CD Release party for "Boardman", Kip Boardman's 4th and latest release at El Cid

We owe thanks to Nelson Bragg for this one. He stopped by west Los Angeles nightclub, The Cinema Bar one night and watched Kip Boardman and band toss these songs out to an almost empty room and was enthralled. He asked Boardman if he could do that in a studio. The self-titled, Boardman is Kip Boardman’s fourth studio album, and a first for Nelson Bragg’s Steel Derrick Music.
Kip Boardman's band is small and simple--- keyboards, two guitars (Dave Gleason and Eric Heywood, who doubles on pedal steel), bass (Rob Douglas), drums (Steve Mugalian), and Boardman, who plays the Wurlitzer piano. While Boardman is more rocking than his last effort, the halcyonic, The Long Weight, it still retains the signatures of Kip Boardman’s music—wry sense of humor, a gift for melody and lyrics, which are sung in his reed-like tenor. Boardman’s music is hard to pin into one genre of music.  You will hear a hybrid of 70’s AM rock, rootsy sounding pop and L.A. country rock.Or as Boardman, puts it, “The music I play strives for melody that gently rubs on chordal movement so elegant no one even notices…”
"Boardman's previous albums are still available (at least, I hope they are) and after hearing his latest, Boardman, some of you will trek back to hear them and probably wonder how you missed them the first time around.…Another one to add to my Album of the Year list."--Frank Gutch Jr., No Depression/ Rock n' Reprise
"Captured live full studio, with no excess of arrangement, but accumulation of subtle details, mastery and absolute elegance."--Long Player Late Blog
