Kelley's BIO :. She makes music with it's righteous roots intact that also crosses boundaries, has an open-minded, exploratory attitude and takes on social and political issues. Together with a commanding, passionate stage presence and superior vocal, keyboard and songwriting skills she has earned the respect of critics and fans across North America and Europe. Before that came the sound of her mother singing jazz and blues - her first musical memories - and the influence of her New Orleans Gospel singer grandmother.
Her career path so far has been a story of fierce independence, incredible will, unassailable cred as a blistering live performer and hard-won accomplishment.
Hunt made her debut as an actress in Bunker Hillwhere she also contributed music to the film's soundtrack. And its storyline is an equally deep illustration of her multi-faceted writing, celebrating both the joy of life and Sur Le Cheval De Bois - Robert Schumann, Samson François, Paul Kletzki, Orchestre National de la Rad impermanence, while quietly reminding that the earth is a delicate and mortal place that must be tended to flourish.
I was inspired by looking out my kitchen window while I was playing guitar and seeing the bare branches of a tree covered in Masquerade Suite - Khachaturian* / Tchaikovsky* - Leopold Stokowski Conducting The Philharmonic-Symp, and I started to think about the layers we all have in our lives and the possibilities that come with Gates Of Eden - Kelley Hunt - The Beautiful Bones of them.
The McCrary sisters, the three daughters of Sam McCrary, the founder of the historic gospel group the Fairfield Four, also appear, lending their angelic voices to three numbers. I hear the wah wah guitar right from the start Played by John Jackson. A funky soul sound, Mark Jordan on the Hammond B3, one of my favorite drummers Bryan Owings keeping a steady beat, there's even a trumpet and a saxophone.
The lyrics remind us to take a look at ourselves, understand how valuable we all are and that we should live life to the fullest. Kelley herself plays the old school acoustic piano. She co-writes most of her songs with Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg. Regina even shakes the tambourine!
The lady is a very good piano player too, by the way. Excellent guitar solos, Mr. John Jackson! Yes, we can ride all night like this! The background choir is called The Kelphonics now. That sounds simple, indeed. She puts heart and soul in this perfectly phrased song, it Gates Of Eden - Kelley Hunt - The Beautiful Bones obviously a lot to her.
Electric guitar and Hammond B3 create, once again, a beautiful atmospheric sound in the classic way. Compliments for John Jackson, who creates magnificent atmospheric sounds with his acoustic and electric guitars, using lots of effects. Definitely a highlight on this album. The electric guitar and Hammond B3 are swinging! A gorgeous solo on tenor saxophone by Mitch Reilly surprises us halfway the track.
Then the track fades into space. John treats us one more time to a breathtakingly beautiful guitar solo. Paper Cuts - Nirvana - Bleach regrets or alibis, indeed.
The musicians she worked with on this record formed her very own dream team, surrounding her with inspired playing and lifting the songs to a higher level. The mix and overall sound are perfect. Any critical remarks? Absolutely not. Bodde - April 14th,
