About the Artist:

At one point in her decades-long career the MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE said: "Surprises don't often crop up on the well-trodden blues circuit. So welcome Kelley Hunt. This Kansan is a full-blown phenomenon: powerhouse singer, hardboogieing pianist, polished songwriter..." That review serves as perhaps the most economical description of an artist sometimes difficult to describe. Roots R&B/Americana singer/songwriter/piano player/guitarist KELLEY HUNT has always been a challenge to the music industry's penchant for easy artist definitions -- a woman who muscled her way onto the scene on her own terms with an identity steeped in blues/roots/gospel traditions and a refreshing originality. 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. It's all delivered with a commanding. passionate stage presence and superior vocal, keyboard and songwriting skills. So for first-time listeners Kelley can be a lot to unpack and it might take hearing a good sample of her music to get the full picture.

The narrative of her music includes 1800+ performances with appearances on a long list of premier North American and International roots, blues and pan-genre festival stages, six times on American Public Media's 'A Prairie Home Companion', seven critically acclaimed studio albums and two singles and 150,000+ indie units sold and downloaded on her own label.
