Ethan Keller set himself up to crash and burn when he worked on the fourth album for the Ethan Keller Group, so it’s appropriate that it ended up with the name “Goin’ Down in History, Goin’ Down in Flames.”
The winner of the Wisconsin Area Music Industry award for pop artist of the year in 2011, Keller started working on the album about 18 months ago, but set a release show at Club Garibaldi for June 7 before the album had been completed. He’s been so busy working in the final stretch he said he neglected to shave for about six weeks.
"I threw my hat over the fence and had to go get it, because that’s the way I operate," he said.
We’ll see if he appears to be more groomed by the time he takes the Johnson Controls World Sound Stage at Summerfest on July 2.
