Kelly was born and raised in Memphis, TN but is now based out of Kansas City, MO. Her primary instrument is her voice, which rings out with confidence and clarity of one who has been singing all her life.
Accompanied by her 1920s tenor banjo ("Ira") and guitar ("Vernon"), Kelly’s songs meld traditions of folk, classic country, and old-time music for a sound that is both timeless and fresh. Her songwriting is poetic but approachable, full of feeling and alive with storytelling.
With her new debut album Even the Sparrow in hand, Kelly embarks on her first national tour this September, accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Staś Heaney.
