Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist John Kehl (pron. /kel/) spent many years as a music teacher before getting back into songwriting as a New Year’s resolution. Quirky lyrics, groove, and weird guitar are hallmarks of his style, having grown up listening to 60’s electric-era Miles Davis and 90’s grunge and indie bands.
The first Oodles EP, Life After Death, is about transition and change, taking a light but honest look at life, death, and the hellscape that is online dating.
