Kelly got a sudden nudge to pick up the guitar in her early 20’s. Songwriting soon became her passion, but she had no musical background. On a whim, she auditioned for the school of music at Centenary College and was accepted. She soon began crafting songs. Her music is clearly influenced by folk rock, blues and Texas rock. With only one song under her belt, she entered a songwriting competition on campus and won second place. Kelly began playing in venues such as Momo’s in Austin and Fitzgerald’s in Houston. As life ebbed and flowed she continued to be prolific in writing but has taken a long break from performing. She now rejoins the music scene with new enthusiasm for sharing her intimate songs with us.
