Kelly Renee is a Vocalist Songwriter & Producer currently based in the Midwest. With sassy sweet and raw vocals, you'll hear flavors of soul, jazz and funk. The NJ native has years experience gracing clubs and venues from NYC to Chicago.
Kelly Renee was built from music enthusiasts. Her home was full of R&B, jazz, pop and soul. Her parents’ vinyl records are among her most prized possessions. She always had a melody in her head, and was always writing stories and poems as a kid. She began formerly singing in college in the women's choir.
Kelly's biggest musical inspirations range from Marvin Gaye and Aretha Franklin to D'Angelo and Jill Scott. As a singer in NYC, she recorded songs randomly with different indie producers, but mainly performed with a few bands.
When deciding to focus on an original project, her chance connection with Producer Chuck Slay began an easy and enjoyable collaboration. One of their songs is “You Linger”, a soulful ode to New Love which was released in Spring 2018 (and reached #5 on Amazon UK Hot New Releases Digital - R&B). She considers her original compositions as mini 'love stories"... relationship love, love for self, and definitely love for Life.
She's excited for upcoming performances and new music! Keep in touch by joining her email list and following her social media.
