Once a fiddler with Apache Relay, multi-instrumentalist Kellen Wenrich begins his solo career as Kellen of Troy with his debut LP, Posthumous Release (out February 16th). The upcoming release finds the singer-songwriter mellow, focused, and rich with realization in songs where blissful folk melodies are juxtaposed with reflective, vulnerable, and somber lyrics that pull from the personal and professional.
Today, Kellen of Troy shares the new song, “Rule Your Heart,” a cleverly crafted indie-pop gem with a spacious melody that floats alongside Wenrich’s honest, endearing vocals. Wenrich, who is happily married, says the song is “about my beautiful, brilliant, compassionate, talented, bad-ass wife and how I don’t really care about what anybody thinks of me besides her. Also, how I don’t really care to do or be anything else besides her husband.” Adding, “Full-disclosure, she is sitting next to me right now, but that in no way has influenced my answer.”
