ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After recording and producing music for himself and others in the Tampa Bay Area and spending months out on the Tampa Bay Blues scene, honing his chops at bars and clubs such as the Green Iguana WestShore where he got the chance to jam with local musicians such as Branson Welsh, John Dash Dixon of The Black Honkies, Dean Germain, Tommy Mccoy, and a host of others, Kelly felt it time to release his own material. He remarks... “I love the blues and the crowds showed much support, but felt that I still had more to offer as an artist, so I started putting together an album. In some ways I felt that my guitar playing became bigger than my artistry, and that had to be remedied.” Bashful he may seem, as many take his guitar work to be a very memorable experience, displaying a holistic view of his artistic expression is paramount to him. Along with being a songwriter, Kelly is also an instrumentalist, performing all the instruments on this album. “As far as the instruments, I' m always working at 'em. I took up saxophone and flute throughout the course of making this album... I like to keep myself learning new things and exploring new musical ideas.” After listening to a couple tracks the hint towards injustice and human suffering seems to be one of Kelly's motifs. " I am not an activist, but I cannot ignore the power that music has, nor the responsibility I feel to make it in a way that shines light on all aspects of human life.'Things don't have to be opinionated, forceful, or overly emotional, but everything deserves its mention." When asked about future projects Kelly replies..." I'm working on an acoustic album to be released in October."
