Formed in 1996, Kelly's Lot, who has toured all over the USA, has decided to cross the Atlantic ocean to play in Belgium and France. Honored with the "Best Blues Band" award by Rock City News and named one of the Top 13 bands in the U.S. by Independent Songwriter Magazine, the band is ready to expand its reach. For this first trip abroad they decided to trim down to an acoustic trio which includes Kelly Z on vocals, Perry Robertson on guitar and Linda Moss on harmonica. No worries, the trio packs a punch comparable to the full band. Built on a solid Blues/Rock foundation, Kelly's Lot plays Americana music with a slightly Alternative edge. Having a voice compared to Melissa Etheridge and Janis Joplin but ultimately all her own, Kelly brings emotion, energy and excitement to every performance.
Kelly Z recorded her first demo CD, "Kelly's Lot", with J. Peter Robinson, former keyboard player for Phil Collins and The J. Geils Band. The next recording "Kelly's Lot-Live at the Troubadour" was their first of 3 Live CDs which put the band on the map as a band to see live. The band's first official release, "Test Drive," was produced by Robertson, bringing in friends like Scott Sanders to mix and Phil Morales to create the enhanced part of the CD and a music video of the band's remake of Melanie's "Brand New Key" directed by Catherine Hardwicke (Thirteen, Nativity Story).
The next live CD "Get Hip To Hep C", began the band's official work with a national campaign to raise awareness about Hepatitis C including Kelly's founding of HepCAware.org. Kelly's Lot has been involved in raising awareness of Hepatitis C since 2000 after lead singer Kelly Z lost a close friend to the virus.
Their last 2 CDs were the live acoustic "Trio" and the full band EP, "Come To This." Their new release "The Light" was recorded at EarCandy Studios, the company responsible for the sound behind Juno, Lars and The Real Girl and Rambo 4.
Los Angeles-based Kelly's Lot weaves blues and roadhouse rock into a passionate combination. Selections from their diverse selection of original songs, form a dynamic set of sometimes mellow and moody; sometimes raucous and radiant; but always soul-searching lyrics.
