"Kenny Selcer – Don’t Forget About Me: A total blend of folk, Americana and contemporary sounds. Using instruments as varied as the glockenspiel and lap percussion to the commonplace guitar and drums the production is unconventional and it’s sound reflects that. Selcer produces well-crafted songs with a variety of deliveries that makes the album an unexpected listening experience." Austindaze.com

Goin' Home Now. This song is a blend of bluegrass and Americana. It's about the ambivalence of love. Great mandolin playing from Jimmy Ryan. Cool harmonies. Nice bouncy tune that caught the tension between the love of going home and the reality of what's there!
Don't Forget About Me. I wrote this song, Don't Forget About Me a bunch of years ago. It kept "calling" to me, so to speak. My old band, Shazam, performed it here & there. I always liked this song. It seems to capture my angst about getting older and my legacy and all that. And it's fun to sing along with! So I recorded it full out with wonderful musicians. I've been playing it solo these days also. Enjoy! Kenny

"Kenny's vocals make me think of a cross between Tom Petty and Bob Dylan. There’s a cool blend of music on this disc. At times it’s not far removed from Americana and classic rock. Other cuts lean heavily on pure folk music, while different points in the set seem more like country music. However you slice it, though, this is an entertaining set that, while not perfect, is pretty consistent." -GW Hill, Music Street Journal

"This is a wonderful CD! It is an excellent collection of well-crafted songs, sensitively presented. Your voice shines, your guitar-playing is perfection, the arrangements are excellent, whether you are playing and singing alone or presenting a song with one or more of your talented accompanists. I’ve enjoyed the album on a first listen, and even more on a second listen. Many of these songs I’ve heard you do live. It’s a very hopeful collection of pieces. The songs go down easily – excellent melodies and chord choices. I hope that this album will get a lot of attention!"
Ellen Schmidt, musician, producer
_Don’t Forget About Me
"The most powerful thing I've noticed about Kenny Selcer's album, Don't Forget About Me, is this: listening to it makes me feel good. Don't get me wrong- this isn't simple, superficial music. Nothing of the sort. These songs are songs that tell the truth about what it is like to be alive- facing loss, facing the future, facing our task here on earth: to create a life that is authentic and meaningful. How can I help but feel good in the presence of music that is this kind of real? Add to this, the fact that these are wonderfully crafted songs- that Kenny's voice rings true, and that his guitar playing is transcendental- and you have a winning combination. Thanks for making this for us all- you have cooked us up a delicious banquet of sound!" - Lynn McKenna, music lover, singer and songwriter, musician
