Krist Krueger, aka Southerly, has learned how to manage his own music by promoting and booking the work of others. By running the Crow Agency, he has been able to tour nonstop for more than three years with his own clients, most recently Kill Rock Stars’ Jeff Hanson.
Southerly’s acoustic music treads a fine line between lush and minimal, his linear guitar shifting in and out of intense percussion and pastoral orchestrations. First full-length “Best Dressed and Expressionless” was released last year on tiny imprint Fall Records. Krueger is looking for new takers on his current set, “Storyteller and the Gossip Columnist.”
“A lot of it revolves around a very indirect, unspecific theme of trying to envision yourself when you’re in your 60s and 70s, deciphering what regrets you might have, or the ones you could’ve avoided,” he says.
