Bekah Kelso is a folk-hop gypsy, traveling singer/songwriter, health-nut party girl, actress, writer, seeker of the light, girl with creative juju... and she totally loves you already. Her 2011 release "Departures" is a stylish, groove-oriented pop EP with lyrics that are introspective, uplifting, and clever.
"Departures is more than a worthwhile listen. Not only does Kelso have a big, rich voice but she also has something to say as a creative songwriter that incorporates great driving melodies with stylish, imaginative, poetic lyrics. Departures is a well produced gem." - Sharmin Petri, producer of the Houston Women's Music Festival
The journey for Departures took up most of 2011, beginning with a successful fan-funding campaign that raised $4,500 for the album's production, polishing, and replication. Initial recording was done at Studio 1400 in San Antonio, TX where Kelso worked with talented San Antonio producer Damian Rodriguez for the first time. Much musical chemistry ensued, Rodriguez adding tremendous color and depth to each song. The two found their footing as a creative team and continue working together today.
