  1. Review by Andre N.

    It was a pleasure to work with Kelley. I was hoping to find voice for some harmonies that could add a complimentary texture to the existing vocals, and Kelley nailed it. She sings with nuance, authenticity and thoughtfulness, which for me is refreshing. I would certainly hope to work with her again.

  2. Review by Sylvie's Songs

    Kelly has a really lovely voice and is very easy to work with.
