Lisa Kelly has been a musician all her life. She got her first piano at the age of 5, took lessons, and wrote her first song at age six. Between then and her decision to work more seriously on her own music career, she worked at various jobs and raised two children, all the while listening to all kinds of music whenever she had a chance. She has played in several San Francisco area bands for the last 12 years, in front of audiences ranging from rowdy bar crowds to festivals, playing mandolin, sometimes with a little Jimi thing behind her head that has made the crowd go wild, piano, and singing background vocals. She is a very good studio player as well, having recorded on several independently released cd's. Her specialty is playing ANY song, whether she's heard it or not, and can get a good track down in the studio within one or two takes. Her favorite music to play is music she has never heard before, off the cuff, spontaneously.
Since the release of her first solo CD, "Into The Fire" in May 2005, she has formed her own band and plays whenever possible with them.
Description of the music:
Secondary Genre: Adult Contemporary
Original acoustic folk rock with female vocals reminiscent of the 60's about life, love, death and parenthood, from morbid little ditties to haunting melodies that have been known to make grown men cry.
