Chris Kelly, an established singer-songwriter and self-appointed “Vagabond” whom constantly tours the UK music Scene has had his compositions used on the BBC, MTV and in commercials is now reaching across the pond to reach the ears and hearts of an international fanbase.
The Welch native, whom had released 2 albums with his previous band “The Scooters” while signed with an LA based label, has known the music scene well. It was with this band he first became well known in the US music scene and performed at such prestigious locations such as The Viper Room.
But, as with many of life’s stories, when tragedy struck and he lost his longtime friend and band-mate Anthony Carey to natural causes, his life forever changed.
To deal with this tragic event, he set upon re-releasing his dear friend’s favorite song “Paperback” to raise money for 2 Wish Upon A Star, a charity close to his families heart, and when that single reached #1 on the UK iTunes Charts, his life revived and he has forged a foundation on which he now builds a renewed dream of reaching the heats of everyone he can.
Not only is Chis Kelly an formidable musician, he also successfully operates the Rock Academy Wales, at 42 he has made part of his life’s work to help young people create music and fosters their dreams as well. Performer and Philanthropist, Chris Kelly is creating a path to international regard.
We at IndiePulse got to listen to 3 amazing tracks by Chris Kelly, Letter To Myself, Password and Beautiful Ways.
Letter To Myself is a beautiful song of looking back into your own past to find your future, and finding that in every loss, there is a treasure you cannot buy if you wanted to. Password is creative and has a whimsical way of looking at the tough choices we all have to make, that looking in from the outside sort of song, while Beautiful Ways is a song with a more romantic and sensitive tone. And in listening to this song, I feel that his words were meant for me, helping me to deal with my pains, in this I feel Chis can heal hearts with his music, and I am happier now than I was just a few moments ago. To take from his own words “He paints pictures in such beautiful ways”
In looking for music I can share with you from Chris Kelly, I found his Bandcamp portal, the tracks reviewed were sent in a manner I could not share, but this is right there waiting for you to enjoy, I suggest you do.
This track speaks for itself, as it will speak to you.
