Flat Five - Featuring Kelly Hogan
Flat Five

Featuring Kelly Hogan

Flat Five is a Chicago-based pop vocal super-group  Kelly Hogan, Nora OConnor, Scott Ligon, Casey McDonough, Alex Hall

Five in-demand musicians who individually spend much of their time touring and recording with bands like Neko Case, NRBQ,

The Decemberists, Andrew Bird, Mavis Staples, Iron and Wine, Jakob Dylan, Robbie Fulks, Alejandro Escovedo, The New Pornographers,

and many other heavy hitters.

These five folks stay very, very busy. Yet for the past ten years, these shameless harmony junkies would come together, like a moth to a porchlight,

to make music as The Flat Five. Purely for the love of singing together.

At first The Flat Five existed only as a once-a-year sold out holiday show in Chicago. Then came quarterly SRO gigs, and then month-long jam-packed residencies,

and thenslowlythe idea for a record grew out of the bands shared love of the repertoire of genius oddball songwriter and performer and big brother

to band member Scott Ligon Chris Ligon. The Flat Five were already performing many of Chriss songs in their set, and thought that making an entire record

of his compositions would be a good way to shoot up a flare and give more folks a chance to hear his amazing and unique music.

Chicago super group, The Flat Five have a natural gift to blend into almost any musical terrain, these five young-ish masters roam at will from the Beach Boys

to the Magnetic Fields, ancient country to neo-cabaret, gently melodic originals to gruesome old Americana.

Left to their own devices, they get busy translating feeling into tone, improvising gorgeous harmonic structures and grooves, and poking curiously

into posteritys dusty little corners - Robbie Fulks
