"Our Critics' Top 5 Albums of 2007"

#5 Stephen Kellogg and The Sixers "Glassjaw Boxer" - Brian Mansfield - USA Today

"Six Bands Worth Checking Out at SXSW '08"

I wish I hadn't left the bar to get a taco after Gilmore's set because when I returned, the venue was wall-to-wall full to hear Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers. I've been playing their CD almost every day since I received it a few weeks ago. One of the songs, "4th of July," was written about everything that's gone wrong in his life so far (losing his friends, contemplating suicide, etc.). But, wow, it's so easy to sing along to! Apparently the band tours relentlessly, and now they can draw a sizeable crowd wherever they go. This was my first time to see them, and I was pleasantly surprised by the capacity crowd. I love spreading the word about new bands, but it's equally exciting to join a throng that's one step ahead of you. Those are excellent reasons to keep coming back to SXSW. That -- and the tacos. -

"Heavyweight 'Boxer'"

When Stephen Kellogg’s major-label debut dropped in 2005, the Boston songsmith was poised for a commercial breakthrough . . . but it just didn’t happen. But thanks to a sizable fan base and a relentless touring schedule, Kellogg’s new disc has an audience waiting to listen. Delving deeper into personal emotional terrain with his most honest songwriting yet, Kellogg waxes between despair and acceptance, with vocals mixed so high he sounds like he’s seated right beside you. The 11 new tracks bask in a ragged musical blue-collar glory from fuller alt-country arrangements that avoid unnecessary gloss thanks to production by Whiskeytown’s Mike Daly. - Boston Herald

Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers is a Massachusetts trio made up of two distinct parts. In one corner stands the unmistakably jubilant personality of rock-n-roll’s The Sixers; in the other sits an authentic American songwriter in a period of profound growth. Rising triumphantly in the center is a band whose music is the perfect marriage of the two.

Over the past four years the Sixers have toured constantly, reaching out to old and new fans alike, with their upbeat and unforgettable live show.

Glassjaw Boxer, the band’s current release, is a lasting letter to the world about family and friendships. Produced by Whiskeytown’s Mike Daly with mixing help from Dave Bryson of Counting Crows and guest appearances by Mike Daly, Caitlin Cary (Whiskeytown/ Vocals) and Marc Roberge (O.A.R/Vocals) among others, the songs of Glassjaw Boxer warmly envelop the listener. As strummed acoustic and electric guitars share space with accordions, trumpets, and soaring lap steel, Kellogg and his band craft an impassioned set of music that is not observed from a distance, but intimately experienced.
