Kendell Marvel Debuts His ‘Solid Gold Sounds’

Kendell Marvel.

Kendell Marvel releases his new album, Solid Gold Sounds, today.

Co-produced by Grammy winners Dan Auerbach and Dave “Fergie” Ferguson, the album includes tracks like “Hard Time with the Truth,” “Blood In The Water,” “When It’s Good” and “Musta Kept It For Himself.” A respected writer in his own right, Marvel has penned songs with and for Gary Allan, Brothers Osborne, Jamey Johnson, Jake Owen, Lee Ann Womack, George Strait, and Chris Stapleton (including Stapleton’s Grammy-winning song “Either Way”).

“He has spent years behind the scenes in Nashville, helping others reach the spotlight but now it’s his turn to get a little shine. Solid Gold Sounds is his story, told in his own voice with his own words. I’m so proud of him for taking this giant step and I’m proud of this album we made together,” Auerbach says of working with Marvel.

“As a professional songwriter, you have to get on the radio. That’s your job,” Marvel commented on the impetus behind the new project. “There came a time when the stuff you had to write to get on the radio, I wasn’t willing to do anymore. I’d done pretty well as a songwriter up until that point, and made a few decisions where I didn’t have to put myself in that position. So I said, ‘I think I’ll make a record.’”
