all about me
THE SUPER-HYPE BIO:
Lori Kelley is a performing songwriter of Folk/Pop/Fiction and sometimes Country.
(But really, she’s an ageless Enchantress who conjures up meaningful lyrics and casts them into magical melodies. Lori does all this with other mystical beings called “Artists” who record these songs, hoping, like herself to "make it big.")
CONCEPT/HOBBIT ALBUM ALERT - September 22nd, 2023!
This new full length album is called “A Tale or Two to Tell" and it's packed full with lively instrumentation and beer-hall harmonies.
Come away with Lori Kelley to Middle Earth and go on a mini adventure with these songs that are all about Hobbits, Wizards, Elves, Dwarves and Dragons! Lori collaborated with her producer W. Terry Fritsch to create a truly unique Americana - Tolkien experience for a face-paced world to slow down and tuck in with.
Kelley has some of Nashville's finest players weaving their magic for your listening pleasure. Todd Lombardo burns up the banjo and mandolin throughout the record. Deanie Richardson plays a fearsome violin solo on the title track, "A Tale or two to Tell." Jeremy Fetzer (Steelism) gives "No Friend of Mine" a haunting spaghetti western vibe. The backing vocals, sung by W. Terry Fritsch, Bryan Letcher and Michelle Nielson, are unarguably the most epic BGVs Nashville has heard in an age! The other amazing players who shared their magic on this album include Marcus Finnie, Lance Martin, Ory Brochet, Matt Carey and Alex Petrounov. Mastered by Brian Foraker!
P.S. - "A Tale or Two to Tell" has been pressed in Seafoam Green vinyl by United Record Pressing in Nashville, TN.
