Hal Ketchum (Born 1953)

Ketchum, a singer-songwriter from upstate New York who arrived in Nashville via Austin, Texas, made his living around Nashville as a fine carpenter before signing with Curb Records. (This portrait was shot at a photo session for his first album for Curb.)  Though he’d been recording since the mid-eighties, he did not have a major hit until the release of his album Past the Point of Rescue in 1991. He continues to record and release new material.
