RUSTON KELLY DEBUTS SCREAMING INFIDELITIES VIDEO FEATURING CHRIS CARRABBA
NEW PROJECT DIRT EMO VOL. 1 OUT NOW
WILL MAKE HEADLINE DEBUT AT NASHVILLE’S HISTORIC RYMAN AUDITORIUM NEXT YEAR
Toronto, ON – November 15, 2019 – The official music video for Ruston Kelly’s rendition of Dashboard Confessional’s, Screaming Infidelities featuring the band’s lead singer, Chris Carrabba is debuting today. Watch/share here.
The song comes from Kelly’s acclaimed new project Dirt Emo Vol. 1, which was released last month via Rounder Records (stream/purchase here). Co-produced by Kelly and Jarrad K, the eight-song release consists of Kelly’s favourite emo songs including a live cover of Wheatus’, Teenage Dirtbag as well as new renditions of The Carter Family’s, Weeping Willow and Taylor Swift’s, All Too Well.
Kelly’s version of All Too Well was released to widespread critical praise and garnered attention from Swift herself. Billboard declares, “Kelly puts his own haunting spin on the track with yearning vocals, delicate percussion and soaring instrumentation,” while UPROXX praises, “…his rendition is a beautiful tribute to the raw emotionality of the original. He makes the song his own with atmospheric instrumentals, replacing Swift’s driving percussion with drums that sound more soft and searching.”
In celebration of his breakout year, Kelly will make his headline debut at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium next year on March 6, 2020. Of this milestone, Kelly shares, “Words cannot express the honor and excitement I have for headlining the Ryman. It has been the North Star to me as far as establishing myself as a touring artist. I’ve been dreaming of playing my own show there for a very long time.”
The release of Dirt Emo Vol.1 adds to a landmark year for Kelly, whose full-length debut album, Dying Star, was released last fall on Rounder Records (purchase/stream here). Co-produced by Kelly and Jarrad K, Dying Star landed on several Best of 2018 lists including Rolling Stone, Paste, UPROXX, American Songwriter and NPR Music, which declares, “Kelly digs down deep on Dying Star to fearlessly put forth a set of songs steeped in emotional twists, turns and complications…This here is powerful stuff.”
