Battling the Sun EP
Currently based in San Diego, CA., Kelly, a Chicago native, is a rare talent with a lyric-based, melodic sound that is an original blend of her Chicago roots in soul and blues merged with rock and acoustic elements. Her passionate performance style is derived from her days of street performing in Chi-town, incessant touring, and an obvious devotion to the music. The "Battling the Sun" EP includes six songs, all exuding Kelly's passion for music and zestful urgings for her audience to take life by the horns and lay their burdens down. The sun is a metaphor for the seat of the soul and the message is, battling one's higher self is an utter waste of time and one we will never win. Listeners will hear a more Indie Rock side of Kelly as opposed to her soulful, acoustic based sound showcased on past albums.
