Kaiser Cartel Going Soph
Produced by Matt Hales (aqualung) and recorded in an old folkloric church around London, the styles and sounds explored on this album run the musical gamut – from the road trip-perfect first single "Ready To Go" to the Kate Bush-evoking ethereal opening track "Riverboat Dream" to the melancholy folk-tinged "Minefield," there is something for everyone.
Courtney Kaiser and Benjamin Cartel began writing songs together in 2004, creating a musical partnership crafting luscious harmonies and infectious melodies. Prior to forming Kaiser Cartel, Courtney toured as a back up singer for John Mellencamp and both of their desires for creative variability currently finds Benjamin additionally fronting his self-titled side project band and Courtney occasionally moonlighting for Sean Lennon's band as well as lending her vocals to choral arrangements on the upcoming Sufjan Stevens' album.
