      Love beautiful Kelly and her music stylings. Especially liked 10,000 pieces in Orbit! Camera angle made her hands look like she could palms a basketball (maybe she can!). I had some issues with CW - would not work on my Kindle Fire and worked great on my iPhone but I could not figure out how to chat on that. Sound and video quality was pretty good though in spite of the venue - not exactly a concert hall or recording studio. Willa was so cute!

Born in New York and raised in Northern California, Kelly Stewart Vogel learned to sing around midnight campfires, in church choirs, and within the loving swell of raucus gospel groups. She polished her vocal chops in San Francisco rock bands but found her niche in the the city's singer-songwriter scene, honing her piano-playing and singing into a soulful, haunting sound. Infused with gospel, blues, jazz, folk, and pop, Kelly's music is a composite of opposites, a found sound weaving together catchy piano riffs, heart-felt singing, and memorable melodies. As one writer put it, "you might hear influences in Kelly's music, but unlike most singer-songwriters, Kelly has a unique approach to lyrics, singing, and piano-playing. She is a true original and an exciting talent."

Her lyrics are honest, intimate portraits of people, relationships, and events, and reveal a rich and colorful landscape of emotion where the internal often trumps the external. Her songwriting reflects her love of the written word, in all its colorful, stark, opaque, transparent beauty, and draws on her experience as a writing teacher and accomplished prose writer.

San Francisco has been her longtime playground for exploring art, music, and nature, and the city is often a vital character in her stories. You can feel San Franscico in these songs, just as you can feel it in her photographs. It is her city, a place she knows well and lovingly shares with longtime friends, family, and her partner.

Pregnant throughout the recording of her most recent album -- Lessons Unexpected -- Kelly says she "is pretty sure her baby will know this album inside and out." We hope you will know it just as well.
