Deep Below Heaven

The wrinkles in this new publication from Mikael Kennedy are not intentional, I foolishly left the once-pristine 32-page, 9″ x 14″ zine full of beautiful landscapes on my dining room table next to an open window and an empty bottle of red wine. It rained that night, and this is the unfortunate effect of humidity on newsprint. You could say that this zine now has a “well-traveled” look to it, and that would be great, because starting tomorrow night, Mikael and his wife, Folk-Singer Melaena Cadiz begin their month long tour across America. Celebrating the joint release of their respective album + photo collection—both titled “Deep Below Heaven”—the duo’s first stop is at the Westerlind Showroom in Nolita for a performance accompanied by photo-projections. Stop by at 7pm and wish them well on their journey through the heartland.
