Kelly Hogan

  • Hogan, who's sung backup for Neko Case, Andrew Bird and others, tells World Cafe host David Dye how she finally got her own record deal — and recruited more than 40 musicians to help with her new solo album, I Like to Keep Myself in Pain.
  • Hogan brings confidence and unflappable professionalism to her new album, I Like to Keep Myself in Pain. That carries over to this performance in the NPR Music offices, as she and her ace band knock out three songs with seeming effortlessness and easygoing charm.
  • A self-proclaimed "backup singing ninja" with a host of famous friends and admirers, Hogan has just released her first solo album in 11 years.
