ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Not only has Canadian born Kelly Pettit been able to get his music spread out across 4 continents, but this Japan based musician has achieved this in ways that break the traditional mold of how a band should be heard. On his 4th Album titled “FUEL”, Kelly showcases exactly what makes him so alluring.
His mass appeal didn’t happen over night. Kelly has been slowly accumulating a loyal fan base since his first CD, “Life through a Windshield” and word of mouth about his music has graduated him to becoming a bona fide contender as a solid songwriter. His newest release “FUEL” has recently been reaching the masses through fans on Social Networks via the internet. It also won an international Ultimate Band Contest which started with over 2000 bands from all over the world; received great reviews in magazines like Artist Direct, Indie Artists, and the Tokyo music scene; and landed him newspaper and television space. Then, his song “She’s Just Like Summer”, won track of the month on ABC’s Fame Games radio which receives over 4 million listeners. Kelly’s growing popularity has led him to perform in front of sold out crowds of die hard Japanese fans.
On FUEL, Kelly takes a diverse approach to writing each song but always keeping in mind a feel good, energy driven approach. Having a close relationship and working with Canadian pop rock icons from the 90’s “ODDS” and Kelly Clarkson’s multi instrumentalist Cory Churko, Kelly took advantage of their understanding of crafting great melodic songs. “There are no bells and whistles in this album. It’s just solid musicians digging deep into each song to make them something special,” says Kelly. The result is a sonic experience described by Kelly as folk rock with a hint of alt-country and melodically driven for car driving.
Influenced largely by Australian bands like Crowded House, songwriter Neil Finn, Things of Stone and Wood, and Australian Paul Kelly, along with North American counterparts The Jayhawks, Barenaked Ladies, and the Counting Crows, Kelly works to define a sound all his own with musicianship and a dedication to each detail of the songwriting process. “My influences are quite diverse and you can really hear that in this CD. What’s constant is my attempt to keep the CD happy and upbeat”, says Kelly. Tracks like “She’ Just Like Summer”, “Little Imperfections”, and “World Is Turning” sum up that statement clearly while tracks like “Buy Now Pay Later” and “When You’re Alone” take a second listen to understand the positive message hidden in the lyrics. As one reviewer wrote, “It's clear by listening to FUEL that Kelly is a master singer/songwriter. His soulful tunes and easy vocals will make this CD, and any he comes out with next a "MUST HAVE".


ケリーぺティット

カナダのバンクーバー島出身。初めてプロと
してライブをしたのは高校時代、オリジナルをレコーディングし、販売、コンサートを開く。高校卒業後、オーストラリアに渡りミュージシャンとしての武者修行に励む。演奏ができる所ならいつでも、どこへでも出かけ、好きな音楽に明け暮れた日々を送る。この時の経験が自分のミュージシャンとしての技術もさることながら人間としても成長できたと思う、とは本人の弁。オーストラリア滞在中に自作の曲「スタンド トール」が、「シドニー作詞・作曲家コンテスト」で優勝。一旦カナダに帰国、大学生活を送り、1997年トリオを組んで来日、群馬県沼田市のロックハート城専属のミュージシャンとなる。すっかり日本が気に入り、当時のトリオは解散したものの、沼田に留まり音楽活動を継続中。

   
これまでに、東京のカナダ大使館、JR上野  駅でコンサート、毎年沼田市で開かれる音楽祭に参加、ロータリークラブのイベント、チャリティーコンサート、ホテル、結婚式、テーマパーク、お祭り等、一年を通して数え切れないほどのライブ活動をしている。
また、毎年カナダに帰国、精力的にコンサート活動をする。帰国の度に、地元のメディアで大きく扱われ、大忙しの「里帰り」である。特に2007年は、先のUBLコンテストの優勝があったので、僅か3週間の間に、ライブを7回、メジャー紙の数社の表紙を飾り、数社の雑誌に特集記事がり、30分のラジオインタビュー(CBC)、テレビのニュースのインタビュー等、まさに目も回るほどの忙しさだった。また、その優勝記念に「UBLコンテスト優勝記念コンサート」と銘打って、9月23日(日)Hotel Bella Vita( 沼田市)で大々的に行なわれた。

Great CD
Kelly Pettit's "Fuel" is a great CD! I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for some music that you would want to sing along to. Great car driving music. My kids love it too. Our personal favorites are "Little Imperfections", "Makes Me Crazy" and "Down and Out" Give the CD a try- you won't be disappointed.

Best album yet!!
Wow! and I thought the last album was great. Kelly's music keeps getting better and better. Some very thoughtful and clever lyrics and catchy melodies. Lots of variety in tune selection. My favorite is Little Imperfections. This album went directly in my itunes collection. 16 songs? Amazing!

No imperfections on this CD
FUEL would have made great company when we drove into the Outback and wrote that book about you. Have loved all four CD's but FUEL has it all, clear vocals, great instrumental support, excellent mix from the studio. Buy it people. Talk About It. Above all, put it in your car.

A Happy-place vacation!
Fuel grabbed and held my attention from start to finish. I could write about each individual song, like the driving rhythm of Someday, the sing-a-long melody of Little Imperfections, or the insightful lyrics of Buy Now Pay Later but I want to write about another aspect of the album. Great music from any era or genre has the ability to transport the listener to another dimension. Kelly's voice, and the songs in FUEL take you away from what is going on in your life for a brief period. It is like a happy-place vacation. Just close your eyes and turn up the volume.

A wonderful collection of songs
This is a truly enjoyable collection of songs, very impressive! Great mix of lyrical, romantic sometimes and lively, energetic tracks. You can hear how much the musician has grown from the time of "...windshield". Keep up the good work! Looking forward to a new release soon.

Sunshine on CD
I love the cheerful music on this cd! Kelly has a clean yet complex sound that really appeals to me. The tempo is perfect for walking with or working out with and you'll find it a constant on my ipod! The song "Little Imperfections" is a strong favorite for me. My 4 year old sings along to "Hard To Breath"! In these dreary days of winter Kelly's music brings a little bit of summer into my world-- driving with the top down!

I love to listen to this CD. I have had it now for about 2 weeks and right from the beginning I really enjoyed hearing it. I find myself singing along and tapping my feet and really enjoy the beat. All the songs are so differant. The variety is great and there is something for everyone. My kids love it too and yell at me from the back seat, " Put On Fuel Mom ". Our favorite songs are Stone After Stone, The World Is Turning, and Talk About It. Kelly is a very talented song writer and performer and this CD proves that. I wish him all the best !
