Where the heart does not enter, there can be no music.
— Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Kelly Hunt is a singer-songwriter of Americana/Roots music. Born and raised in Memphis, TN, she now is now based out of Kansas City, MO. Kelly's 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, blues, classic country, and old-time music for a sound that is both timeless and fresh, subtle and strong. Her songwriting is poetic but approachable, full of feeling and alive with masterful storytelling. Kelly's debut album, Even the Sparrow, will be released in August 2018. She will embark on her first national tour in September 2018 accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Stas' Heaney.
