Wrap Up Of 2015 Touring: Say It Isn’t So


The 97's have wrapped up their touring for 2015. I know, HOW CAN THIS BE, RIGHT??!? No New Year's Eve show?!? No Christmas run in Dallas?!? Ken has hinted there might be a small show near Tyler, but other than that, NADA until Todos Santos, Mexico in January *sigh* Commence post-tour depression. It's been a fantastic run through the midwest and east coast. I can personally attest to the epic face-melting, Rock God performances in DC, Philly and Cleveland. King of all of his World.

Hey y'all this is Jefe, Old 97's web guy, breaking the 4th wall for a minute.

Catching Up With Our Lead Singer


After lighting up the midwest on a successful short Old 97's run, Rhett continued his tour in support of his stellar MMU companion solo effort, The Traveler.   Starting briefly in his beloved Texas, the bulk of his latest run was a jaunt from Seattle to Hermosa Beach, accompanied by the lovely, angelic-voiced Annalisa Tornfelt. She joined Rhett on stage for a handful of songs from The Traveler, as well as Old 97's tunes. Her virtuosity and backing vocals brought to life the tracks from the new album, and added a new layer to old classics.   Along the way,

New Rhett Solo Album The Traveler Out 5/12


In Rhett's own words: In late January of 2014, I entered Portland, Oregon's legendary Jackpot Studios accompanied by my friends in the band Black Prairie. John, Jon, Jenny, Nate, Chris, Annalisa and I tracked quickly. Almost everything you hear on The Traveler was recorded live on the floor of Jackpot during that beautiful week. The great Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey came in later and helped out with a few overdubs and that was pretty much it. My favorite thing about music is the friendship it engenders. And the best way to make music is to get some friends together
