rorie kelly New York

rorie kelly is on a quest to bring her songs to ears around the world through the cunning use of the internet and a small blue Toyota with over 200,000 miles on it.

rorie writes songs that are melodic and catchy but more thoughtful and introspective than the average pop tune. Her vocals are bigger than you would expect out of her small body and her guitar playing is powerful and percussive.
