Stephen Kellogg: Flossing In Bed And Tales From The Road, Parts One AND Two

Stephen Kellogg is a singer/songwriter who works his wife, four daughters AND his cousin in their family business. That business, the business of music, has changed drastically since the turn of the century and SK and I sat down to discuss many facets of those twists and turns. We talk about the way younger generations consume music, how “selling out” has become “cool”, letting go of old business models and adapting to the new reality, how to make marriage work when your business takes you out of town (or, in this case, on tour), following your gut and having tough conversations, taking risks in front of big crowds and, embodying the “Last Man Standing” by always getting back up.

In Part One, we talk about the artistic ideal vs the business of music, how people’s relationship with music changes as life morphs into adulthood and why having a “hit” song is still as powerful as it has ever been.

In Part Two, we talk about the era of “Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers” coming to an end, reinventing one’s self after a “divorce” or an ending of significance, how to let go of the things that have been a part of your life for a long time but aren’t necessarily going to be the same and how to make a marriage work in the midst of the craziness of running your own business…or, in this case, being a touring musician.
