Delivered with a passionate heart, singer-songwriter Alexandra Kelly’s brand of pop/rock is a breath of fresh air. “ I want my music to touch people and grip their hearts. If you’ve fallen in love, so have I. If you’ve had your heart broken, so have I. I want people to relate to my music. In the end we are all human and music to me, is the language of the human experience”, says Alexandra.
Alexandra voice was amazing everyone by age 4. She started playing piano at 6, and by 12 was teaching herself to play guitar and writing songs. In 2005, barely 15, Alexandra was voted the winner of a New York radio station’s talent search for an original song written and performed for the competition. That summer she joined the NY Singer-Songwriter Sessions and began performing in venues such as the Bitter End and the infamous CBGB’s. At age 16, Alexandra released her self- produced debut CD entitled “Love & Lies”. With rave reviews from critics and fans alike, this mostly acoustic CD was considered a huge break in to the music world for the young artist.
In the summer of 2007, Alexandra was invited by the Grammy Foundation to be a part of their program for talented teen musicians. She spent the next two summers out in Los Angeles working with Grammy winners and nominees. In 2008, Alexandra had the honor of connecting with Martin Guitars and she became the proud owner of a beautiful custom instrument that bears her signature.
Alexandra took time in 2009 to return to the recording studio and finish her second album. She tracked 11 completely original songs with multi-platinum award wining producer Kenny Lamb., who reached out to her after hearing her on MySpace. The new CD entitled “It’s Complicated” is her first full studio album.
With her powerful voice and easy smile, Alexandra is also a natural on stage. “Being in the studio is definitely a big love of mine, but nothing can compare to a live show,” says Alexandra “I love being able to feel the energy in the crowd and sharing a piece of myself with them. That’s what my music, a piece of me”
Alexandra vocals have been described as powerful and intimate at the same time and her melodies stay with you long after the first listen. She is a musical artist who should be seen and heard. When it comes to Alexandra Kelly, hear her once and you will remember her always.
