1. Product Details

Kellers songwriting and arrangements are outstanding. His music is fresh and upbeat yet he retains the storytelling principles of folk music. The album has a Tex-Mex influence to it which is especially appealing. Originally from Los Angeles Keller at one time spent a year immersed in the traditional music of southern Appalachia. He left there by bus and traveled around the country eventually settling in Texas. After eight years he left Texas and now lives in New Mexico. His music has traces of country pop and blues. He tells stories of the American Southwest hard-working people and those who live south of the border and yearn for a life in America. His influences range from Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen to Delbert McClinton and Jesse Winchester. No Stranger to Wishes was recorded in Austin with local musicians and contains beautiful songs. Especially good are Spanish Johnny a soulful song and Darcys Song a tender tune written for his daughter. -- Tulsa World No Stranger to Wishes sports a full backing band and Kellers arrangements involve considerable use of mandolin and fiddle. His poetic lyricism introduces a range of curious characters and the albums standout track Across the Borderland addresses the border immigration issue. Although his lyrics and Dylan-esque talking vocals are rooted in the folk tradition Keller concedes that musically his compositions owe more to the Flying Burrito Brothers and Bob Wills than to Dylan which explains why No Stranger to Wishes alternates between uptempo Texas swing and country rock and more traditional country-flavored ballads. -- Dave Mawson Worcester Telegram Massachusetts Complete lyrics credits and graphics for all of Kellers albums are available online at Musicians on No Stranger to Wishes included Leonard Cohens guitarist Mitch Watkins and drummer Steve Meador George Straits fiddler Gene Elders plus Paul Glasse on mandolin Spencer Starnes on bass with harmony vocals by Doug Hudson & Denice Franke Hudson & Franke and Janice Ryals-Rogers & Elliott Rogers The Ramblers. Keller played his own Martin HD-28 guitar throughout.
