ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
How does this west coast Canada born musician wind up in Japan doing national shows, festivals, theme parks and shows for the Canadian Embassy? Kelly Pettit's life as a musician has taken him to over 4 countries. On his 6th and latest album titled “Every Sunrise”, Kelly showcases exactly what makes him so alluring.

Dual citizenship with Australia, Kelly started busking there at age 19 to support him on his backpack travels and quickly learned that entertaining and playing well got him more success. So he practiced hard with everyone he could to learn from.

Later while attending university in Vancouver Canada, his 3 piece band got one of 15 licenses to legally busk at BC transit stations where transients would gather around the trio watching their show, often missing their rides to continue listening. From there, Kelly's trio picked up a heap of gigs from passer-by's including political functions, TV series parties, venues and more. It also led to a free trip to Japan where Kelly fell in love with the laughs and crazy adventures the foreign country provided.

Pettit's newest release “Every Sunrise” was recorded in Nashville Tennessee and produced by Aussie 90's icon Greg Arnold. After recording his 5th solo album "These Days" in Australia Kelly embarked to the States to explore the Nashville scene. The outcome is a jackpot of catchy tunes with a strong nostalgic ache of real life. A couple listens and one finds themselves in an emotional roller-coaster ride of happiness and loss in 11 songs and 38 minutes.

Kelly's past success from his 4th album FUEL launched him a large fan base by winning a $200,000 contest, song of the month awards, radio play and more. Guest appearances from old band member Cory Churko (Shania Twain, Kelly Clarkson musician) added a familiar sound their 3 piece had back in the day. This time, Kelly wanted to challenge himself more and thought Nashville might just be that key ingredient. Competitive in nature, Kelly always feels an urge to do what he can to up-the-game. On Every Sunrise, producer and award winning songwriter Greg Arnold seemed to know exactly how to unleash Kelly's ideas and polish them into well-crafted radio ready songs.

Influenced largely by Australian bands like Crowded House, Things of Stone and Wood, and Paul Kelly, along with North American counterparts The Jayhawks, Barenaked Ladies, and the Counting Crows, Kelly works to define a sound all his own and a dedication to each detail of the songwriting process. “My influences are quite diverse and that seems to show on the album. What’s constant is my attempt to find catchy melodies and happy instruments”, says Kelly.

The CD starts of with the song "Perfectly Beautiful" which is just that. With lines like, "There ain't no formula or sum, no recipe or rule of thumb to explain how I feel" is part of why this song oozes with charm. The following song "Follow Me" is a more pop rock vibe with catchy hooks laced throughout. One of those songs that you find yourself singing later in the day away from the album. Then there is the title track "Every Sunrise" which as one fan put it, "...the perfect song for a Vampire love movie". The chorus is as catchy as they come. "It Could Be Yours" just might be the first single off this album. "Tears Carved in Stone" introduces the Turkish guitar called the "Cumpus" which adds a very cool vibe to an already feel good tune. The last song "Road to London" is a Celtic spice of story telling that has made the hairs stand up on some listeners.

"Every Sunrise" could fit into several genres making it a great album for both Country and rock fans. This is undoubtedly Kelly Pettit's best effort so far. His last album "These Days" was strong and so it's pleasing to say that this album surprising surpasses expectations. It clearly puts Kelly in an elite league of genuine songwriters and it is a must listen - even as early as every sunrise.

Beautiful melodies with acoustic flavor
Nanaimo Canada born musician, Kelly Pettit 6th album has just come out.
"Every Sunrise" album was recorded in Nashville Tennessee and produced by Greg Arnold, same combination as his 5th album "These Days".

This one is filled with beautiful melodies, which do invite us to sing along.
All songs' compositions sound perfect, which could due to Kelly and Greg matured collaboration, I guess.
Various instruments seemed recorded by skillful players around Nashville, which added various colors to already well written songs. The results are truly marvelous and inspirational.

Here is the song list;
1 Perfectly Beautiful
2 Follow Me
3 You & I
4 Every Sunrise
5 I Feel Nothing Now
6 It Can Be Yours
7 Tears Carved in Stone
8 Dead Lines
9 Gonna Have Days
10 Stole My Cool
11 Road to London

My words are powerless, compared with his songs.
Therefore, I would like all of you to listen to his music.
Please give his new-born songs a chance to beknown through this planet.
I do believe you like them :)

A Five Star Album From A Five Star Singer
Back in 2007, I was searching for new music on Myspace when I came across Kelly’s Japanese fan page. I bought his 4th album Fuel and my love of his music has continued to grow ever since.
Fast-forward to 2013. There are few artists whose album I must have as soon as they are out there. Every Sunrise landed in England and has been played to death ever since. From the opening chord on the sublime ‘Perfectly Beautiful’ through to the last strum of the guitar on ‘Road To London’, you will go through a mixture of emotions, held together by superb musicianship coupled with excellent production .
Kelly’s great voice will lead you through a maze of mixed emotions, making you want to cry along with his pain throughout ‘I feel Nothing Now’ to be instantly uplifted by the picture he paints in your mind during ‘It Can Be yours’.
My favourite song, ‘Follow Me’, put Kelly in the Keith Urban area, whist you will find hints of Bryan Adams, Neil Finn and even Bob Dylan in the rest of the album if you lend it your ears!
Recording in Nashville certainly suits Kelly! This is an album that is worth investing some of your hard earned cash in!

Great cd!
I've been listening to Kelly's new cd since I got it last week. I really love his music, great songs and lyric.
I like all of the songs, I never skip anyone when listening. It's not only the songwriting but Kelly's unique voice that gets you. Great arrangements, top notch instruments and tight sound is what you hear. I also went on Youtube and watched Kelly's video he did for one of the songs "Perfectly Beautiful" which he wrote for his little daugher. Very heartful and beautiful song and video. You should also check it out and this cd is a must to have in your collection!

Great Music
I've been listening to Kelly's music for years now and he just keeps maturing as a singer/songwriter. This is a great CD full of widely diverse songs that makes listening to it seem fresh everytime. My favorites tracks are "It Can Be Yours" and "Stole My Cool", but I'm sure everyone will have their own favorites.
