KELLY ANN is a force to be reckoned with. Unafraid of pushing the boundaries of genre, her pure and soulful voice captures your attention from the start. Her influences range from jazz, soul, motown, celtic folk, pop, and r&b.
KELLY ANN started writing music before she could write. Growing up in choirs, every instructor tested her vocal range while learning guitar gave her the courage to hit the stage. She continued her vocal training throughout college in Memphis, TN until she moved back to her home state of California and launched her solo career in 2011.
In 2013 she released a self-titled EP with a national tour that promised to put her in contention with songwriters like Ray Lamontagne. The album sold out that first year with local shows. However, health problems forced her to take a few steps back.
Finally, September 1, 2019 brought the release of Mockingbird (her latest single) where we see the songwriting dare of Bob Dylan with all the grace and beauty of Enya. We look forward to more from this promising artist.
"I definitely found my soul instrument in the mandolin the past few years and the result is beautiful. I hope that with your support, I can share the healing and beauty I have been able to express in these new songs." - KELLY ANN
