Damon Kelly, lead singer and guitarist of the popular quick-rising rock/metal band, Love N Revenge, goes behind the scenes of his band’s new album “Karma” and discusses his deeply personal relationship with music.

Love N Revenge, one of LA’s hottest new groups, is the resurrection of pure guitar-driven melodic arena rock emulating, inspired and influenced by the biggest and best era of rock on the planet. The group is comprised of Damon Kelly (lead vocals, backing vocals, guitars), John Lisi (guitars and bass), and Vic Rivera (drums, keys, bass, backing vocals).

According to lead singer and guitarist Damon Kelly, music has always been in his blood and it consumes every breath he takes – from writing to recording to touring, and all other aspects on the business side. “It’s infectious,” Kelly muses. “It’s everything – who I am and what I do.”

Kelly, like most artists, has a lot of inspirations and influences for his art. “My musical journey has been a vision since I was three years old… Motley Crue is essentially the reason why I am who I am today, but my influences ranch from the entire era of melodic arena rock to Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Waylon Jennings, and Kenny Rogers,” Kelly explains. “True inspiration will always come from simple life experience, which tends to be either love or revenge. It’s all about hitting that nerve to help or heal someone around the world.”

Kelly describes his group as bring about passion, heart, drive, and feel good rock and roll, just wanting to have some positive impact on the world and the band’s listeners. Love N Revenge’s new album “Karma” charted at number 3 for top-seller on NEH Records earlier this year, and keeps getting stronger with sales. Damon is ecstatic and proud of the songwriting on this album and always takes pride in choosing the songs to make the cut that will give the buyers and lovers of rock and roll the best possible album. “Every song is carefully written and dissected, torn apart phrase by phrase, word by word, melody by melody,” he enthuses. “I am very proud of this album for the quality of each song. That’s my job as a songwriter: to outdo myself.”

Damon teases the group’s upcoming sophomore album, saying, “we always want to stay on top of what we do and keep exceeding expectations. Just wait ‘til you hear it for yourselves.” Their new album has a planned release for February 2018. “It’s endless and we are definitely here to stay as a staple in our family of melodic arena rock,” Kelly insists.
