It’s been a long time coming but at last, I am so proud to present to you, the new Sam Kelly’s Station House album entitled “No Barricades”.

I have finally produced my own album “No Barricades”.   One of the most exciting projects that I have ever been involved in and I am massively proud of the finished product.  Special thanks to my band: Paul Jobson, Tony Qunta, Richard Sadler, Jerome Marcus, Rowena Poole and special guest, Christophe Pelissié.  My gratitude also to Christophe Pelissié at Le Studio du Flâneur for his advice, skill and dedication in recording, mixing and mastering the album.         

I have enjoyed more than 40 years as a professional drummer, working on other people’s albums and retaining ideas on the direction and feel of a variety of musical arrangements.   “No Barricades” is my track selection, my arrangement for each musical instrument, my augmentation of the wonderful array of vocal harmonies and my decisions on the style of music.

“No Barricades” is me and my band, Sam Kelly’s Station House.  It is what we do.  No set genre, no limitation on creative instrumentation, no compliance with convention and no restrictions.  This is the nearest you will get to hearing Sam Kelly’s Station House playing “live” but in the studio.  Hope you enjoy the ride.
