  Kelly's Lot
Kelly's Lot Kelly recorded her first demo CD, "Kelly's Lot", with J. Peter Robinson, former keyboard player for Phil Collins and The J. Geils Band. One song, Broken Man, can be heard in the NBC movie "Buried Secrets". "Kelly's Lot-Live at the Troubadour" was added to make the promotional compilation "Kelly's Lot - Chapter 1 & 2". College stations all over the U.S.A. have spun the demo along with a few commercial stations. KLOS 95.5 and KLSX 97.1 have both featured Kelly's Lot.

Selections from her diverse collection of original songs, form a dynamic set of sometimes mellow and moody; sometimes raucous and radiant; but always scintillating soul searching lyrics. Her melodies weave a bluesy-folk influence with a rock foundation. Kelly takes her audience inside their heart and soul by delving deep inside her own every time she sings. Music and emotion become one when Kelly's Lot takes the stage.

With vocals and guitar, Kelly leads "the Lot" which consists of Thomas Richter on lead guitar, bass player Chris Robertson, Sebastian Sheehan on drums and percussion, and Perry Robertson playing rhythm guitar.


Kelly's Lot - Test Drive Review -Mixdown Magazine

Kelly's lot was sent to us out of the blue via our web site. We were pleasantly surprised when we got our hands on this 13 track enhanced CD. They were also kind enough to send us a complete track list with session notes. (You know that we eat that stuff up here at Mixdown.)

Listening to the CD the first thing you notice is Kelly's style. Kelly's vocals are crisp, clear, and very unique. She sounds like a cross between Fiona Apple and Natalie Merchant. Kelly's Lot has a certain blues/rock flavor to it. The first track "Black & Blue" has a really well recorded guitar to accompany Kelly's soothing voice. The song almost sounds like Bonnie Raitt in her earlier days. "Broken Man", can be heard in the NBC movie "Buried Secrets". Our personal favorite song was "Close My Eyes". This song has a Spanish style guitar and whistling on it. The spooky overtone is the kind of stuff that is destined for radio airplay.

We were amazed with the way that this album was recorded. "Test Drive" was recorded in Perry Robertson's house on a Mackie 1604 vlz onto 24 tracks of a Studioframe. Perry ran a series of stand tests on the recordings. He listened to it in a car, on a cheap stereo systems, etc. The recording was very well done. They only suggestion that we have is to thicken Kelly's vocals some. Granted they are very nice now, but they could be like Sarah McLaclan with a hint more reverb or a stereo split pair on Kelly's leads.
