Eleni Mandel Ready to 'Fly A Kite' with Nick Lowe's Band January 28

L.A. performing songwriter Eleni Mandel will release her ninth album Let's Fly A Kite on January 28, her second release for the Yep Roc label and the follow up to her 2012 release I Can See The Future. The new project was recorded in London with veteran Nick Lowe producer, and engineer Neil Brockbank and features members of Lowe's band -- a "magical experience" says Mandel, that came to fruition after she toured with labelmate Lowe, Brockbank and band. "We mutually agreed that we had tricked each other into making a record together." She adds, "These guys are so incredible to work with. I think it’s the greatest record I’ve ever done, and I’m just real excited to share it with people." Tour support for the album is coming partly from Mandel's Pledgemusic campaign: watch her discuss the fundraising and her new music in the video below.
