[Kelly] Bellerose is a Salt Lake City-based artist borne from the effervescent brush strokes that have colored her life, offering music that digs deep into American soil to cultivate a rootsy core. Listening to her art is to anticipate what’s around the next curve, as each cut is as winding and adventurous as she is. With songs ranging from the dramatic to the bare-boned, all are poignantly TRUE.
Kelly’s homegrown and gutsy, yet vulnerable vocals are peppered with a piquant edge, and although she’s always been a West Coast girl, one can witness Kelly’s Okie lineage echoing through every note she sings, expressing the etchings of a thoroughly lived, wounded and won, life on the psyche.
Kelly’s original songs are honest and intense, framed by modest lyrics that provoke the innermost musings of the soul. Kelly believes that music, like life, though intermingled with a wandering range of complexities, ultimately boils down to the most basic universal and hard-learned lessons. Whether you connect with or are unsettled by Kelly’s tunes, once they get in your head and heart, they’re hard to shake. Kelly thinks that might be a good thing.
