Floyd Kellogg

After playing bass guitar and drums since he was 11, Floyd graduated from the University of Connecticut (2002) with a degree in music performance. He began touring with a number of different bands living in Boston and New York City. He toured and performed internationally with “Spookie Daly Pride”, “Adios Pantalones” and “You Scream I Scream”. Floyd was the frontman and wrote the music for the band “You Scream I Scream”. These groups all toured with/supported acts such as “Presidents of the United States of America”, “Arrested Development”, “The Wailers”, “JJ Grey and Mofro”, “Reel Big Fish”, “Tom Tom Club” and “Goldfinger” (to name a few). When performing with these groups Floyd worked with record producers and engineers and began immersing himself in the process of recording and producing music. He worked and was mentored by Carl Nappa (Nelly, Pet Shop Boys), Sean Slade (Radio Head, Morphine) Paul Koldrire (Dinosaur Jr, Mighty Mighty Bostones, Pixies) Danny Bernini (The Fray, Notorious BIG).

Floyd began recording/producing bands and artists on his own from his experience in engineering, performing, and writing. He began scoring and putting music to TV and film with his original compositions being played on ESPN, NESN, FOX, and became part of the comedy theater Upright Citizens Brigade in NYC. In 2010 Floyd partnered with musician and architect Jeff Jahnke to start Case de Warrenton, a Victorian house converted to the recording studio in the west end of Hartford, CT. He continues working there producing records.

Floyd now calls Nantucket his home where his family is based and tours with the band Violent Mae which he produces and performs as a multi-instrumentalist in the band. He is very excited to already be recording and teaching in the beautiful facility NMC has to offer!
