Kelly Greene: Bio

Kelly Greene®
Artist Bio

With a voice to rival the depth and range of legends like Pat Benetar, Annie Lennox, and Ann Wilson, Kelly Greene is a musical force to be reckoned with. This Rock Singer-Songwriter/Musician serves up a tall drink of modern rock with a heavy twist of old school bite and lyrics deserving attention. Taking musical cues from influences like Weezer, Third Eye Blind and Van Halen, Greene delivers killer Rock that drives from beginning to end with raw emotion and no apologies and is expecting to release her latest single “Wait” in August of 2010.

Striking, and yes, we mean striking, the ivories for the first time at three years old, Kelly Greene displayed obvious talent at a very young age. Years of childhood performances and school choirs led to time on the road out of high school playing and singing for crowds of ten to 5,000+. It wasn’t until after her time on the road that she decided to pick up a guitar and really go for it – to push through the boundaries that had been set for her and be the honest, hard-hitting, voice of Rock n’ Roll today’s music is sorely missing. Many bands claim not to sound like anyone out there, and although you can clearly hear her musical influences, Greene’s voice truly stands out as there really is no particular female voice out there that sounds like hers at the moment.

Having been invited to open for national acts such as The Exies and Smile Empty Soul, within her first three shows, Kelly Greene has already proven that she can play with the big boys and isn’t afraid to be selective when it comes to when and where she plays.

“My fans are very loyal and they will travel quite a distance to get to a show, so I want to be sure that it’s a great venue and an amazing show for them, and worth their effort to get there; after all, playing out is about the fans, isn’t it?” And boy, do those fans respond to Greene! Whether performing before standing-room only crowds, like the album launch for “I Wish I Was Alive” at the Cutting Room in New York City, or having her concert streamed live around the world by rVibe, Greene is never more at home than when she’s out there doing her thing.
Greene’s current successes are many: she’s inked a deal with AMP Energy Drink as a featured artist on their college radio promotion the AMP 4-Pack and has been featured in the AMP Energy Nation Newscast. Simultaneously, Greene’s radio campaign, run by Jon Flanagan of Flanagan Promotions, showed enormous early success; In the first month of the campaign alone “I Wish I Was Alive” has already nabbed the #13 spot on WRKC Wilkes-Barre, PA with four weeks of charting (CMJ), made the Top 5 Best New CD’s on WRUR Rochester, NY, landed on the Top 30 Most Played CD’s for WUSR Scranton, PA, and was in light – medium rotation on over 100 stations. Her most recent honors include five honorable mentions and one special recognition in the Songdoor International Songwriting Contest for five of the songs from “I Wish I Was Alive.” Great music rises to the top and Kelly’s on her way.
