In the last 2 years, Kelley McRae has played over 300 shows coast to coast and traveled over 75,000 miles in her VW van. Along the way she encountered the people and places that inspired the songs on her new album, BRIGHTER THAN THE BLUES. Kelley’s music can be described as heartfelt Americana carrying a sense of hope and light, and she has found impressive fans: Paste Magazine gave her four stars, and WNYC’s ‘Soundcheck’ named her performance one of the years best. Kelley performs as an acoustic duo with her husband Matt, and they have performed at such venues as The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, The Red Clay Theatre in Atlanta, and The Living Room in NYC. Previously residing in NYC, the duo is currently writing and recording new material in a cabin in the Nantahala Forest of North Carolina.
