The album has also received much airplay and reached the number 1 spot on the ZMR Radio charts. Touring has also been extensive and Kellerman has played over 20 cities in the USA including performing to a sold-out Carnegie hall in October and also performing at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. He heads off late December to tour Australia including shows at the Woodford Folk Festival and Globe to Globe festival in Melbourne.
