone’, released on the independent label Quickfix Recordings, is a thrilling rock anthem with a roaring chorus and spirited vocals. The fluid guitar riffs and driving hooks are addictive, leaving the listener to sink into its groovy yet assured direction. It also manages to be both refreshing and wonderfully timeless, where it warmly links to the large-scale rock anthems of the 80s.
‘Long Gone’ precedes the release of Kellindo’s epic rock-opera debut album, titled Shattered Rhapsody. It’s looking to be a very exciting and unique release, so watch this space!
