Boston, MA (Top40 Charts/ Powderfinger Promotions) Kenny Selcer's latest release, "Don't Forget About Me," is an album that perfectly blends folk, Americana, and Adult Contemporary music. Each track on this album seems effortlessly written and performed, just as pop music should be. Selcer uses his own experience as his main musical influence, which makes for an uncommon and enjoyable collection of songs. Kenny Selcer primarily uses his guitar and voice as a medium for individual expression, but exemplifies his musical ability by using instruments as varied as glockenspiel and lap percussion. With Andy Solberg (Bass), Mike Migliozzi (Drums), Chris Billias (Organ and Piano), as well as an array of other talented musicians, Selcer has produced an album with an unconventionally honest and heartfelt sound.
"Kenny Selcer has put together an album of memorable tunes and sensational picking."- Joseph Tortelli
"The entire work is one warm vibe that you ride through on the strength of Selcer's pleasant, mellifluous vocal."- Bill Copeland
From the opening title track, "Don't Forget About Me," and throughout the album, Selcer doesn't hold back his musicianship or candor. With the upbeat mood and nonchalant voice of this yearning love song, parallels between the famed singer-songwriter Jackson Browne are instantly created. "Even A Shining Star," the album's fourth track, opens with a slide-oriented guitar motif and evolves into a high-soaring chorus led by Selcer's ambitious lyrics, "Listen, listen to the rhythm of your heart/though it's tearing you apart/gotta make a brand new start." Selcer, armed with well-crafted songs and an earnest delivery, rivals many of the world's best singer-songwriters, while still adhering to his own individual songwriting style.
"Don't Forget? About Me was produced by Kenny Selcer and engineered by Dave Rizzuti, and mixed by Huck Bennert with Selcer's help. Selcer humbly explains the concept of his album: "The music brings the listener into my experience that ultimately brings them into their own experience to reflect on the truth of their own lives - all with the goal of making them feel good about themselves, to sing the songs, and to be real." "Don't Forget About Me" ultimately prevails in achieving Selcer's personal goals, creating a universally introspective album about love, loss, and mostly everything in between.
