About kelly pardekooper

Singer and songwriter Kelly Pardekooper is a journeyman performer known for his rough-hewn but tuneful alt-country and songs about honest, emotional tales of life in the Midwest. It was this rootsy, lived-in quality he brought to his debut, 1998's 30-Weight, as well as albums like 2000's Johnson County Snow, 2004's Haymaker Heart, and 2011's Yonder. Pardekooper's music has attracted the attention of Hollywood, nabbing placements in shows like True Blood, Sons of Anarchy, and Justified, among others. The title track to his 2014 album Milk in Sunshine was featured in the drama Virgin River. He has continued to dig deeper into his country style, releasing 2016's City at Night and 2022's Autumn, the latter of which he recorded in Nashville with Teddy Morgan and Wilco's Pat Sansone.
