      just caught the last few songs but am now a fan. Thanks for putting the power back into the music. Power of communication, inspiration, human relation, reaching out, holding on...

      Rorie Kelly is a wonderful performer and songwriter, and her first "Songs to Start a Fire" broadcast was a very thoughtful performance that promoted self examination, sharing, and healing. A wonderful initiative and much needed.

"Her sound was so powerful, she acoustically filled every square inch of space." - Canvas Magazine

Rorie Kelly is a small redheaded tornado of sound. Her aggressive acoustic guitar style complements raw, powerhouse vocals to pack a serious punch. First-time listeners often comment, "I can't believe that voice came out of that body."

Rorie has been making music since her teenage years and was strongly influenced by the tell-all, stream-of-consciousness songwriting style of the 90s. "Growing up I was listening to Liz Phair, Alanis Morissette, and Ben Folds Five alongside Joni Mitchell and The Beatles," she says. "That's where my foundation comes from as a musician." Over the years, Rorie has been compared to Janis Joplin and Alanis Morisette for her high-powered vocals, and Joni Mitchell and Sarah Bareilles for her catchy-confessional brand of songwriting.

"Independent, free, and full of complexity. Difficult to cage. rorie kelly is that type of indie rock." - Long Island Pulse Magazine



Rorie's debut album, Wish Upon a Bottlecap, was released in late 2010 and went on to receive airplay around the country on AAA and college radio stations. Her songwriting caught the ear of radio host Garrison Leykham (who commissioned her to write the theme song for his documentary Comic on a Half Shell), and the Solarfest Songwriting Competition, where she placed in the top 10 in 2013. Later that year, Rorie released a performance album titled Sincerely Live, featuring knockout performances of fan favorites as well as some of the new tunes that had accumulated since the release of Wish Upon a Bottlecap. In 2014 the singer/songwriter has brought her songs around the country, showcasing at SXSW in Austin, summer NAMM in Nashville and at home in New York City and Long Island.



Plans for 2015 include a northeast tour, recording a few singles and hopefully a new studio album as well, and getting very little sleep indeed. For more information, please visit www.roriekelly.com.
