After years of co-writing sessions, festival planning, sporadic performances, and overall “big idea” cultivating, Beth Kille and Erik Kjelland will now perform as a duo under the group name “Kerosene Kites” and will also play shows as a full band when rocking out is deemed necessary.
These prolific songwriters and co-founders of Flannel Fest began co-writing in the fall of 2013 after both were members of the Nashville Songwriters Association – Madison Chapter. Shared experiences of life on the road and supportive families at home allowed for a common lyrical bond and a basis for their holiday-themed North Star Sessions album released in December 2014. In December 2016 Kerosene Kites released “Under Cover Holiday” an album of re-imagined holiday classic holiday songs. They finally ran out of Christmas spirit in November 2017 when they released their first non-holiday album “Float Away.”
