After the October 2017 release of his debut album LOWDOWN & LONESOME, Kendell Marvel hit the ground running and hasnâ€™t stopped since. In the past three months Marvel has added performances, the release of his album in the UK through Snakefarm Records, topped with a UK tour with Brothers Osborne.
Taking his album overseas was a natural next move, and it has proven to be a successful one. Marvel received rave reviews of both his album and his opening performance on the tour. Entertainment Focus raved, â€œHis growly vocals, rich lyrics and fantastic energy on stage all added up to a brilliant performance and the praise heâ€™s been winning is well deserved.â€
Now, Marvel releases the honky tonk rocker â€˜Heartache Off My Backâ€™ as his third single. â€œItâ€™s an in your face song,â€ says Kendell; â€œItâ€™s about throwing your hands up and saying to hellÂ with all this hurtinâ€™.â€ Watch the official video for â€˜Heartache Off My Backâ€™ here.
Marvel shows no sign of slowing down– the singer/songwriter is set to hit the road this summer with Jamey Johnson, Brothers Osborne and A Thousand Horses, and will be performing at Nashvilleâ€™s Ascend Ampitheater with Cody Jinks as a part of Septemberâ€™sÂ Americana Music Fest.

Rolling Stone Country calls LOWDOWN & LONESOME a â€œbluesy, riff-heavy rocker that calls to mind the restless Southern rock of the Allman Brothers Band and Hank Williams Jr.â€™s whiskey-soaked howl.â€
